It was a beautiful day for golf as Chelan hosted the
CTL Golf Championships at Lake Chelan Golf Course. Seven schools were
represented on the boys side and four schools for the girls; four boys teams
and two girls teams had enough players to qualify for team scores.
For the boys, Chelan finished in first place with a 352, Omak second with 362,
Cascade third with 372, and Quincy fourth with 409. Taking medalist honors and
named CTL Player of the Year was Chelan's Parker Nolen (Sr.) with an 80,
followed by Tonasket's Cayden Field with an 81 and Cashmere's Clayton Osburn
with an 83. Others scoring well for Chelan included Elijah Larson in 8th
place with a 90, and Eli Christenson and Elliot Peebles tied for 9th with
91s. The top 20 boys will continue on to play in the Bi-District
Tuesday (May 13th) at Leavenworth, including all 6 of Chelan's
boys, and 5 boys each from Cascade and Omak. After a four-way tie for the
last two positions, a sudden-death playoff was held and Cascade's Alex Woods
and Chelan's Cris Lloyd came out on top.
For the girls, Chelan also came in first place with a 413 with Quincy coming in
second with a 439. Chelan's Casey Jackson was the medalist and named CTL
Player of the Year with an 89; coming in second was Chelan's Quinn Cooper with
a 97. The top 11 girls will continue on to the Bi-Districts, including 4
girls each from Chelan and Quincy and 2 from Okanogan. Chelan's two
freshman made the cut, with Myranda Evans coming in at 6th with a 108 and Ariel
Schwantes just making the cut in 11th place.
The team from Cascade was voted to receive this year's Sportsmanship Award, and
Chelan's coach Kirk Einspahr was
named Coach of the Year for the second year in a row. Chelan's teams took
home both CTL League and District 6 Champions honors.
