Strade leads St. Helens girls' golf in Northwest Oregon Conference meet at Forest Hills

Peyton Strade finishes with 22 points, Lauren Clark with 13 points, Emmi Paullus with 12 points


    -      Lions sophomore Peyton Strade's 14-8--22 Stableford score led St. Helens at the second Northwest Oregon Conference meet on Tuesday at Forest Hills Golf Course in Cornelius.

Lauren Clark (9-4--13 and Emmi Paullus (5-7--12) followed for St. Helens, which did not register a complete team score.

Northwest Oregon Conference meets reward players with four points for par, five points for a birdie, three points for a bogey, two points for a double bogey and one point for a triple bogey.

"I expected our scores to go down from week one because [Greenlea Golf Course in Boring] is a much shorter course compared to Forest Hills, which has some long and difficult par 4s and 5s," Lions coach Jared Phillips said. "Peyton led us again and is improving her game every day. She had her first two pars of the year, one on a par-4 and one on a par-3, so there is definitely improvement in her game. We're losing a lot of strokes in the short game and will definitely be working hard as a team to improve in that area."

Wilsonville won the meet with 204 points ahead of Liberty (120 points).

Wildcats junior Kaitlyn Howe led all individuals with 64 points, Parkrose sophomore Shelbie Dunn (52 points) was second and Wilsonville junior Jessica Berry (51 points) was third.

Howe is first in the conference through two meets, Dunn is second and Berry is third.

The third conference meet is scheduled for noon on Tuesday at Stone Creek Golf Club in Oregon City.
