Canby lady golfers assume league driver's seat
After Monday's league match, the Canby High girls golf team now holds the lead in the race for the Three Rivers League title.
Coach Terry Bailey's team captured Monday's tournament by one stroke, which gives the Cougars a six-point lead over West Linn in the title chase going into next Monday's match at OGA course in Woodburn.
"They were very excited and they all played well, which they needed to do because scores are always lower at WVCC," Bailey said. "It does not have the hills that the previous two course have and is much more straightforward to play."
Tyler Olson led the way for the Cougars, posting an 88. She was followed by Hannah Hughes with an 89, Allison Bassett with a 93 and McKenna Moore, who shot a 116.
"Lake Oswego did not post a team score, but with how Canby played in comparison to his three girls that did play, I believe we would have beaten them also," Bailey said. "Once again, the girls are proving to hang tough."
