Hoquiam freshman John Sand outdueled Aberdeen’s Eric Hagen, but the Bobcats came away with the low score during Monday’s Grays Harbor Jamboree at Grays Harbor Country Club.
Sand earned medalist honors for Hoquiam with a 34, two better than Hagen. The Bobcats finished with a 180 score, with the Grizzlies at 193 and Montesano at 205.
“This was good; you get some of the kids used to the competition,” AHS head coach Harley Revel said. “It was fun to see John and Eric play. I can’t wait to see them play each other (in the Aberdeen-Hoquiam dual meet) on Sept. 24.”
On Thursday, Aberdeen hits the road to take on Black Hills in a non-league match.
