Chelan boys golf take District, CTL Team Championship


The Boys Chelan Golf team is 2019 CTL and District Champs.

Headed to State next week will be - Miles Grossberg, Joey Gasper, Parker Brown, and representing the girls going to State is Kaylin Boykin.

Chelan HS hosted the District 6 and CTL Golf Championships May 7 at Lake Chelan GC under cloudy and drizzly conditions.  The late afternoon brought relief from the drizzle but also cooled the temperature considerably.

On the boys side of things, a hot duel between the top two players led to Okanogan’s Billy Norwill (sr) taking individual medalist honors and named CTL Player of the Year, coming in with an 8-over par 80 (41/39) to take a one stroke victory over Chelan’s Miles Grossberg (so) who shot an 81 (40/41).  Coming in 3rd was Chelan’s Joey Gasper (fr) with a 90 (45/45).  All three of these boys qualified for state, as did the following (with their scores):  Brady Tonasket (fr) Omak 97, Destyn Markel (jr) Omak 99, Isaac Cortes (so) Cascade 100, Parker Brown (so) Chelan 101.  In a playoff for the alternate position to state were two boys from Okanogan, Jacob Stanley (jr) and Weston Wood (so); Weston won the alternate position on the second playoff hole. [Chelan will take 3 boys to state, Omak 2, and Okanogan and Cascade 1 each]

Taking the District 6 and CTL Team Championship for the boys was Chelan, coming in with a 375, beating the team from Okanogan by 17 strokes.  The other two CTL teams did not have enough boys to have a team score.

For the girls, Riverside Christian (RCS) took the District 6 Championship with a team score of 465, while Cascade took the CTL championship with 508.  Chelan came in 3rd overall with a 539.  RCS will take the District 6 Player of the Year, Jessica Vye (sr) 98, to state, along with the alternate, 5th place Greysen Swanson (jr) 120.  Cascade will take 2 girls to state, 2nd place Emma Halseth (jr) 99, and 4th place Emma Nielson (jr) 116,  and Chelan will take one to state, 3rd place Kaylin Boykin (jr) 108.

The State Championships will be held at Olympia Country & Golf Club (Olympia) for the boys, and at Tumwater Valley GC (Tumwater) next week Tuesday (21st) and Wednesday (22nd), with a practice round on Monday (20th).

A big “THANK YOU” to the Lake Chelan Golf Course for hosting our District/League Championships today—we appreciate all you do for us all through the season and now at the end of our season too!
