By The Chronicle staff


Adna’s Andrew Grim shot a 47 to take match medalist honors as the Pirates won their fourth-consecutive meet, topping Northwest Christian and Ilwaco with 213 team points at Riverside Golf Course Monday.

Grim won by three strokes over runner-up and freshman teammate Braeden Salme (50), while Aaron Aselton shot a 52, Chase Collins a 64 and Seith Meister a 68. 

Northwest Christian was led by Josh Brink (59), Gabe Hanson (68) and Nolan Mason (72). Ilwaco had one lone golfer, Noah Cherry, who shot a 67.

Adna (4-0) travels to Wahkiakum for a meet on Wednesday with Toutle Lake and Northwest Christian.

Cards Host First-Ever Golf Match

It was a momentous day for the Winlock boys golf team Monday as the Cardinals hosted their first-ever golf meet at Newaukum Valley Golf Course.

“Big shout out to Newaukum Valley for being a great partner to us,” Winlock athletic director Nick Bamer said. “It was a gorgeous day in the Chehalis River Valley, but the golfers had to battle some strong and steady winds, and the pristine putting surface was a little quicker than most were used to.”

Joe Welch shot a 48 for the Cardinals, who did not have enough players to register a team score, while Preston Davis finished with a 53 in his varsity debut.

Wahkiakum won the five-team meet with 204 points. North Beach was second with 201. Columbia Adventis and Mary M. Knight only had one golfer each and did not score team points.
