Laker and Pacer individuals also qualify for state

by: VERN UYETAKE - Lake Oswego's Brock Anderson had two of his best rounds of the season at last week's district golf tournament at Stone Creek. Anderson shot 73 on both days to take fourth place individually.Lake Oswego's boys golf team had a strange thing happen at the district meet last week at Stone Creek in Oregon City. It was tested.

The Lakers went home after the opening day of competition tied with West Linn with both teams shooting rounds of 294, the lowest mark posted by the Lions this year.

That round from West Linn was bolstered by a sterling 65 from its top player CJ Sitton, which gave him a six-stroke lead.

But as conditions continued to be difficult on the second day of competition with all teams battling through heavy rain at times, the Lakers were resilient, lowering their team score with a 292 to win by 13 strokes.

Cole Madey also made a run at the individual title, getting within striking distance when Sitton had a four-putt on the 17th green. However, Sitton would birdie 18 to clinch the win.

Madey would be his team's low scorer of the tournament, carding a pair of 71s and finishing in a tie for second individually.

He was followed by Brock Anderson, who should his two lowest rounds of the season, carding 73s on each day.

Alex Wrenn and Riley Elmes finished tied with each other, shooting two-day totals of 149. Spencer McLaughlin wasn't far off the pace either with a 77 on the first day followed by a 76.

Two Pacers also earned a trip to state with strong showings. Jake Reiff qualified again, shooting one of the lowest rounds of the second day with a 73 for a two-day total of 151.

Cade Lawson will also head to state after he posted his lowest score of the season on the opening day with a 72 and followed with an 82.

As a team, Lakeridge finished in a solid third place at the tournament with team scores of 317 and 319.

Timothy Lee was consistent over the 36-hole event, shooting rounds of 80 and 81 while Vincent Chia carded an 83 on the second day of competition.

In the girls event, two Lakers and one Pacer qualified for state as individuals.

Cami Dozois continued her terrific season with two very strong scores of 81 and 79. That was good enough for fifth place individually.

Her teammate, Jessica Lee, followed a tough opening day with an 85 on the second day, shattering her previous best round of the year to earn a state berth.

For Lakeridge, Sonya Swanson shot her second-best round of the year on Day One with a 91 and followed it with a 97 to crack the top-10 individually.

State will be held next Monday and Tuesday with the boys playing at Quail Valley in Banks and the girls playing at Emerald Valley in Eugene.
