Scappoose girls' golf will follow school record state finish
Indians return from seventh at Class 4A/3A/2A/1A state
After the Indians' best-ever 394-405799 earned seventh at the Class 4A/3A/2A/1A Girls' Golf State Championships at the Eagle Crest Ridge Golf Course in Redmond, expectations are through the roof.
"We're anticipating an exciting season with 10 players," Scappoose coach Joe Girres said. "I believe our varsity team will be well-rounded, led by Isabel Jory and Morgan Hall. I believe we could be near the top of the league and position ourselves nicely for state."
Outbound seniors Syrina Revis (tied for 14th at a school record 93-93186) and Baylee Maloney (t-34, 102-102204) led the Indians at state, and Jory (t-34th, 101-103204) and Hall (36th, 98-107205) were right behind.
Jory, Macy Gray and Bailee Magnuson return with leadership.
"With all the rain and saturated fairways it's been hard to get on the course," Girres said. "We need to work on playing competitively in a match format to simulate tournaments and league play, but as for the immediate progress we need to work on our consistency with timing, tempo, rhythm and balance with our swings."
This year's state tournament is set for May 16-17 at Eagle Crest.
Henley broke Molalla's five-year state championship streak last season.
Scappoose has never won a team or individual state title.
