TOPPENISH - Junior Josh Jardine, one of only two linksters currently eligible to play for the Grandview High School boys golf team, earned co-medalist honors Monday afternoon at the Greyhounds' CWAC league opener.
Staged at Toppenish's Mt. Adams Country Club, the match included the host Wapato Wolfpack and the Toppenish Wildcats.
Jardine skated around the par-72 course with a 15-over-par 87, tying Wapato's Greg Klutts for low individual honors.
The Grandview junior, shooting a 44 on the front side and lowering his back nine score to 43, picked up five pars on the day.
The workman-like round, said Grandview Coach Dave Uggetti, was made possible in part because Jardine didn't push any of his shots out-of-bounds. "He kept everything in play...not like at Othello last Friday when he had three OB's," said Uggetti.
Grandview's one other golfer at the CWAC match Monday afternoon was senior Tim Broadie. He shot nearly identical front and back side scores of 64-63 for an overall round of 127.
The Greyhounds and Toppenish were in the same boat yesterday, as both clubs had just two golfers at the ready. Thus, both teams took an incomplete in the team scoring. Wapato, with the bare minimum of four golfers, officially won the CWAC match with a team score of 459.
Grandview is scheduled to send its two golfers to the Lee Dolquist Invitational at Yakima's Apple Tree Golf Course this coming Thursday, then will host an invite of their own the following day at Sunnyside's Black Rock Creek Golf Course.
