June 25th on the course practice/match

Tonight, Camas had a good showing in our last scheduled practice for the Summer season with 14 incoming and returning players playing the front 9 @ Camas Meadows.

In the match against Prairie, Braden Taylor was the medalist with a solid 37. Cale Shira @ 43, Cameron Miller @ 48, and Bryan Hansel @ 49 rounded out the team score of 177 beating  a shorthanded Prairie team by 20 strokes.

The rest of the scoring: Matt Cannon 50, Carter Koranda 54, Preston Bee 48, Nate Adams 58, Leo Cassel 45, Landon Dunn 51, Easton Rheaume 48, and Demitri Derhalli 51.  Liam Wright and Carson Kvistad both had some good shots and putted well playing in the final group.

With this event culminating a short Summer season everyone has a good idea what will be needed to have the best shot in the August tryouts.

As a coach, I am impressed with the enthusiasm and golf skills of the returning and incoming players.  

Looking forward to the Fall season, Coach Givens

2018 Fall Season

Camas Meadows will be our home course.  This coming years  team will consist of 12-16 players.  The team will be selected with a meld of tri-out scores, grades, team chemistry, and the ability to make good choices.

Post season will have a new look this year.  WIAA has changed the state tournament to a team plus individual format.  With this new format District 4 will be sending one team of five and four individuals to State. At this point Bi-District has not been decided.

The schedule for next season is not out yet, but Camas has not been invited to the Titan Cup.  I am looking @ a different event to take its place.

Owen placing 5th @ the State Tournament was a great experience.  With next years State changes to a team plus individual players format, it is within reach to take a 5 player team from CHS.
