POST FALLS — The Sandpoint girls golf team captured second and the boys claimed fourth at the Post Falls Invitational on Wednesday at The Highlands Golf Course.

The runner-up finish for the girls ended their winning streak. They won the team title at their last three tournaments and beat out Coeur d'Alene each time. But on Wednesday, the Vikings edged out the Bulldogs by three strokes.

CeCe Deprez led the way for the girls, carding an 86. She was one stroke behind the medalist, Lake City's JoJo Dodge (85).

Hattie Larson shot a 93, Camille Neuder tallied a 95, Annaby Kanning posted a 105 and Audrey Sheffler finished with a 107.

On the boys side, Sandpoint finished five strokes ahead of fifth-place Lakeland. Harley Wilks shot a 86, Darren Bailey had a 87 and Connor Bird carded an 88. Dawson Owens finished with a 91 and Jake Samuels grabbed a 96.

Head coach Mike Deprez said The Highlands is a difficult golf course that isn't very forgiving on errant shots, and most of his golfers learned that Wednesday.

"It's a very tight golf course," he said, "so there's essentially out of bounds or a penalty area on every single hole, and it's going to come up and it's going to bite you."

Despite that, Deprez was pleased with the Bulldogs' rounds and he is optimistic about where they are heading.

"I think all the kids are turning in the right direction," he said. "Their contact is solid and they are starting to get the speed of late spring greens down and that's important."

The Bulldogs host the Sandpoint Invitational on Monday at The Idaho Club. It's the first and only home match for SHS this season.

Deprez is looking forward to the tournament.

"Much like the golf course we just played, it's going to be challenging," he said. "There's a large numbers of holes where you can't miss it right or you can't miss it left, and you got to carry it a certain distance ... It's not very kind on imperfect shots."
