Grandview High School's boys and girls golf teams both notched a third-place finish yesterday at separate four-school matches held at different venues.
The GHS girls, playing at their home Black Rock Creek Golf Course Tuesday afternoon, tallied a team score of 519. Neira Jimenez paced the Lady 'Hounds to the third-place finish by shooting a team-low, 18-hole round of 112.
Othello's girls won top honors Tuesday by tallying a team score of 405. Mikayla Parris, who came away with medalist honors, was the lone golfer at Black Rock Creek yesterday to shoot a sub-100 round. She carded a 97. The Huskies also got individual rounds of 101, 103 and 104 from the likes of Elle Parris, Ivone Garza and Kyle Kummer, respectively.
Toppenish's girls claimed second-place honors in the team scoring race with an aggregate 481. The Wildcats were led by Marisol Avila and Victoria Sanchez with rounds of 111 and 116, respectively.
The third-place finishing Lady Greyhounds, besides the round of 112 notched by Jimenez, received performances of 133 by Hannah Pond, 134 by Reagan Colson and 140 by Teagan Parrish.
Bringing up the rear in girls play yesterday was Wapato with a team score of 549. Annie Milne had the low round for the Wolfpack, shooting a 125. No other Wapato golfer scored below 140.
In CWAC boys action at Toppenish's Mt. Adams Country Club, Othello got duplicate 6-over-par rounds of 78 from Trevor Salisbury and Tyler Amoruso. The Huskies won top honors with a team-low score of 347.
The host Wildcats were second with a team tally of 416.
Grandview's boys, behind Matt Dailey's bogey-performance round of 90, placed third with a team total of 422.
"It's the lowest team score we've had the last two seasons," said GHS Coach Dave Uggetti, explaining the previous low team score this spring was a 469.
"We're moving in the right direction," he said.
Uggetti said he was pleased with Dailey's performance Tuesday afternoon, considering the teen's front and back nine scores of 47-43 proved to be a personal best for 18 holes of play.
Also turning in a personal best for Grandview yesterday was Adam Fleming, who shot a 121 on front and back side scores of 62-59.
Justin Murbach and Dylan Parker added rounds of 105 and 106, respectively, for the Greyhounds. Parker's round, too, was a PR for the Grandview linkster.
Murbach's round, said Uggetti, could have been much better, but he absorbed penalty strokes for three OB shots. To his credit, said Uggetti, Murbach closed out the front nine with four consecutive pars.
Wapato brought up the rear in the team scoring at Mt. Adams because the Wolfpack could not field a complete four-person team.
Both, Grandview's boys and girls golf squads are scheduled to play a non-league match at Black Rock Creek Golf Course this coming Friday. Tee time is slated for 1:30 p.m.
