Scappoose boys' golf second at Astoria Invite
Kercher/Bliss lead Indians with 72 points in modified Stableford tournament
Andrew Kercher and Liam Bliss' 72 points led Scappoose (143 points) to second in the six-team Astoria Invitational on Monday at the Astoria Country Club.
Twice-defending Class 4A state champion Seaside won the tournament with 160 points.
Each school formed three two-man teams, of which the best ball of the two determined the team's score, and the two best team scores became each school's score.
Colton Bush and Jake Gray came up with 71 points, and AJ Miltich and Nathan Mapes finished with 66 points.
"[We] had a couple of good individual performances today, but we have to continue to work hard as a team and lower our scores if we are going to compete at the end of the season," Indians coach Steve Hagen said. "The boys can do it if we put in the effort."
Scappoose is scheduled to face Banks at 2 p.m. on Thursday at Wildwood Golf Course in Portland.
