On the girls’ side, freshman Kiersten Bartels collected the second-place medal carding a 53.

The Pirate golf team traveled to Clarkston’s Quail Ridge Golf Course on Tuesday, March 22. Asotin High hosted 50 players from 12 schools.
Chase Caruso’s score of 90 was the best among the girls and in fact better than 75% of the boys competing.
On the boys’ side, Jett Slusser and Reggie Ott also competed, with Jett carding a 105 and Reggie a 124.
“Since this was our first match of the season and Reggie’s first ever, I was very pleased with the kids’ performances,” said Pirate Golf Head Coach Al Damron.
