St. Helens golfers take third twice
St. Helens scores their lowest away score in many years
The St. Helens Lions golf team turned in their best score off their home course in several years to take a solid third at the Resort at the Mountain on Monday.
The team shot a collective (top four) 325 to beat Parkrose by 21 strokes, but were still behind Wilsonville and Sherwood.
We capped the match with a stupendous back nine, which broke us away from the four teams behind, coach Dave Lawrence said. The third-place finish puts us solidly in third (overall) in the standings going into district Monday and Tuesday at The Reserve.
The Lions had two players under 80Nathan Hunter with a 78 and Eric Aldridge with a 79.
The St. Helens Jayvees also had a good day, finishing second in the jayvee district with a 376.
St. Helens came from behind, passing Milwaukie, Parkrose and Liberty in the last seven holes to take third at a NWOC match at Langdon Farms on April 23.
Nathan Hunters strong first nine earned a tie for sixth overall. Cody Teyemas steady 82 carried us to a third place finish as a team, Lawrence said. Jacob Roxey also found the mental toughness to battle through some rough spells and make some key pars.
District looms this coming Monday and Tuesday at The Reserve.
