RICHLAND — Walla Walla High School’s girls golfers finished in the middle of the pack at the third Mid-Columbia Conference Pod match at Horn Rapids here Monday.
The Blue Devils finished with a team score of 377, which trailed Southridge’s 333, Kamiakin and Pasco at 353 and Hanford at 374.
Richland came in behind Wa-Hi at 386, with Chiawana and Kennewick carding 470s.
Southridge’s Catherine Warner outdistanced the competition with an even-par 72.
Pasco’s Neydeen Martinez and Southridge’s Sydney Meilleur were next at 79.
Jessica Huntsman carded an 82 to lead Wa-Hi, with Kendall Dunovant coming in at 93, Marisa Jimenez at 97, and Brooke Cramer 105.
“We’re hitting the ball, but we’re not scoring well,” Blue Devil coach Mike Patterson said. “We have one, two or three holes that reach up and bite us. We just need to work through it, keep working on it, and hopefully those scores will come down. The girls are hitting the ball pretty well, we’re just not able to score.”
After the first three Pod matches, with three remaining, Southridge leads with 21 points, followed by Kamiakin and Pasco at 19.5, Wa-Hi at 16.5, Hanford at 13.5, Richland with 9, Chiawana 3.5 and Kennewick 2.5.
The Blue Devils next head to Canyon Lakes for the fourth MCC Pod match on April 30.
