POST FALLS — Grant Potter shot a two-over-par 74 and won medalist honors in a card-off, leading Coeur d’Alene’s boys to victory Monday at the Post Falls Invitational at The Highlands Golf Course.
Coeur d’Alene shot 301 and won by 38 strokes over Sandpoint.
Leading the way for the Bulldogs were Jake Samuels who shot an 81 and Rusty Lee who shot an 82, a personal best score.
In the girls tournament, not all of the players were able to finish 18 holes due to darkness, so their event was scored as a nine-hole tourney. Scoring a personal best for the Bulldogs was Claire Loutzenhizer, who shot a 93 over 18 holes.
Lee had a great tournament, with everything coming together for him, Sandpoint golf coach Mike Deprez said. "He had a great round."
Loutzenhiser also had a great round and was able to slow things down on the course.
"I'm very happy with the team and where they are," Deprez said.
The Bulldogs will play at the Coeur d'Alene Invitational on Friday with the boys teams playing at Avondale and the girls playing and the Hayden Lakes Country Club. Monday, Sandpoint hosts a tournament at the Idaho Club, followed by districts, also being held this year at the Idaho Club.
