ISLAND CITY — Rain shortened the La Grande Girls Invitational from an 18-hole event into nine holes at the Country Club Tuesday.

The La Grande girls took second with a team score of 195. Hermiston won with a team score of 181.

"I was a little disappointed in that I know the girls can play better, and we can't use weather as an excuse because the entire field suffered the same elements," La Grande coach Candy Brooks said. "We had the home course advantage, and I really thought we had a good chance of winning."

"I can't really say what specifically the problem was," Brooks said. "Each player had their own tales of woe — what was working and what wasn't. However, Kacey Evins (first time varsity player for La Grande) was delighted with her score of 48."

Kelli Greenough started out well, Brooks said, but she got into trouble on the latter holes, ending up with a 46.

After Evins, Nicole Lewis had 50, Carrie Waldrop shot a 51 and Sommer Presley got a 56.

The La Grande junior varsity also competed.

"Our JVs participated as well and being as how this was only their second tournament experience for all but one player, I was very pleased with their results," Brooks said.

Bess Buzzard led the JV with a 59, Aubrey Glaze was next with 66, followed by Diedra Pokorney with a 67, Joellyn Hasse had a 73, Bethany Karrels shot a 74 and Laura Cathey and Kalee Braseth both ended up with 76s.

Enterprise's top golfer was Kayla Miller, who shot 53, followed by Kayla Stoffel with a 60, Cami Conrad with 61, Shayla Thompson with 64 and Jessie Morgan with 65.

Tiffany Simmons of Hermiston was medalist with a 40. Jenny Putnam of Hermiston was two strokes back and Shannon Wetherell of Riverside was third at 44.

Pendleton was third with a 202, followed by Riverside with 210, Baker with 233, Enterprise with 238, Ontario with 246 and La Grande's JV with 280.

The La Grande girls head to the Enterprise Invitational Monday.
