>Crook County defeats West Albany by two strokes to wniThe Crook County High School girls golf team has had a good week.
On Tuesday they finished in third place at the nine-team Bend Invitational, which was played at Eagle Crest Resort because Bend's home course was not yet playable. The only teams defeating the Cowgirls were defending 5A champion Summit and 4A champion Sisters.
Then on Thursday the Cowgirls rolled through a five-team-field defeating West Albany by two strokes to win the tournament at Tokatee Golf Course.
"They were pretty pumped and I was proud of them," said Head Coach Grant Patterson. "There were some pretty good teams there. West Albany is tough and of Course Redmond is 6A, and we played well. The team was fired up. It was a good bonding trip and beautiful weather which you don't get very often at Tokatee this time of year."
Sarah Crofcheck led the Cowgirls in both tournaments, shooting an 87 on Tuesday and coming back with an 88 on Thursday.
JoBeth Hamon also played well on Tuesday, firing an 89. Hamon did not play on Thursday, but Rachel Kelso had a great day shooting an 89.
"Kelso never shot in the 90's in a varsity tournament before, and she just passed the nineties and went straight to the 80's, and Williams came in with a 43 on the back nine in her first tournament of the year," said Patterson.
Patterson also noted that Crofcheck has played very steady this year, and that every Cowgirl golfer shot in the 40's on the back nine on Thursday at Tokatee.
Complete results from both tournaments will be in Tuesday's paper.
