Golfers come out swinging vs. Clark Fork

Print Article

PRIEST RIVER - The Spartan golf team took its first swing at competition here March 26. In its season opening match with Clark Fork, the Priest River boys team shot a 178 while Clark Fork shot a 268. Head coach Dan Buttrey said, “The boys shot well for the first match of the year.”

Team captain Kody Salesky and Ben Zapfe each shot a 44 on a par 33. Frosh Zapfe is someone to watch, said Buttrey. Dillion Yeoman and Conner Vaage each shot a 45. By comparison, Clark Fork’s best golfer shot a 50.

Freshman and first year golfer Tanner Cochrane struggled but showed improvement, said Buttrey.

On the girls side, the Priest River ladies shot a 246. Clark Fork could not field a girls team due to spring break, but their lone female competitor had a 41 on the day.

Buttrey said, “Due to the weather and time we chose to only play seven holes instead of nine. The girls being so young and all first year varsity golfers struggled a little, But I’m still very proud of their performance.”

Girls team leaders Maddy Rusho and Amy Flack shot 53 and 63, respectively, while Brittaney Millward and Maggy Pankoke shot 64 and 66. Victoria Millward, Heather Pounds, and Beverly Landeros followed closely behind.

Buttrey said, “I am glad to get this first match under our belt. I am proud of all my golfers and look forward to the rest of the year.”

The Spartans’ next match is scheduled for April 13 at Timberlake.
