Unusual day for Dayton golfers in four-team match at Tekoa Golf Club


TEKOA - Dayton, Tekoa-Oakesdale-Rosalia, St. John-Endicott and Asotin played 18 holes on an unusual day on the par-70 Tekoa Golf Club Tuesday.

Full scores weren't available, and weather was a factor.

"It poured the first couple of holes, and then the wind chilled the kids to the bone," said Dayton head coach Mike McGhan.

Asotin left unexpectedly during the match, taking scorecards with them, McGhan said.

The other coaches were unprepared for the abrupt departure, he said.

"I have never seen anything quite like that," he said."

Dayton's players played the Tekoa course for the first time, McGhan said.

"This is the first time we've seen Tekoa's course, and it turned out to be challenging on our kids," he said. "I am proud of the way our golfers hung in there and completed their rounds."

In boy's scores, Dayton's Dain Henderson was fifth on the course with a 93. Andre Fayette was incomplete.

The low score for the boys was Tekoa-Oakesdale-Rosalia's Earl Gaines, hitting 84.

For the girls, Kalee Lytle placed third for Dayton with 122. Caylyn Tate hit 131, Chelsey Martin hit 155 and Kyle Ihle was incomplete.

The girls' low-scorer was Erin Schuster, from St. John-Endicott, hitting 96.
