Mules 2nd in district golf
May 6, 2021
The Mule Train threw a wheel last week, and the Adna Pirates took advantage of the opportunity to capture their first District IV championship at 3 Rivers Golf Course and took the traveling trophy home for the remainder of 2021.
Braeden Salme led the Pirates, capturing the gold medal shooting an 86. Todd Tabor, Kalama, shot 87 for a silver medal, and Mule Brody Carlson captured the bronze medal with a 90. Adna's Aaron Aselton came in 4th at 93, and Logan LaBerge, Wahkiakum, came in 5th with a 94.
The Mule team settled for second place for the second time in a row, losing to Life Christian in 2019 and now to Adna who scored 49.5 team points to Wahkiakum's 36. Kalama finished third with 17, North Beach fourth 9.5, Toutle Lake fifth 8, and Winlock sixth with 6 points.
Scoring team points required golfers finish in the top half of the 33 entrants. So also scoring team points for the Mules were Braxton Johns ninth and Kaleo Silva finishing 13th. Pirates Andrew Grim tied for sixth, Chris McGuire 13th, and Chase Collins tied Seth Meister for 14th place.
In the girls championship, Ilwaco came in first with 36 points, Kalama second, Northwest Christian third, 13, and Wahkiakum scored 11 points for fourth place. Individual medals went to Ilwaco's Gabby Bell gold 49, Zoey Zuern silver 53; Kalama took bronze with 53. NWC's Gretchen Stottlemyer shot 57 for fourth, and Wahkiakum's Avery Wiltse-Hiatt came in fifth with a 62.
