On Tuesday April 11, the Chelan Golf Team hosted golfers representing 28 teams at Gamble Sands.  With the final golfers finishing the course at the 6 1/2 hr mark, it was a long and windy day for all.

Results as follows:
  • Overall team winner:  Sehome (310) and also 1A/2A team winner
  • 3A/4A team winner:  Gig Harbor (322)
  • Individual winner:  Baylor Larrabee (Ferndale – 3 under 69)
  •      2nd Place (tiebreaker):  Carson Clinton (Chelan – even par 72)
  •      3rd Place:  Wes Bothel (Sehome – even par 72)
For the teams from the CTL, Chelan was followed by Omak (422), Cascade (466), and Quincy (not enough players for a team score).
I was very happy and encouraged by the Chelan boys team who showed a great improvement overall from their last outing at the Jack Barnes Invite (Three Lakes GC) before spring break.
Carson Clinton (9th grade) had a great day and even with some close misses still came out even par – his best score as a Chelan golfer in his young career.
As this was only our 4th match and 1 practice on our own golf course, we have a lot of improvement still to make, but it’s nice to finally have an open golf course to practice on and to see some scores settling down – a good trend to be on!
A big thank you to my Assistant Coach Amber Finch for running this and the girls tournament (Wednesday, April 12) and all the hard work she puts in concerning it, and to the volunteer parents who helped with scoring (Clintons, Domser).
