West Albany’s Boys Golf Team took first place in the Mid-Willamette Conference opener with a team score of 319 at the OGA Golf Course.
West was paced by junior Brock Nelson who carded a 77 in the windy conditions. That score was good enough for second place individually.
Senior Grant Moen was right on his tail with a 78, securing fourth place.
Fellow senior Andrew Liles shot 80 as senior Trenton Crow and sophomore Nick Anderson shot 84 and 85, respectively.
”It was not a normal first tournament, but not much has been normal in the last year,” West Albany coach Matt Boase said.
”It was sunny and windy, which made playing conditions pretty tough out there. The guys would try to judge the wind before they hit a shot, and then it would change so they had to rethink their choices. It was tricky.”
The Bulldogs with get a day off before playing again Wednesday at Spring Hill Golf Course.
