Golfers off and swinging
Raider golfers had their first contest last week at home against the Omak Pioneers boys’ squad.
Omak did not bring their girls’ team as they had other engagements going on at the same time.
Raider Head Coach Steve Files liked the way the boys’ team performed in the season opener. “It was a good first match,” he said. “We’re off and running in 2013.”
Austin Rosenbaum led the Raiders, shooting a 50 over nine holes.
“Austin Rosenbaum competed well against one of the top players in the state,” Files said. “He was the only player to card a birdie for the round, which he did on the par 3 sixth hole, 199 yards.”
Junior Brandon Desautel shot a 65 for the day, and first-year golfer Alex Garcia shot a 76 in his first competitive outing.
This week, the Raider girls had a chance to compete at Desert Canyon Golf Course last night against Oroville.
LR Golf will take spring break off from competition and will return to action April 9 at Oroville.
