Golf looks for state berths
Raider golf closed the regular season May 13 at home against Moses Lake Christian and Columbia Basin Secondary.
Austin Rosenbaum posted his best score of the season, shooting an 89 over 18 holes to be the boys’ medalist. Madisyn Byam was a close second in girls competition to Isabella Murrell of MLCA with a score of 111.
Head Coach Steve Files praised both golfers. “Austin Rosenbaum and Madisyn Byam shot their low rounds of the season,” he said.
Brandon Desautel came in second for the Raiders, completing the course in 99 strokes. Kyle Holt finished in 111. Alex Garcia shot a 118 for the day. Mikel Friedlander finished 17 strokes behind Byam for a final score of 128.
LR golfers travelled last night to Lake Chelan Golf Course to compete in the District 5-6 B golf tournament. If any of the Raider boys placed in the top five and girls in the top six, they will move on to the state B golf competition at Oakbrook Golf Club in Lakewood, Wash. May 28-29. Coach Files was confident about the chances for success at districts last week. “Our boys’ team should have a legitimate shot at the team title if we play well,” he said. “The squad is excited for the challenge!”
