Laker boys golfers remain in first place
The Lake Oswego boys golf team did just enough to hold off West Linn for another league victory on Monday on their home course at Oswego Lake Country Club.
The Lakers have been remarkably consistent in four tournaments this year with their team scores only ranging from 293 to 297.
Lake Oswego fired a 296 on Monday and it was just enough to top the Lions by three strokes.
Cole Madey led the way for the Lakers as one of just two golfers in the tournament to break 70.
Madey's 69 was good enough for second place, just one stroke behind medalist Zach Foushee from West Linn.
Adam Ruben was next for the Lakers and gave the team a boost with a 73, his best score of the season.
Max Carter was next with a 75 and Riley Elmes shot a 79 to round out the team's scoring.
For Lakeridge, the Pacers posted another solid team score but couldn't quite top Clackamas again for fourth place.
Jake Reiff shot the low score for Lakeridge with an 82 but there was very little separation within the team.
David Zhou shout an 83, Casey Sherrill shot an 84 and Cade Lawson carded an 85 for a team score of 334.
Lake Oswego remains firmly in first place in the league with two league tournaments remaining before districts. The teams will play at Willamette Valley Country Club next week.
For the girls, Lake Oswego finished with its best team score of the year on Monday at Willamette Valley Country Club.
The Lakers finished in second-place again with a score of 390.
Nearly everyone on the team turned in her best round of the season.
Alexa Huewe carded an 82 which was the fifth-best individual score of the tournament.
Stephanie Bell was close behind with an 89, cracking 90 for the first time, while Jessica Lee shot a 93.
Courtney Simich and Alexa Moiso each shot 106.
For Lakeridge, Connie Zhou took third individually with another solid round of 75 while Hana Campbell fired a 90.
Campbell had her best round of the year last week at Langdon Farms where she shot 88 and Zhou shot 76.
Lake Oswego took second place in that event as well with Huewe leading the way with an 89.
Next week the girls will play at Oregon Golf Club.
