Pomeroy golfers pick up surprise win


CLARKSTON - Pomeroy left the Quail Ridge Golf Course here late Thursday afternoon thinking it had lost a boys dual golf match to Asotin 446-442.

But after checking scorecards on the way home, Pirates coach Jim Greene discovered that his team had won the match 443-441.

"There were scores for both teams that were miscounted," Greene said.

Asotin's Drew Heitstuman still came out on top in the battle for individual medalist honors as he shot a 78 on the par-71 layout.

Joel Meyers finished two shots out of the lead as he led Pomeroy with an even 80. Other Pirate counting scores were Tyson Feider 85, Riley Bott 91, Tanner Feider 92 and Austin Starin 93. Wyatt Hyer shot a non-counting 111.

Weather conditions were tolerable here Tuesday, Greene said.

"It was overcast, there was a light breeze and the temperature was around 50, 51 degrees," he said. "And when the sun came out for a while late in the day, it was almost pleasant."

The Pirates will be back in action Saturday when they entertain St. John-Endicott in what has evolved into another dual match. Asotin and Tekoa-Oakesdale were originally entered in the 9-hole competition but backed out, Greene said.
