BURLINGTON, Wash. - Walla Walla Community College's Dona Dunovant extended her lead and topped the leaderboard on a rain-shortened round at Avalon Golf Course here Monday.
Dunovant, who held a five-stroke lead over Spokane's Alexa Bell after the first round Sunday, ended up winning by eight shots after the women's round was called after nine holes due to rain. Dunovant shot 82-44-126, followed by Bell at 86-47-134.
On the men's side, Bellevue had the top three golfers lead the way to first in the team standings, but WWCC leap-frogged Spokane to take second.
Bellevue recorded team scores of 293-312-605, followed by the Warriors at 299-321-620, Spokane 294-328-622, Skagit Valley 308-317-625, Olympic 307-322-629 and Green River 311-349-660.
Bellevue's Tyler McDougall (71-78-149) and Alex Mroz (70-79-149) tied for first, with teammate Price Coshow (75-75-150) taking third.
"You've got to hand it to Bellevue," WWCC coach Mike Rostollan said. "Spokane left us an opening, and our guys gutted it out on a cold, windy, rainy day."
For WWCC, Josh Scothorne was fifth at 75-77-152, Ash Miles tied for eighth at 72-82-154, Eric Wright carded a 77-81-158, Cory Spencer had 75-85-160, Mike Ervin 79-81-160, and Drew Morgan 78-86-167.
"Josh has consistently finished in the top five," Rostollan said. "The rest of the guys are stepping it up, too."
For the WWCC women, Jamie Robison had a 110-55-165.
The women's team scores were Spokane (265-149-414), Bellevue (294-157-451) and Olympic (298-163-461).
The Warriors head to Southwest Oregon to play at Bandon Dunes in the final NWAACC league match before the conference championships two weeks later.
"We'll look to put our best effort forward at Bandon Dunes," Rostollan said.
