Raider golf enters the last week of the regular season in high spirits after a strong showing at the home match last Thursday.

Austin Rosenbaum finished third in the boys’ competition with the score of 99 on 18 holes.

Rosenbaum was behind Connor Hughes of Oroville, who shot an 88, and Cayden Field of Tonasket, who shot a 97.

Tanecia Stanczak took first in the girls’ competition, shooting a 95 on 18 holes. Stanczak’s closest opponent was Jordyn Smith of Oroville, who shot a 112.

Head Coach Steve Files likes the position his team is in right now.

“The mood of the team is very upbeat,” he said. “Our players are maintaining a positive attitude out there on the course and have responded well to adversity.”

Jordan Allen and Brandon Desautel posted their best scores of the season, and Files noted it was the first time Madisyn Byam and Akaycia Foster completed 18 holes this year. “I’m extremely proud of how far those athletes have progressed,” he said.
