Chelan vs. Okanogan at Omak

OMAK - A cloudy but mild day greeted the Chelan golfers at the Okanogan Valley Golf Club today as we took on Omak at their home course.  Omak was not able to field enough varsity players for a team, and Chelan improved on their last team score at this same golf course from two weeks ago, though I was hoping for an even better improvement.  The Chelan girls did not travel with us today as Omak has no girls on their team this year.

Chelan sophomore Miles Grossberg continues his team- and league-leading scoring as he came in today with a 6-over par 77, leading Omak's Brady Tonasket by 10 strokes (87) and Chelan freshman teammate Joey Gasper by 15 (92).

Our next match will be this Thursday when Okanogan comes to our home course.  The Chelan boys team was beaten by the Okanogan boys at their home course by 20 strokes two weeks ago, so it should be a challenge for our boys as they need to compete at a higher level and start taking some strokes off their games.  Our #3-6 guys are where we really need to get some better scoring in order to be competitive with Okanogan, especially when it comes time for the District and State-qualifying match (May 14).

Chelan vs. Okanogan at home

CHELAN - The Chelan HS boys golfers had a good day today, taking team and medalist honors over Okanogan, who had thumped Chelan when they visited Okanogan at their course.  Chelan’s Miles Grossberg (soph) had a very good day with a 3-over-par 75, leading all golfers on a day when many others, including the number 1 and 2 golfers from Okanogan he was playing with, were having rough rounds.  Chelan’s David Chavez (jr) continues to show improvement and had the 2nd best score of the day and another PR, coming in with a 94.  Chelan’s Ainsley Pehrson (soph) also had a good day, coming in with (what he thought was probably) a PR at 100.

On the girls side of things, neither Okanogan nor Chelan were able to post a team score, and individual scores also showed that they were having their struggles today.

Chelan travels to Cascade next Tuesday, April 30 for what should be some very good competition for our girls, as Cascade is the only other CTL team with enough girls for a team score (and also the team that took the District title last year), and then hosts Quincy at home on Wednesday, May 1.
