Districts Day Two

At the end of day two @ the 4a District Golf Tournament the team of Owen Huntington, Derek Harker, Matthew Cannon, Caleb Shira, and Cameron Miller finished tied for third with the 4a league champions from Union.  After two days of close play the District Tournament went to Skyview @ 665, Battle Ground came in second @ 669, and Camas and Union both @ 670 finished tied for third.

In a sudden death playoff for the last spot to the Bi-District Tournament, Camas was down early but with the clutch play of Owen Huntington and Derek Harker Camas squared the first play-off hole.  The second play off hole was put away early with Caleb Shira and Matthew Cannon going 2 up; Owen and Derek sealed the deal with a pair of pars.

Season ending notes

Parents and players,  A couple of quick notes:

First off, it is always sad when I have to bring the team down to a final number of players as we approach the District Tournament.  It was tough stopping the JV season, but being the  only  coach for both the Varsity and JV, this last week was needed to focus on the narrowing process for this years District team.  With so many young players, selecting this years District team was difficult at best:  Owen, Derek, Matthew, Caleb, Cameron, and Bryan are the 6 players that I have chosen to represent CHS in this years District golf tournament.  


Second,  I have placed the ballots for the team awards in the Athletics office and I would like all of this years players pick one up and vote. This same ballot is also available on the team's website.  You can either place the ballot in my coaching box in the Athletics Office or email me your picks. 


Third,  This years season ending banquet will be on Tuesday, Oct. 23rd at the home of Vince and Mia Miller.   I will send out another email next week with the evenings agenda.  Dessert is always a good theme.  Special thanks to the Millers for once again offering to host.


Fourth, I will keep the team posted with the daily results from Districts.

Prairie Invite Update + update #2 + results

The varsity team will not be playing in the Prairie Invite this year.  The problem is that by playing in both the Prairie Invite and the 3a-4a cross over tournament the maximum match count of 12 will be reached in the Fall.   With that in mind, one had to go to keep to 11 Fall matches and saving the last match for the Spring CHS Invite.

We will still be taking two JV teams plus two extra players. Leaving CHS @ 6:45 on Wednesday. returning to CHS @ 3:00. 10 players.

Tomorrow's Prairie Invite will be a JV event for the CHS Boy's golf team.  We will be taking JV 10 players:  Eric, Nate, Preston, Demitri, Carter, Easton, Grant, Bryan, Leo, & Cameron.   The team will meet @ the tennis courts @ CHS @ 6:30 leaving @ 6:45.  We should be back @ CHS around 3:00.   Wear white shirts if you have one if not red.  Black pants or shorts.  White hats.   Lunch will be provided.  Bring a water bottle and plenty of snacks.       This is an 18 hole  event and if you have one bring a push cart.
