PREP ROUNDUP: Bear River golf takes 2nd at PVL tourney

The Bear River girls golf team set a school record low for 18 holes with a team score of 417 at the first Pioneer Valley League tournament of the season held at the Par-71 Bartley Cavanaugh Golf Course. Unfortunately for the Lady Bruins, Placer was just a little bit better.

The Hillgals scored an impressive 409 as a team to edge the Lady Bruins by eight strokes. Placer and Bear River were way ahead of the rest of the PVL as Colfax placed third with a score of 458, Lincoln was third with a 472 and Center was fifth with a 608.

Placer’s Natalie Pietromonaco was the day’s medalist with an individual score of 73.

Leading Bear River was sophomore Hannah Prosser with a team-beat 77. Sophomore Kalei Owen and freshmen Dominique Peter were next for the Lady Bruins with an 81 on their scorecards. Serenity Edwards shot an 87 and Madison Templeton had a 91 to round out the scoring for Bear River.

Bear River is the reigning PVL champs, but have struggled with Placer this season. Before beating Bear River at the PVL tourney, the Hillgals beat the Lady Bruins by one-stroke in dual match at Auburn Valley Country Club.

Bear River (3-1) gets back at it Monday when they face Center at Cherry Island Golf Course.
