At long last, varsity golfers get season underway
After weeks of waiting and several postponements and cancellations, the Quincy High School golfers finally could start their season, hosting Chelan and Cascade at Colockum Ridge on March 26.
The Jacks only fielded three male and two female varsity golfers, so the wins went elsewhere, but just to finally get the season started is a plus.
Stacia Sarty led the varsity girls for Quincy, shooting an 82, including a 40 on the back nine. Mackenzie Kleyn played just the front nine, shooting a 51.
Sarty’s round was the best among the varsity girls of all three teams. Leading the Chelan golfers was Kaylin Boykin with a 98, followed by Katie Rainville with a 111, Andrea Villa with a 115 and Sydnee Collins with a 150.
For Cascade, the varsity squad was composed of a lone golfer, Natalie Craig, who shot a 119 on the day.
Among boys, Nate Gonzalez led the Jacks, shooting an 83, while Trytan Ortiz shot a 100 and Gavin Sahli shot a 109.
Gonzalez’ round was second-best on the day, second only to Miles Grossberg of Chelan, who shot a 77, including a 38 on the front nine. Fellow Goat Joey Gaspar shot an 89, followed by Jeremy Avery with a 105, Ainsley Peterson with 109 and Parker Brown with 110.
For Cascade, Isaac Cortez shot an 84, including a 39 on the front nine. Austin Curry shot a 103, along with Michael Whitehead. Gavin Dwyer shot a 113 and Ledger Parrish shot a 122.
Among JV golfers, who played nine holes, Quincy’s Vijay Singh shot a 67 and teammate Ethan Royer shot a 65. For Cascade, Ryan Totman shot a 77 and for Chelan, David Chavez shot a 47, and Noah Christenson shot a 56.
In girls, Quincy’s JV squad had a full contingent, with Jennifer Silvas shooting a 69, followed by Bryonna Gray with 71, Karen Barragan with a 78, Pahola Villanueva with 86 and Paloma Villanueva with an 89.
Leading the JV golfers for Cascade was Laura Lyman who shot a 77. Only one JV female golfer suited up for Chelan and her name was not available.
Next up for Quincy’s girls is going to Ephrata on April 8, starting at 2:30 p.m. Quincy’s boys host Ephrata and Toppenish on April 11, starting at 2:30 p.m.
