Boys Edge Past Clarkston
The Boys' Golf team traveled to the Links Golf Club in Post Falls on Wednesday, March 29th, and came out on top. Junior Eric Martin led the way shooting a 77, while Freshman Dane Bednar followed with an 87. Terry Bryne shot a 93, Adam Scharnhorst 96, and Ethan Kramer rounded out the Hounds with a 106. In total, the Hounds shot 459 shots, just edging past Clarkston's 460. East Valley came in third with 500 total shots, followed by West Valley's 504 and Cheney's 533.
Coach Craig McCormick was very happy with their performances, stating, "We are really pleased to have eked out a victory by one stroke over Clarkston. Our kids played steady in a steady rain. Eric played really well and broke under 80 for the first time this year, so that was great to see. We had one varsity golfer sick, but the other kids stepped up."
The Hounds have now won both of the GNL tournaments thus far, with two more to come. Go Hounds!
Girls' Golf Powers Through
Last Wednesday the girl's golf team won their tournament scoring 159 using the stable-ford modified scoring system. In the stable-ford system you want to get more points instead of normal scoring in which you want to get less. Here's how it works: for a bogey you get plus one, for a par you get plus two, for a birdie you get plus three, and so on. Julia Lupkes lead the team with scoring a nice score of 49, the second highest scored at this event.
The boys' and girls' golf teams traveled to the Fairways Golf Course in Cheney on Tuesday, April 26. Max Remaley led the boys' team shooting an 82 finishing fourth place overall. The Hounds finished second behind Clarkston by 13 strokes. "Max surprised us all coming up big for our team with a low score." Said senior Bryce Oldroyd. Pullman moves up to second place in league, one point behind Clarkston. The Pullman girls' golf team also finished second place behind Clarkston as sophomore Julia Lupkes finished second place overall. The team moves up tied for third place with East Valley in the GNL. The next match for both teams will be a home match at Palouse Ridge on Thursday, May 5, in Pullman Washington.
