>Matt York fires a personal record 82 to pace CowboysThe Crook County High School boys' golf team finished seventh at the nine-team Summit golf tournament on Thursday.
The tournament, which was originally scheduled to be played at Broken Top, was moved to River's Edge Golf Course because of course conditions.
Bend shot a 317 to win the tournament followed closely by Summit with a 321. Sisters finished third with a 332 followed by Hermiston (346), McKenzie (350), The Dalles/Wahtonka (357), Crook County (363), Madras (382), and Mountain View (386).
Matt York had the low round for the Cowboys, shooting a personal record 82.
"York did a great job," said Head Coach Chuck Wilcox. "He PR'd, and he had an eight on the ninth hole. He was really good today. He should have broken 80 easily but he just had one bad hole."
Bend senior Andrew Vijarro had the low round of the day, firing a 71 to take medalist honors while Derek Stamos, also of Bend finished second shooting 73.
Jake Shinkle finished second for the Cowboys shooting a 91, while Caleb Henry and Daniel Teater each shot 95, and Jared George fired a 96.
"It's a tough course," said Wilcox. "It was pretty tight and the course wasn't in very good shape and we did OK. All in all it was not bad."
On Saturday the Crook County High School golf teams host the 12th annual Crook County High School Benefit Golf Tournament fundraiser at Meadow Lakes Golf Course. The tournament begins at 12 with a four-person scramble format with handicaps. According to Wilcox, the tournament is full with 36 or 37 complete teams in the field.
The team plays in the Seaside Invitational on Monday, then returns home for their lone home tournament of the season on Thursday, May 1, at Meadow Lakes Golf Course.
