Indians win tournament

WARRENTON — Seaside’s Katy Kawasoe prepared for next week’s district tournament with a 20-stroke victory Monday, in the Astoria Fish Invite at the Astoria Golf & Country Club.

Only two of the six competing schools fielded complete teams, with Scappoose finishing with a 474, and Ilwaco at 484.

Golfers from Astoria, Banks, Seaside and Tillamook also competed.

Kawasoe shot a 47 on the front nine, and followed it up with a 40 on the back, which included a long putt for birdie on the final hole.

Seeking her fourth straight district crown, Kawasoe’s 87 was 20 strokes better than the runner-up, Lexi Schlosser of Scappoose, who carded a 107.

Astoria sophomore Chloee Hunt was a close third at 109, followed by a pair of Ilwaco golfers – Phoebe Millsap (113) and Ahnna Neace (117).

Also scoring for Seaside were Cadyn Carr (129) and Caroline Kotson (131), while Astoria’s Justine Qualls had a 143.

The District 1/4A-3A tournament begins next Monday at Gearhart Golf Course, and concludes Tuesday at the Astoria Golf & Country Club.


Gulls 10, Tigers 3

SEASIDE — After 14 straight losses, the Seaside Gulls are back in the win column, following a 10-3 victory over Yamhill-Carlton Friday night at Broadway Field.

The Gulls also snapped a 13-game losing streak in Cowapa League games going back to last season (their last win was a 14-1 decision over Yamhill-Carlton April 29 of last year, also at Broadway).

Aaron Tadei pitched a five strong innings for Seaside, allowing two hits with three strikeouts and two walks. Kevin LaCoste pitched the final two innings, allowing one hit.

“Aaron did a fantastic job,” said Seaside coach Joel Dierickx. “He’s improving, like he has all season, and finally got some support defensively.”

Offensively, LaCoste had two hits, a double and three RBIs. Zach Quicke, Nick Richardson, Jake Strozzi and Danny Leary all had two hits apiece for Seaside, which scored two runs in the second inning, then added five in the fourth and three in the fifth.
