Crook County finishes second to Sisters at Madras Invitational
The Crook County High School girls golf team finished second to Sisters in the seven-team Madras invitational on Tuesday.
The tournament was originally scheduled to be played at Eagle Crest Resort, but was moved to Kah-Nee-Tah Resort because of weather and course conditions.
Sisters easily outdistanced the field shooting a 341 for the round, while the Cowgirls shot a 380 and third place Summit recorded a 386.
"We struggled a little bit on the back nine," said Head Coach Grant Patterson. "But Sisters is a good team, and we were able to sneak by Summit for second."
Summit High School is the defending state 5A golf champions and they had defeated the Cowgirls earlier in the season. The Cowgirls have yet to play with their entire varsity lineup this year so they look to get stronger next week when they travel to Eugene Country Club on Monday with their full team.
"Rachel Kelso played really well again," said Patterson. "And Kersey Wilcox shot a 42 on the front nine. Sarah Crofcheck struggled a little bit on the back nine, but she still shot a 91. We had some trouble with the back nine. It played harder than the front, but all in all I was pleased."
