Valley Club crowns stroke-play champs

Presidentís Cup

Valley Club womenís stroke play champion Marilyn Celano.

Like the rest of southern Idaho, The Valley Club tangled with the cold and wet weather Saturday but still managed to push through and finish its 2012 President's Cup golf tournament to determine this year's stroke-play champions.

They are Carmen Bradley for the men and Marilyn Celano for the women. About 40 golfers took part in the 36-hole tournament that was plagued Saturday by cold temperatures and eventually hail and snow.

Although the snow accumulated enough to suspend women's play Saturday, more cooperative weather Sunday enabled the golfers to finish their rounds in sunny and more comfortable conditions.

Past club champion Bradley won Men's Championship Flight gross with scores of 79-83 for 162 over runner-up Albert King, 84-83 for 167. Women's winner Celano (83-82 for 165) placed ahead of runner-up Britt Palmedo (88-83 for 171).


Other gross winners in flights were Mike O'Neil and John Ashton, and runner-up golfers in gross were Chris Stephens and Roger Brown. Net winners were Ryan Stavros, Richard Shelton, Tullio Celano and Kristen O'Reilly. Second places in net went to Rico Albright, Jerry Boas, Jerry Mells, Joan O'Neil and Bev Jaeger.

Flight winners in gross and net received engraved pewter tankards in addition to merchandise credits of $130 for gross and net. Runner-up golfers earned $85, gross and net. Here are top scores by flight:
