$n$ Pomeroy golfer splits medal at Colfax


COLFAX - Pomeroy's Joel Meyers shared medalist honors with Tyler Stevenson of Colfax in the rain here Thursday afternoon in a boys' five-school golf match at the soggy Colfax Golf Club.

Meyers and Stevenson matched 39s on the nine-hole course that played at par-34 on Thursday because of the wet conditions.

"They had to change the No. 1 hole from par-4 to par-3 because of water on the course," Pirates coach Jim Greene said. "It was 54 degrees and we played in a steady rain, and there was standing water all over the course. We played winter rules: Pick, clean and place."

Colfax took first place in the team scoring with a 212 score for its top five players over nine holes of play. Pomeroy was a close second at 215, followed by Tekoa-Oakesdale-Rosalia 248 and St. John-Endicott 255. Asotin entered an incomplete team.

Other scores for Pomeroy, which served as the host school, were Tyson Feider and Riley Bott tied for third place with matching 40s, Tanner Feider in 12th place with a 45, Wyatt Hyer 20th with a 51 and Mitch McGreevy 23rd with a non-counting 54. There were a total of 29 in the field.

A pair of Asotin players, Corey Shetzle and Jon Eaton, matched 40s and were also in the logjam for third place. Cole McCanna led St. John-Endicott with a 41 and was seventh overall while Joe Gaines was Tekoa-Oakesdale-Rosalia's top player in 14th place with a 47.

A total of 10 girls also participated.

Michal Schuster of St. John-Endicott was the medalist with a 42 and Pomeroy's Teresa Meyers, her school's only entry, finished second with a 50.

Pomeroy has next week off for spring break and returns to action April 10 in a four-school, nine-hole match in Tekoa.
