Golfers head to Dupont
By Grace Ellis - Staff Reporter
A recurring knee injury knocked Highline's golf team out of a tournament last week, but not off the course.
Despite Paige Mellum's withdrawal from play after the injury that has plagued her all season resurfaced, her teammates continued on, even if their scores wouldn't count.
The match was for the South- west Oregon Invitational, and took place May 12-13 at Bandon Crossings.
Only two Highline players played through the whole match: Jenna Muller and Alyssa Metzger. Mellum withdrew in the middle of the match due to her injury.
Because of this however, Highline was forced to with- draw from team play, though Muller and Metzger went on the finish the second round.
Muller scored 179 for the two rounds, while Metzger scored 201.
Three other teams played, including Southwest Oregon, Columbia Basin College, and Skagit Valley. All four teams
played two rounds of 18 holes over two days.
Columbia Basin College emerged in first with an overall scoreof513.
The course was a good challenge for the team, said Coach Steve Turcotte.
"The course was fair, but tough. The length was something the ladies hadn't seen be- fore, so it tested every club in their bag," Turcotte said.
Despite the match's setback, Mellum is planning to play in the championships.
Highline also attended the Columbia Basin Invitational on May 10 at the Tokatee Golf Club. Three Highline players played: Muller, Mellum, and Metzger.
Southwest Oregon won the round with an overall score of 236. Columbia Basin College followed with an overall score of 250.
Highline placed third out of the three teams, with an overall score of 287.
Muller scored a 93. Mellum and Metzger tied both their scores at 97 strokes.
The team's final match will be for the league champion- ship on May 19-20 at The Home Course in Dupont, Wash.
