The Lions top Lakeridge and Lake Oswego by one stroke, girls team wins again

The West Linn boys golf team stayed in contention for a league title Monday with a thrilling victory at Chehalem Glen, its first of the year.

The Lions fired a team score of 310 which topped Lake Oswego and Lakeridge by a single stroke. The Lakers would finish third in the tiebreaker with the Pacers, moving West Linn to within four points of Lake Oswego.

The Lakers were playing without one of their top golfers and the Lions took advantage in a strong team effort.

CJ Sitton fired West Linn's low round of the afternoon with a 74, just one stroke off the low round of the tournament.

Brett Bushnell was next for Wets Linn with a 77, one shot away from his previous low round of the year.

Ryan Kelley came in with another round in the 70s this year, shooting 79 while Hayden Coppedge rounded out the scoring with an even 80.

Just one more league tournament remains for the Lions who will play at Persimmon next week. West Linn has all but locked up a trip to state, having put more ground between itself and Lakeridge for second and will look to gain more ground on the Lakers before districts.

For the girls, West Linn scored another solid victory, shooting a team score of 310, good for its second-best showing of the year.

Sarah Archuleta returned and grabbed medalist honors once again with her second-best league score of the year. She shot a 73 which was good enough to win by five strokes.

Amanda Elich tied with Lake Oswego's Cami Dozois for the second-best score of the tournament, shooting a 78, one stroke away from her best showing of the year.

Katie Fillion had a breakout performance, cracking 80 for the first time this season with a stellar round of 79.

Kristin Elich was just one stroke behind that with an 80.

West Linn wraps up the regular season Monday and will begin preparing for districts.
