Wood River golf title won by Hailey boys

Tuesday tour at The Valley Club

Tuesday's cool temperatures and wind didn't stop Wood River High School and Community School golfers from breaking out the sticks.

In fact, Wood River golf coach Bill Petzke looked on the positive side. He said, "Chilly, no rain, breezy—a good day for spring golf."

And it was a good day for the Wolverine boys, who won the seven-school Wood River Invitational at The Valley Club by a 12-shot margin over their chief rival, Twin Falls.

Three Wolverines cracked 80 on their home course—Jonathan Hobbs 77, Crockett Stearns 78 and Chance McCroskey 78. Davis Hague came home with an 83. Adding together those four 18-hole rounds gave Wood River 316 shots. Twin Falls had 328 and third-place Canyon Ridge 340 with four in the 80s.

Individual medalist was Fuzzy Frank of Twin Falls with a 75. The other Wood River golfer was Ricky Jeneson with a 114. In all, there were 35 boys and 23 girls taking tours.

Although there were girls from seven schools, only three had complete four-golfer teams, including second-place Wood River with Jennie Williams 101, Kelly Chapman 128, Maddie Kate Currie 131 and Nicole Gillette 135 for 495 points.

Twin Falls, led by individual medalist Katherine Reed (83), won the girls' team title with 353 ahead of Wood River. Burley (504) was third.

Wood River now heads to the state-qualifying Great Basin Conference 18-hole tour Tuesday, May 11 at Rupert Country Club. Thursday's scheduled rounds of golf at Rupert were canceled by snow.

Cutthroats play at Gooding

Coach Noah Loyd's Community School golfers also tuned up for their district meet Tuesday, playing 18 holes at Gooding Golf Course. The 3A district meet is Monday, May 10 at 10 a.m. at Buhl's Clear Lakes CC.

At Gooding, the Castleford boys (348), led by medalist Nick Howard (80), won team honors.

The Cutthroats were fifth of five teams with 478 shots led by Anthony Martin 103, Brett Cherry 104, Rocket Stickney 118, Colton Sholtis 153 and Cameron Jenner 157.

Placing second among the girls was Hannah Robideaux of Sun Valley with 116, just six strokes off the pace of Gooding's Angela Vitek (110).
