Golf teams hitting their stride
The scores keep dropping for the Lake Oswego boys golf team. The Lakers had an outstanding showing at Rose City Golf Course on Tuesday, firing one-under-par as a team with a score of 287.
It was the team's best showing of the season and good enough to hold off a strong showing from West Linn as well for its fourth straight tournament victory.
But the Lakers were also able to do something they hadn't done in four league tournaments. They won individual medalist honors.
Max Carter edged out West Linn's Zach Foushee with a terrific round of 67.
Clayton Madey was close behind with a score of 71.
Adam Ruben was solid again, shooting a 74 and Jackson Kitzinger rounded out the scoring with a 75.
Lake Oswego took another step toward winning the league title this season and holds a 10-point advantage with two tournaments remaining before districts.
Lakeridge shot a 336 for the tournament led by Cody Benko's best round of the year. Benko shot 72 for the Pacers.
David Zhou shot an 83 to finish second for Lakeridge.
In the girls tournament, Lakeridge had its best showing of the season, shooting a 371 and finishing in third place.
Connie Zhou tied for the second lowest score of the tournament with a 76. Anna Dooley and Hana Campbell each broke 100 to key the Pacers and Grace Fix had her best round of the season.
Lakeridge finished just four strokes better than Lake Oswego for third place.
Kelsey Moede led the Lakers with her best round of the season, firing an 83.
Danica Gazzigli also shot her best round coming in with a 94.
Next week the girls will play at Oregon Golf Club and the boys will play at Willamette Valley Country Club.
