Scappoose girls' golf best-ever third at Class 4A/3A/2A/1A state championships
Indians improve on last year's seventh-place 394-405799 with a 405-389794
The Indians are better than ever.
After pulling off a school-record 394-405799 for seventh at last years state meet at Eagle Crest Golf Course in Redmond, Scappoose came away with a 405-389794 on the very same course on Tuesday.
It was a rough first day but we picked it up, said Morgan Hall, the sophomore Cowapa League medalist who led her side with a 90-91181 for 13th at state.
Isabel Jorys 101-90191 was good for 18th, Bailee Magnuson tied Kaitlyn Bakkensen for 29th with a 105-110215 and Macy Gray was 34th with a 123-102225.
We stayed ahead of [last years state runner-up] Heppner for third, said Gray, a senior who graduates with Jory and Magnuson. All the girls get along really well, and I think they will still be really good next year. [Joe Girres] is a good coach.
The Indians won all six Cowapa League meets, claimed their third Cowapa League championship in a row and were the Region 1 runner-up to Crook County.
Girres really helped us improve this year, Jory said. Our mentality is good.
Scappoose, though yet to win a state team or individual title, made the cut for the fourth year in a row after tying for 11th in 2014, taking 11th in 2013 and coming up 12th in 2012.
Region 4 medalist and St. Marys (Medford) sophomore Kamryn Ford (74-79153) won the Crusaders first individual title. Her junior teammate Staesha Flock (78-79157) and La Grande junior Trinity McCarthy (81-80161) followed.
St. Marys (338-336674), which also won the Region 4 team crown, led after day one and claimed its second state championship, its first since 2009.
Crook County (374-373747) was a distant second.
Defending champion Henley, which broke Molallas five-year title streak, did not qualify for the tournament.
