Eichten earns third straight trip to state
CRESWELL Newbergs Tori Eichten didnt play her best golf of the season at the Pacific Conference district tournament May 12-13 at Quail Valley Golf Course in Banks, but her matching rounds of 87 were good enough for fifth place and a ticket to the state tournament Monday and Tuesday.
I felt like a played pretty well, Eichten said. I had some holes that just werent all that great, but overall I hit the ball pretty well.
Eichten qualified for her third consecutive state tournament, shooting a disappointing 92 in her opening round at Emerald Valley Golf Course.
The scores were a little bit high (Monday) for everybody, coach Mike Weston said. The greens were pretty tough, with a lot of three and four putts.
Despite the rough outing, Eichten knows better than to get rattled for her second round Tuesday (results unavailable at press time).
I didnt play all that well (Monday), but its just fun to be out here, Eichten said. Im not all that concerned with my score.
