The young Raider golf team is showing great improvement as the late season run begins, the coach said.

The team competed at Moses Point April 20 and at Banks Lake Golf Course on Thursday.

At Banks Lake, about 30 players attended from high schools in Oroville, Warden, Riverside Christian and Lake Roosevelt.

"I'm proud of our team's effort and competitive spirit so far this season," Head Coach Steve Files said. "We're gaining invaluable experience with each match." "Darin Whiteman, in only his second match, took fifth at Moses Pointe against very tough competition," Files noted. "Lucas Bird shot a personal best at Moses Pointe, including a stellar 45 on the back nine."

When asked about what is important down the stretch Files said, "All of our players are getting more comfortable with tournament conditions, we're always looking for ways to improve and shave strokes off our scores."
