BANKS — Astoria finished a close third in a rain-shortened Scappoose Invitational golf match Thursday at Quail Valley Golf Course.
In a Stableford-scored match, Valley Catholic earned the victory with 71 points, followed by Scappoose (60), Astoria (58), Seaside (21) and Tillamook (3).
Due to poor course conditions and rain, the 18-hole event was halted after nine holes.
Valley Catholic’s Caroline Hobson was medalist with 27 points. Samantha Hemsley led Astoria with 20 points, while teammate Sarah Lertora (11 points) had the only birdie of the day, with a chip-in on the par 4 eighth hole.
Also competing for the Lady Fishermen were Jenna Travers (19 points), Sierra Adams (8) and Gracie Cummings (3).
Seaside sent three golfers to the match, and the Gulls were led by Tristyn McFadden with 13 points. Caitlin Hillman and Maddie Grimm scored four apiece.
Astoria competes Monday in the Seaside Invitational, which will take place at Gearhart Golf Links.
