Monday @ the Bi-Dictrict Boy's golf tournament, Camas advanced from 19 teams to the 10 teams playing on Tuesday for the seven-team spots to the 4A state tournament.

Owen Huntington led the team with a two-day total 147. Owen finished the 120-player event with a solid second place finish.

Spring Season Notes

2019 Spring notes:

Pay attention to your schoolwork;  The window for Spring grades is coming up and the team is in the running to win the 4a Boy's Scholarship Golf Award.

The optional Spring season starts on Tuesday, April 23rd with a 4:00 meeting @ Camas Meadows; parents are invited.  I will go over the practices, Tournaments, Bi-District, and State.  After the short meeting we will be playing nine holes starting @ 4:40.  If you are out for a Spring sport @ CHS, you are welcome to join in after your season is over.  Dress code at the course will be in force.

The focus of the Spring season will be to prep the Varsity team for the 4a Boy's Golf Bi-District and State Tournaments. CHS players in good standing from the Fall season that did not qualify for Bi-Districts are welcome to join in.

This year's Spring Season we will be limited to three tee times per night. 12 players

Range tokens will be available only from the coach.

If your qualified for post season play, Camas will pay for your Spring golf. ( Owen, Derek, Caleb, Cameron)   The other players will have two options to pay for their Spring season; 1. Pay the Camas Meadows pro-shop $50 for  Monday-Thursday golf from Tuesday 4-23 to Thursday 5-16; the May 9th Invite fee is covered with the $50.  2. You can pay $12 for each 9 hole round and $20 for the Camas Invite on May 9th.

Because, Matt Cannon will not be available to participate at Bi-Districts, there will be a play off to find a replacement.  Counting rounds on 4-23 thru 4-30 will determine the Wednesday, 5-1  team to Eugene for the Oregon 4a Preview Tournament.  On 4-2 the play off will continue to the 5-9 CHS Invite with the 5th Bi-District player announced after the event.

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.
