EAST WENATCHEE - Nathan Meyer and Chandler Luther of Sunnyside closed out Columbia Basin Big Nine League play this past Monday by carding rounds of 92 and 94, respectively.
Monday's CBBN boys golf match, staged at the par-72 Rock Island course near East Wenatchee, was the fifth and final conference competition of the spring for the eight 3A schools in the CBBN. Meyer and Luther's rounds on Monday kept them inside the cut line of advancing to District. The top 36 golfers, based on a points system throughout the five league matches, get to move on to postseason play.
Meyer toured the Rock Island course with a team-low 92 on front and back nine scores of 43-49.
His Sunnyside teammates, Luther and freshman Ian Heffron, finished two shots back with identical 94's. The pair each went 45-49 on the two nines.
Sophomore James Voorhies rounded out the Grizzly team score Monday afternoon by posting a 110. He got around the front side with a 52, but ballooned to a 58 after the clubhouse turn.
Sunnyside's team score of 390 placed the Grizzlies last in the eight-school field. The Southridge Suns, behind medalist Nick Mandell's 1-under-par 71, tallied a 313 for top honors at the league match. Hanford finished four shots back for runner-up honors.
Meyer and Luther will now move on to the District tournament, scheduled for Monday, May 14, at Kennewick's Canyon Lakes Golf Course. The rest of the Sunnyside boys golf team has to call it quits until next spring.
