North storms to district lead

KLAMATH FALLS — If it weren't for a sizable lead heading into Monday's first round of the boys Southern Oregon Conference district golf tournament, the South Medford boys might have something to be worried about.

All five Panther golfers uncharacteristically recorded scores in the 80s and South finds itself in fourth place heading into today's final round at Reames Golf and Country Club.

In blustery, cold conditions, North Medford gained 15 strokes in the overall standings after a first-day score of 311 but still stands 28 strokes off the overall conference lead.

The team with the lowest score of five regular-season matches combined with two rounds at district qualifies for one of two SOC berths to the state tournament. A second spot goes to the district winner or to the team that places second should the same team win district and be the low team.

Roseburg is in second at district with a 316, Klamath Union is third with a 318 and the Panthers are at 326.

The final round is today with the first group teeing off at 10:30 a.m.

North's Adam Browne was the low man after the first round, coming in at 1-over-par 73, while teammate Mike Barry is second at 75.

Only seven of the 40 competitors shot in the 70s due to wind gusts of 15 to 25 mph.

It was pretty tough conditions out there, said South Medford coach Bill Singler. The greens were pretty firm and the wind was blowing a lot of shots off line.

Brodie Sullivan led South with an 80, while Noah Horstman finished with an 81.

Entering the district tournament, Horstman averaged an even-par 72 throughout conference play, and Sullivan's 77.5 average was the highest on the South Medford team.

Well we can hope for a little friendlier playing conditions, said Singler. Our kids have played so well all year, and usually you?ll have one round that kind of gets away from you.

If they shoot what they've done all year, then it?ll be hard pressed for somebody to beat us.
