NU golfers shoot under 200 in win
Nevada Union’s golf team continues to impress early in the Sierra Foothill League season, shooting below 200 at Granite Bay Country Club to beat host Granite Bay 195-201.
“That’s a nice one for us,” NU coach Hank Davidson said. “We got players calling up ex-teammates from last year to tell ’em what they’re doing. It’s exciting for ’em.”
Travis Callison exceeded expectations, shooting from the No. 3 spot. He carded even on the 36-par course to lead his team. Zak Leonard followed by shooting a 37 while Spencer Biersdorff shot a 38 and freshman Adam Grizzell shot a 39.
“Adam was doing well on the junior varsity so we brought him up,” Davidson said.
Colin Rufferford shot a 45 to round out the Miners’ scoring.
NU is now 2-0 in the SFL. They’ll take a break this week to help do maintenance at Alta Sierra Country Club, the school’s home course, before returning Thursday to play Del Oro.
Forest Lake Christian 266, Sacramento Country Day 267
Forest Lake Christian’s golf team edged out visiting Sacramento Country Day by one stroke, winning 266-267 Thursday.
Austin Rosene shot a 47 to lead the Falcons and Sam Stockton followed with a 49.
The next closest Falcon was Andrew Baker who shot a 56. Colby Shaules and Spencer Lewis both carded a 57 to round out FLC’s day.
“It’s hard to say which one made the difference,” FLC coach Joel Meisenheimer said. “All three (on the end) were pretty close.”
The Falcons were playing without their probable No. 1 and 2 players, with Johnny Umamoto and Travis Stokes still playing basketball. FLC continues play against Faith Christian at Peach Tree in Yuba City Tuesday.
