South Fork’s five-man golf team played in its first tournament last Monday at the Redwood Empire Golf Course in Fortuna. Head coach Jeff Henderson welcomes back just one returner to the team, junior Jim Michael, and will enjoy guiding his four beginners, junior Kyle Wescott, sophomores Travis Chagolla and Aaron Galvin, and freshman Romello Kirk through a season geared toward development for the inexperienced group.
Eureka won the tourney with a score of 407. South Fork had a team score of 616, and will have to take one high stroke score of 126 at each competition because it does not have the 6th player needed to make up a full team.
Michael was South Fork’s top scorer at 117 strokes. The next Humboldt Del Norte League tournament will be held Thursday, March 14 in Willow Creek.
