Jaron Howell led the Bearcats with a 41, helping W.F. West to a 229-238 win over Black Hills in an Evergreen 2A Conference golf match at Newaukum Valley Golf Course on Monday.
Black Hills’ Tyler Cassell earned medalist honors with a 38. Howell finished second and W.F. West’s Andrew Kim had a 44 to take third.
W.F. West’s Jordan Waring shot a 46, and teammate Wyatt Magnuson was close behind with a 48. Brady Hinds shot a 50 and Bryce Dobyns rounded out the Bearcat scoring with a 52.
“We got a lot of guys who have moved up from JV to varsity this year,” W.F. West coach Bruce Thompson said. “They are learning how to make some smart decisions out there as far as course management, I would think this is a pretty good start.”
