With each member of the Enterprise High School boys’ golf team stroking fewer than 100 shots, the Outlaws placed second among ten full teams competing at the Hermiston Bulldog Invitational held last Friday at the Big River Golf Course.

Behind Goldendale, Wash.—which tallied a team total of 351 strokes to circle the 18-hole, par 70 course—EHS reached the clubhouse after taking 368 strokes.

The Wallowa/Joseph co-op team placed eighth with a team total of 457 strokes.

Jerrod Snook and Cody Hopkins paced the EHS unit with identical 88 scores, the same round total carded by Wallowa’s low golfer for the day, Karl Wellens.

Low medalist honors for the Bulldog Invitational went to Kyle Harrison of Heppner who traversed the course in 81 strokes.

Also turning in sub-century rounds for Enterprise and Coach Mike Crawford were Damon Greenshields (94), Cody Irish (98), and Dakota Jenkins (99).

In addition to Wellens, golfers for Coach Marvin Gibbs’ Cougar unit were Salvador Mendez (103), Chaz Murray (125), and Blake Sherod (141).

Boys’ teams competing at Hermiston in order of finish were: 1) Goldendale #1 (351); 2) Enterprise (368); 3) Heppner (369); 4) Grant Union (379); 5) Nixyaawii (382); 6) Pendleton (429); 7) Cove (433); 8) Wallowa (457); 9) Echo (457); 10) Goldendale #2 (482).

Fielding less than full teams in the boys’ competition were Hermiston, Nixyaawii #2, and Pendleton #2.

From five teams represented in girls’ competition, only Heppner, Hermiston, and Pendleton fielded full teams.

Of the 20 girls to compete, Heppner’s Blake Greenup won individual honors by carding 94 strokes, one stroke better than Enterprise’s Jill Morton.

Other EHS girls to compete were McKenna Miller (100) and Hayley Riggs (104).

Heppner won the girls’ team title by taking 407 strokes, well below Hermiston’s score of 476 strokes and the 564 total notched by Pendleton.
