Warriors battle winds at Bandon Dunes tourney

The women finish fifth and the men are sixth at the two-day tournament.


BANDON, Ore. - Walla Walla Community College's men golfed to sixth and the women finished fifth at the Southwestern Oregon Invitational at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort Monday.

Josh Scothorne led the Warrior men with a two-day score of 72-83-155 for 15th place on the par-71 Bandon Trails, while Dona Dunovant carded a 89-87-176 for fourth on the par-71 Old McDonald course.

"Dona just wasn't on her game," said WWCC head coach Mike Rostollan. "She's always right there, but she was just a little off her game. Josh was right in the thick of it until he last three or four holes, when he made a quadruple bogey, a double bogey and a bogey, and that's just not the way to finish."

WWCC's other men's scores were Cory Spencer 76-84-160, Drew Morgan 80-82-162, Eric Wright 76-89-165, Mike Irvin 85-81-166 and Ash Mile 79-93-172. The wind kicked up in the men's round, Rostollan said.

The men's medalist was Spokane's Alex Pounds at 71-74-145.

The University of Fraser Valley, from British Columbia, won the men's side at 296-301-597, then Spokane 297-301-598, Bellevue 293-312-605, Skagit Valley 312-310-622, Olympic 305-322-627, WWCC's 303-330-633, Green River 308-327-635, Columbia Basin's 317-326-643, Treasure Valley 327-320-647, Southwest Oregon 321-330-651, Gray's Harbor 339-352-691 and Central Washington University 337-396-706.

The WWCC women scored 304-283-587 in the two days. Jamie Robison had a 105-96-201 and Jordan Simkins had 110-122-232 to join Dunovant.

Kelsey Berg from Spokane was the medalist with an 82-85-167.

Spokane won the women's side with a 261-250-511. Olympic had 279-273-552, Skagit Valley 277-285-562 , Bellevue 282-287-569, WWCC's 304-283-587, Southwest Oregon's 300-288-588, CBC's 302-209-611, Centralia 331-311-642 and Treasure Valley 350-323-673.

With the tough weekend behind them, Rostollan is prepping his team for the NWAACC Championships May 22-23 at Horn Rapids in Richland.

"We'll hit it hard the next couple of weeks," he said. "We're running out of tournaments - we're down to one. We'd better make things happen and give it our best shot."
