WORLEY — Micah Young and Taylor Mire led Sandpoint at the Dizzy Bird Invite held at Circling Raven Golf Course Thursday.
The Sandpoint girls team, led by Mire’s 80, finished second, in front of Lewiston and behind Coeur d’Alene. Head coach Mike Deprez said he was particularly pleased with Reagan Samuels and Claire Loutzenhiser’s performances.
“Reagan and Claire are both finding consistency in their swing and short game,” Deprez said. “All the girls hit the ball great today; holes two and four did sabotage some really good scores, however.”
For the boys, Micah Young scored an 83, not too far off some of the top players in the state. Logan Roos had an eagle en route to a score of 96. Deprez said Tyler Weisz had a steady day as well, shooting a score of 91.
The Sandpoint golf team will be back in action Friday, Sept. 22. The girls will head to the Hayden Lakes Country Club while the boys will tee off at the Avondale Golf Club.

Post Falls 3, Sandpoint 0
SANDPOINT — Sandpoint fell to a surging Post Falls squad 3-0 (19-25, 14-25, 17-25) at Les Rogers Court Thursday.
The Bulldogs stayed within reach, but gave up a four-point run late in the first set which allowed the Trojans to capture the 25-19 set win. In sets two and three, Sandpoint was not quite able to close the gap on the Trojans.
Post Falls is 6-1 on the year, their only loss coming against a tough Gonzaga Prep team.
Aubree Lane recorded a team-high 10 kills for the Bulldogs. Vivian Platte had some key kills in the third set; she finished with seven kills overall. Head coach Piper Wahlin said she was impressed with the play of Makenzie Eden, who had two blocks and three aces. On defense, Haley Hustead-Swaim led the way with 15 digs while libero Gretta Beck recorded nine of her own.
“Post Falls showed up as disciplined as always and put our defense to the test,” Wahlin said. “Our performance was much stronger than Tuesday’s, but we’re still looking for our attackers to be more confident and efficient.”
Sandpoint (2-5) will get a bit of a break, their next match will be against Lakeland Thursday, Sept. 21 on the road.

Priest River 3, St. Maries 0
ST. MARIES – Lizzie McCracken scored two first-half goals in the Spartans 3-0 conference win over the Lumberjacks at City Park Wednesday.
Also tacking on a goal for Priest River in the second half was Marley Burgess-Duquette. On defense, Haley Braee, Sam Pound and Clara Kennedy led the way, even compiling a few shots on goal each.
“We were strong defensively all game long even with a couple of new players getting time, one of which had never played in a soccer game before yesterday,” assistant coach Nick Tucker said. “On top of that, what our defense did better the last couple games was not just getting the takeaway, but turning it into a pass to one of our midfielders or forwards.”
It was the first time this season the girls had a full field plus one substitute on the bench.
Priest River (4-5, 2-1) will face Medical Lake on the road Thursday, Sept. 21
