At the John Day Golf Invite on Friday afternoon, the Enterprise High boys came in second place, and individually, junior Nick Jannuzzi finished the course as the No. 2 ranked golfer. He shot an 83.

Seven teams competed at the course, and Burns scored a 347 to take the event's crown. Enterprise was four strokes off the leaders, and third-place Nyssa had a 397.

"Now we've seen all of our competition, except for Vale, and when all of us are in one event, we should be the team to beat," Enterprise coach Mike Crawford said.

In addition to Jannuzzi's strong day, two other Outlaws broke 90. Senior Chad Conrad shot an 86, and sophomore Tyler Warner had an 89. Together they made a strong performance, even without the usual top players like senior Andrew Kelly, junior Marcus Anderson and sophomore Dakota Hull.

"We finished four shots back, and looking back, those were four shots that we could've made up for," Crawford said. "But considering all of the new guys, we actually increased our depth."

Junior Lucas Stangel's 93, senior Matt Exon's 94 and freshman Seth Jannuzzi's 97 rounded out the boys' scoring.

Meanwhile, in girls' competition, Enterprise sophomore Heather Bruce has made a routine out of first-place finishes. On Friday, she took home her fourth medal, finishing first with an 87.

Teammate junior Miranda McCarthy shot a 134.

On Tuesday, the Enterprise girls were at the La Grande Invitational, but the event was scheduled too late to be included in this edition of The Chieftain.

The Outlaws boys and girls will next play on Friday at the 2A Invitational, held at the Wildhorse Resort and Casino in Pendleton.
