BREMERTON, Wash. - Walla Walla Community College's golfers got their first look at this year's NWAACC competition Sunday and Monday at Olympic and McCormick Woods, and they like what they see.
"They were great tracks to play, and good tests for the players," Warriors coach Mike Rostollan said. "It was the first chance to see the new players in the league, and it looks like we'll be very competitive on both the men's and women's sides."
The WWCC men finished third as a team behind Spokane and Bellevue, and Warrior Dona Dunovant finished second individually. Spokane's Kelsey Berg won the women's side with a 36-hole 80-75-155, two strokes ahead of Dunovant's 78-79-157.
The Warriors' other women's golfer, Jaime Robison, finished 111-110-221.
On the men's side, Bellevue's Tyler McDougal and Skagit Valley's Jeff Neeley were co-medalists at 108 in the shortened 27-hole tournament.
Walla Walla's Max Levitch finished third at 110, with Warrior Cory Spencer at 111, Brady Fay 117, Dakota Hll 119, Drew Morgan 124 and Ryan Hodl 130.
Spokane won the men's team scores at 448, followed by Bellevue 449, WWCC 454, Olympic 457, Skagit Valley 458, Green River 480, Southwest Oregon 496, Treasure Valley 499 and Columbia Basin 512.
On the women's side, Spokane won with a 500 total, followed by Bellevue 560, CBC 561, Grays Harbor 574, Olympic 582, SW Oregon 636 and Treasure Valley 639.
"The top half of the league looks really strong this year," Rostollan said.
The Warriors travel to Suncadia in Roslyn, Wash., in two weeks before hosting the WWCC Fall Fury at Wine Valley Golf Course Oct. 25-26 to round out the fall season.
