Dolores golfers finish second in Shiprock Tournament


Tipka and the Dragons go to their first meet at their new season-opener, a non-conference invite, scheduled for Tuesday, April 17, at Shamrock Golf Course.

Andrew Christiansen is the only senior, and he posted the low scoring average on the team last season, coming in a 78.85 strokes per 19 holes.

And though he dropped down the list as the weekend wore on, the Abbotsford native - who lists South Surrey's Morgan Creek Golf Course as his home track - still finished 24th, a dozen spots higher than he did previous year, in his first-ever appearance at the tournament, which is one of golf's four "majors".

After the team returned to Palestine from the tournament, Dear reported, the boys wanted to play another 18 holes at Wildcat Golf Course - so that's an encouraging sign. Juniors Austin Bishop and Kyle McAbee each shot 77s in their first round, as did senior Samuel Shih, who returned to competition after almost two months out.

On Peng's heels were teammates Beryl Wang '20 and Gabbie DeSombre '21, with scores of 81 (+9) and 82 (+10) that positioned them in ninth and 12th places, respectively, heading into the second day.

"With all the success we had past year, we only had one all-conference player", West coach Jon Andersen said.

The top scorer among those three was junior Kaytln Hasprey who shot +36 par. Buck struggled down the stretch with three double bogeys, but still managed to finish with a 77.

While the number of golfers may pose an immediate obstacle, an even bigger challenge is replacing standout Brandon Nelson, who graduated a year ago.

"Our team as a whole didn't perform as well at this tournament".

"I'm very impressed with the group we have", Kelm said. "We definitely need to work on our wedges and short game". "Today was another average day for us, but considering the weather, I'll take that".

There was a large gap in separation between Eastern and the teams at the top of the standings, and also in the middle of the standings as far as that is concerned. Chang faltered on Saturday, shooting a 93 (+21), but the team defeated second-place Towson by seven strokes, with local rival Quinnipiac finishing in third, 16 strokes behind Yale. The California University of Pennsylvania won the tournament with an overall score of 598. Northern Iowa finished one behind them at +39 par.
