Sports Roundup: Bobcat golfers suffer rare loss


Tigers 73, Bobcats 71

CHEHALIS — Centralia handed Aberdeen its first girls dual golf loss in four years in an Evergreen 2A Conference finale Monday at the Riverside Golf Course.

Aberdeen’s Melissa Stevenson took medalist honors with 20 points in a match scored under the Stableford system. Paige Kuhn added a 19 for the Bobcats (7-1), but the Tigers had greater depth.

Loggers 7, Elks 3

AMANDA PARK — Onalaska scored four times in the first inning and outlasted Lake Quinault in non-league play on Monday at Amanda Park.

Richy Carlile came in in relief to pitch in the fourth inning and added two hits for the Elks (10-6). But the Elks mustered only four hits and struck out 10 times.

“In the first inning, they (the Loggers) scored four runs, two by walks and one on an error,” said Elks head coach Keith Samplawski. “With that, we shot ourselves in the foot and couldn’t catch up. After the first inning, we played a good game.”

Samplawski praised Kobe Kalama for his catching.

Lake Quinault begins district play on Saturday against Evergreen Lutheran at 2 p.m. at Muckleshoot.
