ST. JOHN, Wash. — Pomeroy and host St. John-Endicott finished in a flat-footed tie here Thursday at the St. John Golf Course in a boys’ four-school, nine-hole golf match.
The Pirates and the Eagles registered identical scores of 255 for their top five players. Asotin carded 286 for third place and Tekoa-Oakesdale-Rosalia finished with a 327 count.
John Quinton of St. John-Endicott weathered bitter conditions to shoot a 6-over-par 41 and take medalist honors. John Eaton of Asotin shot 44 for second place while Riley Bott led Pomeroy with a 49.
“We’re guessing it was probably 38, maybe 38 degrees,” Pomeroy coach Jim Greene said of the weather conditions. “And we had hail, snow and sustained 25 mph winds, and some unbelievable gusts. It was not ideal for golf, but the kids got through it.”
Tyson Feider shot 50, Tanner Feider and Wyatt Hyer matched 51s and Seth Hyer turned in a 57 for Pomeroy’s other four counting scores. Tyler McGreevy shot a non-counting 64.
Lucas Engel was T-O-R’s leading scorer with 56.
There were a total of 26 boys in the field and 10 girls also participated.
St. John-Endicott’s Michal Schuster was the girls’ medalist with a 42. Teresa Meyers, Pomeroy’s only entry, finished second with a score of 50.
The same four schools will gather in Pomeroy Tuesday at the Crystal Spring Golf Course for another nine-hole competition. Tee times begin at 2 p.m.
