SELAH - Sophomore Robert Lemos was the first Grandview golfer to shoot a sub-100 round this season, that coming yesterday during a four-school CWAC match at Selah's Yakima Elks Country Club.
Lemos, a first-year golfer, opened with a 53 on the front nine. Although his opening nine score wasn't all that impressive, he did have a momentous highlight by notching a birdie on the par-5 ninth hole.
"Robert is using a new driver, and he was able to get on the green in two on No. 9," said GHS Coach Dave Ugetti. A two-putt gave Lemos the memorable bird.
Lemos, perhaps sparked by the tweeter on No. 9, closed out his round with a 45 on the back side, giving him a 98 for his 18 holes of play.
Grandview finished last in the team scoring race Tuesday afternoon, shooting an aggregate 473, but to the Greyhounds' credit, it was their lowest team score of the season.
"We're definitely improving," said Ugetti.
Also competing for GHS yesterday were Dylan Parker (53-63-116), Justin Murbach (64-62-126) and Sean Charvet (66-67-133).
Tuesday's medalist was Kyle Yates of Selah, who carded an 8-over-par 79. The Vikings won low team honors with a score of 339.
Ellensburg, behind the round of 81 notched by Carl Bender, finished second with a 369. Quincy was third with a team score of 385.
The Grandview linksters are scheduled to play at Ephrata's golf course this coming Thursday.
