Centennial Golf Club in Medford was the site of the high school district golf tournament May 12-13, with several Lakeview High School golfers competing but missing the cut for invitation to the state tournament.
Tate Lightle had the best finish for LHS, placing eighth overall with 166 total strokes over the two-day tournament. Derrick Dunn placed fifteenth with a score of 223, and Jack Burgoyne finished eighteenth with 255 strokes.
Several golfers from other schools had unbelievable days, knocking out any LHS golfer from contention for the highly-coveted state tournament slots. Dylan Wu of St. Mary’s had the best overall score at the tournament, shooting a lights out 66 and 73 for a 139 total. Every golfer that qualified for state shot 72 or under, par for the course, on both days.
“It was a great time, a very good tournament,” said LHS Golf Coach Frank Logan. “It was well worth it, and even though we didn’t have any kids qualify for state I look forward to having them come back next year.”
With the LHS team comprised exclusively of sophomores and freshmen this year, the experience gained this year should pay dividends in the future.
Centennial Golf Club will continue to host the district tournament. According to Logan, it is the perfect spot, a beautiful course.
