During a windy golf tournament held last Friday, April 5 at the Pendleton Country Club, the boys’ golf team from Enterprise placed third among seven full teams that competed and Wallowa/Joseph placed fourth, one stroke behind them.

On the girls’ side, EHS placed second from among four full teams.

Heppner won the boys’ meet with a total score of 380 strokes and Nixyaawii placed second with 392 strokes. Following them in rapid succession were Enterprise, Wallowa/Joseph, and Grant Union with team tallies of 406, 407, and 408 respectively.

Enterprise junior Cody Hopkins took medalist honors for the tournament, taking 89 strokes to circle the 18-hole, par 72 course.

Another young golfer, Karl Wellens of Wallowa/Joseph, carded a blistering 43 strokes on the back nine, including a birdie on the par 4 16th hole, and paced his team by skirting the course in 93 strokes.

Other male finishers for Enterprise were Jerrod Snook (102), Joseph Harshman (105), Dakota Jenkins (110), and Damon Greenshields (115).

Golfers in addition to Wellens for the Wal/Jos boys, plus their scores, included Pierce Millar (95), Christopher Warnock (106), Alex Coutant (113), and Chaz Murray (123).

Wallowa/Joseph does not field a girls’ golf team this year, and yet the girl golfers from Enterprise registered a team score of 425 strokes, only seven strokes behind girls’ team winner Hermiston.

Jill Morton led the EHS team by breaking the century mark with a score of 99, followed by McKenna Miller (106), Carsen Sajonia (110), Hayley Riggs (110), and Stephanie George (111).

Enterprise’s next match was played after Chieftain deadline yesterday (Tuesday) in La Grande, while the teams from both schools will compete in John Day Friday.
