SANDPOINT — For the first and only time this spring, the Sandpoint golf team had home-course advantage.

The Bulldogs hosted the Sandpoint Invitational on Monday at The Idaho Club, and SHS took advantage of the familiar surroundings.

The girls captured the team title while the boys finished second to first place Coeur d'Alene.

"It was great not having to travel," head coach Mike Deprez said.

It was the best team finish for the boys this season and Harley Wilks led the way with an 81 to capture fifth. It was his lowest round at a tournament this year.

"Harley started poorly, but then he righted his ship very well," Deprez said.

Darren Bailey and Connor Bird each shot an 88, Dawson Owens carded an 89 and Jake Samuels posted a 93.

"All five boys played well," Deprez said. "This is the first time that they've all kind of linked together a little bit according to their numbers."

Deprez said the boys utilized their knowledge of The Idaho Club.

"They've played it a lot ... and that definitely helped them, no doubt about it," he said.

Hattie Larson carded her lowest score (91) of the season to help the girls beat Coeur d'Alene by five strokes.

Larson placed second overall and Deprez said it was great to see her breakout.

"We've been working a lot on Hattie's golf game," he said, "and I felt like she was close every single event she was teeing it up at ... and finally it happen."

CeCe Deprez shot a 94 to secure third. Annaby Kanning posted a 102, Camille Neuder finished with a 103 and Audrey Sheffler had a 112.

"All of the girls played reasonably good golf," Deprez said, "and walked away with more optimism than pessimism after that round because of how difficult the golf course is."

Out of bounds borders every hole at The Idaho Club and water is in play on a number of them. The course was quite challenging for all golfers, and the windy, cooler than expected conditions didn't make it any easier.

Deprez was proud of the way his team moved on from the bad shots.

"The kids showed a lot of resiliency today," he said. "They knew it was going to be a long day."

The Bulldogs head to The Links Golf Club on Thursday for the Lakeland Invitational.
