The Lake Roosevelt golf team had a busy week, playing on a windy day at Banks Lake Golf Course, then playing in better weather at Sage Hills Golf Course in Warden, followed by the Okanogan Valley course in Omak.

The Raiders were joined at home by golfers from Warden and Oroville March 26 to play nine holes. The LR team finished with a score of 204, ahead of Warden's 229. Oroville did not have a team score.

"The wind was a huge factor, definitely," said Head Coach Steve Files. "Steady 18 mph. Scores were up, but the kids kept their heads down and didn't complain too much."

Darin Whiteman had the best score for the day, with 43 strokes over the nine holes.

In Warden on March 28, the Raiders played nine holes alongside golfers from Warden and Ephrata.

Darin Whiteman once again was top performer, finishing nine holes in only 37 strokes.

"Darin's got a genuine passion for the game and he plays all the time," Files said. "Like most top athletes, he's very competitive and confident in his ability to handle tough situations and execute the shot that's required. Darin is right up there with the top golfers at our level in terms of driving distance, but he's also very adept and imaginative around the greens."

No scores were available for the Okanogan Valley match with Omak.

Now on spring break, the golfers will wait until April 10 to compete at the Desert Canyon golf course in Orondo, joined by golfers from Oroville and Riverside Christian, teeing off at 2:30 p.m.
