Boys tie Central for 3rd in last league golf match

The Sweet Home boys tied for third with Central in a league match Monday, April 30, at Agate Beach.

The Huskies scored 347, led by Taylor Huschka’s 80, good for sixth place, behind Taft (311) and Newport (321).

“Jake Riggs as the star of the day as he continues to lower his score,” said Coach Tom Horn. Riggs shot 90, after carding a 98 the week before at Mallard Creek (see below). “He had another low round, shooting a 90. He just keeps getting better and better.”

Travis Ramoz was second for the Huskies with an 82 for seventh place, while Nick Zahler shot 95 and Nick Pitts a 98 to round out the top five for Sweet Home.

“Taylor Huschka continues to also play well,” Horn said. “He just needs to be able to finish a round strongly. ”
