Goats Golf hit the links against Cascade, Okanogan and Omak


One Chelan golfer keeps his head down and takes a practice swing. The Chelan boys golf team finished in 3rd place at their first meet on Saturday and tied for second with Omak on Thursday.

Another Chelan golfer adjusts his hands and feet just before his swing. The Chelan girls golf team won both of their tournaments on Tuesday and Thursday, but mostly because there wasn’t another team that could field five girls. Both guys and girls will play at Gamble Sands this week on Wednesday for boys and Thursday for girls.

 

CHELAN - The weather was a bit breezy last week, but that didn’t stop the Goats from doing admirably in their first two home tournaments of the season last week. 

On Tuesday, April 11, Chelan hosted a CTL league match against Cascade and Okanogan. The Cascade boys and Chelan girls took team honors. 

Cascade boys scored 393, Okanogan placed second with 453 and Chelan got third with a combined score of 481. All five scores from each school are added at the end of each round to get the total. Corbin Morley shot a 105, Seth Hannu 119, Connor Abel 135 and Steven Williams a 122. 

“For the girls, Myranda Evans had the best score of the day with a 107, with teammate Ariel Schwantes coming in second with a 112,” head coach Kirk Einspahr said in his game report.

Emily Christenson shot a 129, Madi Harrison a 119 and Andrea Villa a 140. 

On Thursday, the Goats golf team followed up with another tournament against Cascade and Omak. 

Again, the Cascade boys dominated the field and finished in first with a total score of ironically 393, the same as two days prior. Chelan and Omak both tied for second with a total score of 455. 

The top four scores for the Chelan boys were: Morley with a 108, Hannu a 113, Luis Gallegos a 121, Steven Williams a 113. For the girls, Annika Nolen shot a 124, Schwantes a 114 and Christenson a 137. 

The Lady Goats took first in their respective tournament (as the only team with enough varsity golfers) and Evans finished with team honors for the second time in a week with a score of 110. 

Chelan will really get to hit the links this week when they head over to Gamble Sands to host an invitational on Wednesday, April 19 for boys and Thursday, April 20 for the girls. 

“It should bring in some top competition and a full boys field and nearly full girls field as well,” Einspahr concluded.
