Home arrow News arrow Local News arrow YOUNG LA GRANDE GOLFERS READY FOR GREENS



By Raenelle Kwock

Observer Staff Writer

Many new faces dot the La Grande girls golf team.

"It was such a pleasant surprise to do as well as they had in the first tournament," first-year coach Lonnie Myers said.

The Tigers were runners-up to Reynolds High School in The Dalles Invitational March 18. They beat 4A schools Pendleton and Hermiston.

Of the 11 girls, four are freshmen — Kendra Groves, Kashelly Craft, Elizabeth Garton and Kira Tao. The remaining players are Elizabeth Esser, foreign exchange student Chih-Ling Chang, Diedra Pokorney, Bess Buzzard, Kalee Braseth and Aubrey Glaze.

Senior Kelli Greenough missed the Tigers' first two tournaments after coming down with the flu last week. She'll get her first chance to compete at the Wildhorse Invitational March 31.

Greenough is determined to be first at district this season.

"This one girl has always gotten me at district," she said.

Ontario's Anna Jaramillo won district last year.

Greenough said the young Tiger team is doing well.

"I'm really impressed with what people are coming out with," she said. "They improved over the summer."

Garton has played junior golf since she was seven. Her parents and grandparents are golfers.

"It's fun," she said. "It takes up a lot of time."

Myers said Garton knows the rules well and practices often after playing in two tournaments.

Pokorney and Braseth were on the JV team last year. Buzzard was on varsity last year.

"Right now, she's (Glaze) really striking the ball well," Myers said.

He said the team chemistry is great.

"It's an interesting thing on trips, you know," Myers said.

He added that none of them want to let each other down and it helps them.

"They like each other," he said.
