WWCC's Dona Dunovant leads Warrior golfers at the NWAACC match in Richland.


RICHLAND - Walla Walla Community College golfer Dona Dunovant held on to win the women's side of an NWAACC golf match hosted by Columbia Basin College at Canyon Lakes here Monday.

Dunovant finished 75-88-163 to finish atop the field.

The Warriors' men's and women's teams finished third.

"The course was terrific, it's always great to play Canyon Lakes," WWCC coach Mike Rostollan said "It was fast, so there was all kinds of sport for the players. The weather cooperated. It was cold in the morning, but very playable in the afternoon.

"It was a good test for them," he said. "We've got some work to do, but it was a good showing for both teams."

On the men's side, Warrior Josh Scothorne, who was tied with two others at 72 atop the men's field after the first round at Horn Rapids, finished with an 82 Monday. The 154 gave him fifth place.

Scothorne and WWCC's Ash Miles, who finished in ninth at 79-79-158, both qualified for the next tournament. The top 10 finishers earned automatic bids to the NWAACC match at Portland's Heron Lakes April 10-11.
