Even with their No. 1 golfer absent - playing at a special tournament in Arizona for potential NCAA Division I recruits - the Ephrata Tigers were clearly unbeatable at a four-school CWAC boys golf match yesterday, staged at Black Rock Creek Golf Course.
Ephrata, behind three 6-over-par 78s carded by Brian Heer, Josh Johnson and Zach Dwyer, posted the low team score of 316.
Prosser, which got a team low 82 from Taylor Gant, finished second with an aggregate score of 372.
The Othello Huskies, who were tied for the CWAC league lead prior to Thursday's match, had a rough outing and settled for third-place honors with a team score of 412.
Grandview, missing a couple of its regular starters, tallied a 444.
Grandview was paced by Justin Murbach's 18-hole round of 101. He never caught fire on the front nine and absorbed a 53, but shaved five strokes off that total with a 48 after the clubhouse turn.
Dylan Parker was second in for the Greyhounds, shooting a 111 on consistent nines of 55-56.
Sean Charvet posted a season low round of 108 for the 'Hounds. He went 53-55 on the front and back sides, respectively.
Henry Pond, relatively new to the game of golf, rounded out the scoring for Grandview with a 124 (57-67).
The 'Hounds are scheduled to compete at another CWAC match in Othello next Monday, then will participate in the annual Suncadia Invitational near Roslyn the following day.
