La Grande’s Tessa VanLaarhoven shot her best score of the year with a 108, while Cassidee Miller shot a 124. 

Dez Kellogg carded a 134 for the Lady Tigers.

“Tessa is where we need her to be,” LHS head coach Jayne Baremore said.

“If we can get Cassidee down there, then districts could be pretty exciting.”

The Lady Tigers will be back in action today in Enterprise.

The district tournament is scheduled to begin Monday in Pendleton.

The state tournament is set for May 13-14 at Eagle Crest Ridge Course in
