Girls golf: Canby 'disappointed' in outing at Portland Golf Club

The Cougars take fourth place among TRL teams at the March 31 tournament.


The Canby girls golf team wasn’t at its best, and its conference opponents weren’t going to show any mercy.

The Cougars finished with a team total of 422 strokes to take fourth place among Three Rivers League squads during a tournament March 31 at Portland Golf Club.

Even though they made a 10-stroke improvement on their performance at a March 17 invitational in Tualatin, they ended up well behind West Linn (326), Lake Oswego (377) and Clackamas (391).

“They were disappointed in their scores,” Canby coach Terry Bailey said. “It’s still not where we need to be. We still have work to do.”

Hannah Stobie carded a team-best 98, Michaela Reed shot a 99 and Lilly Pruitt came through with a 104. Taylor Jorgensen (121) and Chantel Gallick (125) rounded out the Cougars’ lineup on the par-72 course.

“The course was great,” Bailey said. “Portland Golf Club can play really long, but it was in pretty good shape — just a little wet.”

Gallick was filling in for Alyssa Gascho, who Bailey said was out of town for the competition.

“She was maybe a little nervous,” Bailey said of the freshman. “But she shows a lot of potential.”

A top-two finish in the conference standings is still possible for Canby, but each golfer will likely have to score consistently in the mid-90s.

Bailey said much of the Cougars’ progress will come in chipping and putting, which were emphasized in practice April 3.

Canby will participate in a TRL tournament April 14 at Oswego Lake Country Club.
