DW COMBINE-DW Golf traveled to Richland on April 13 for a match at Columbia Point. On the 18-hole par 72 course, Carson Potter led the Wolfpack boys with a score of 104. William shot a 125. In the girls' match, Abbi Paolino shot 129, and Sarah Daves shot 140. Competitors included golfers from WWVA, Cle Elum-Roslyn, and Highland School Schools.
Coach McGhan said it was the first time his inexperienced team had ever played an 18-hole round. It was also the first round played in the sunshine this season. He recognized Potter's exceptional play, scoring a ten over par on the front nine, and W. Daves posted his best round of the season. Paolino shot a consistent round and showed her potential, and S. Daves continues to improve, especially in her short game. Overall, the team held its own and played well.
Golfing at Pomeroy with teams from St. John, Tekoa-Oaksdale, and Liberty Christian on Saturday, April 15, the Wolfpack had a bit of a letdown compared to the previous match on Thursday, said McGhan. He noted Pomeroy is a challenging course, especially if you are unfamiliar with its ups and down nature.
On the 18-hole par 62 course, Potter had a birdie on number 9; his first ever, and Paolino recorded her first par on number 8. Potter led the team with a score of 107, Paolino shot 112, S. Daves scored 116, and W. Daves shot 139.
