PREP GOLF: Bear River edged by Placer in PVL tilt

The Bear River girls golf team dropped their first match of the season Tuesday, falling to Pioneer Valley League rival Placer by one stroke at Auburn Valley Country Club.

The Lady Bruins, who went undefeated in league play in 2015, had won their first two matches of the season before losing to Placer 237-238.

Leading the Lady Bruins against Placer was sophomore Hannah Prosser with a team best 42 on the par-36 course. Bear River freshmen Dominique Peter was next with a 46, Bella Betula shot a 47, sophomore Madison Templeton had a 50, and Serenity Edwards and Kalei Owen rounded things out with 53s on their respective score cards.

The loss is Bear River’s first league loss since 2014.

Last week, the Lady Bruins had an outstanding effort against Center, not only trouncing the Cougars but also setting a team record at Lake of the Pines Golf Course.

Bear River finished with a team score of 211 on the nine hole course, which longtime coach Gayne Nakano said was the best in school history.

Leading the way was Prosser (36), who was followed by Peter (42), Owen (44), Betula (44), Templeton (45) and Edwards (45).

The Lady Bruins (2-1) get back to action Thursday against Colfax at The Ridge.
