Team finds it hard to score on difficult golf course
The Lions lacked some of the experience needed at the Chehalem Glenn golf course on Monday, and finished fourth overall this week.
Chehalem Glenn is a beautiful, well-maintained, yet extremely difficult golf course, St. Helens coach Dave Lawrence said. Knowledge of the course and where to play your next shot from is very important. Sherwood practices there three times per week and Wilsonville and Liberty are close enough to practice there regularly.
Lawrence said that although the team struck the ball well, they kept finding themselves in poor positions to score and move up in the standings.
The team still competed in the match and Lawrence thinks they will bounce back at Langdon Farms this coming week. Wilsonville hosts that match.
St. Helens results:
Team scores: Sherwood 318, Wilsonville 332, Liberty 349, St. Helens 365, Parkrose 376, Milwaukie 383, Sandy 396.
St. Helens individuals: Nathan Hunter (46-43) 89; Toby Carlson (44-46) 90; Eric Aldridge (46-45) 91; Cody Teyema (45-50) 95; Michael Hewlett (48-49) 97.
