Weiser golf teams compete in first Snake River Valley match placing third

The Weiser Wolverine golf team traveled to Payette on Monday, March 28 to golf 9 holes at Scotch Pines. Playing the first day back after a week off for spring break is always a tough endeavor. Despite the time off, the Wolverines showed up and played well.
 The day started off a bit stormy with strong winds and rain. By the time the tournament started in the afternoon, the wind had died down some and the rain had stopped, making the round enjoyable.  
 All six Snake River Valley schools were able to field varsity teams on the boys’ side. Teams are made up of five players with the highest score being dropped for the team total. Since one score is dropped, a team can be comprised of four players where all of the scores are used. 
 McCall, Homedale, Parma, and Fruitland had teams comprised of five golfers, while Payette and Weiser had four golfers each. 
 The top three boys’ teams scores were tight with Homedale finishing in first place with 181, McCall in second with 183, and Weiser in third place with a team score of 190. 
 Fruitland’s team ended the day with a total score of 203, Parma with 211 and Payette with 247, rounding out the six teams. 
 Weiser Wolverine Carter Williams earned top medalist honors for the second tournament in a row. Williams finished his 9 hole round at par for a solid score of 36. Eli Heck of Homedale finished in second with a score of 42, 6 over par. Tate Ova and Fisher Alt both from McCall scored a 43 tying for third place. 
 Along with Williams’ 36, Weiser’s Devyn Young finished the round with a strong 47, Calvin Clapperton with a 49, and Braxton Franek had a 58 to round out the Wolverine’s team score.
 Three of the six SRV schools were able to field full girls’ varsity teams.  The top team score went to the McCall Vandals. They finished the day with a team score of 213, earning first place honors. 
 Second and third place were separated by only one stroke. The Fruitland Grizzlies edged out the Wolverines with a score of 247 only one better than Weiser’s 248. 
 Homedale and Payette both brought two girls and Parma had one. With not enough golfers to make up a team, these girls competed as individuals. 
 Tea Uranga from Homedale earned top medalist honors for the girls with a score of 41, only five over par. McCall’s Lexi Larsen finished in second with a score of 50. Larsen’s teammate Piper Lamm finished in third with a score of 51. 
 Weiser Wolverines Paige Johnson and Lucy Hickey were low scorers for Weiser, both finished with 61, Jasi Yraguen ended one stroke behind with a 62. Hannah Grace turned in a 64 and Serena Boles a 70. 
 The Wolverines have over a week off to work on their game and will be back competing as they host a varsity SRV match on Wednesday, April 6.
