Wolverines bag third team title

Trip to state on the line today

The Wood River golf team put the finishing touches on the regular season with a first-place finish at The Valley Club Tuesday.

Playing without #2 golfer Scott Sanders (school-related test), the Wolverines parlayed a four-man 343 into a first place finish in a field of five. It is the third time the Wolverines won a meet this season.

Hailey defeated runner-up and district rival Filer by 10 strokes. Wendell was third with a 362. Oakley (392) finished fourth and Gooding (395) fifth.

Wood River’s Tate Mills and Jesse Theide tied with Kevin Oden of Wendell for first place. All three carded 83’s on the par 72 course.

"For Jesse, a freshman, to shoot an 83, that is just an awesome score," coach John Braafladt said.

The wins marked the fifth time (out of six starts) the medalist has been a Wolverine.

Alex Bliss came in sixth with an 86. Brady Bever shot 91 and Cooper McCroskey 93.

The Wolverine girls bested Gooding 472-480 to take the team title.

Wendell’s Jessie Lancaster shot a stellar 87 to claim the individual title. Britt Van Paepeghem was fourth overall at 108. Rachel Pace hit 119, Lisa Feldhusen 121, and Adrianna Maniere 124.

The 3A-district tournament is at 9:30 a.m. today at Burley Municipal Golf Course. Wood River, Buhl, Kimberly, Filer, Gooding and Declo will compete.

According to Braafladt the top two teams and top six individuals will qualify for the 3A-state tournament, May 17-18. Another way to earn a trip to Coeur d’Alene is for the team to shoot a combined 325 or lower. "We have a great chance for individual girls and boys to qualify and a great chance for the boys team-wise," Braafladt said.
