PREP GOLF: Lake City sweeps regional

Print Article

LOREN BENOIT/Press Lake City High’s Kyla Currie hits her drive on the 5th hole during Monday’s 5A Region 1 tournament at Coeur d’Alene Golf Club. Currie shot an 81 to earn medalist honors and lead the Timberwolves to the regional title.


COEUR d’ALENE — It was Lake City’s home course, and it was the Timberwolves’ day at the 5A Region 1 boys and girls golf tournaments Monday at the Coeur d’Alene Golf Club.

Cameron Johnson shot a 2-under-par 70 to lead Lake City to the boys title, and Kyla Currie shot an 81 to lead the Timberwolves to their third straight regional title.

“I am just so proud of this group of boys,” Lake City boys golf coach Troy Anderson said. “The way they performed under pressure; especially these (four) seniors — their experience kinda showed today. Coeur d’Alene was the team to beat today, but we’ve been talking about it — this is our time, we’re hosting (regionals) this year. Why can’t we do this?”

“I am super proud of both the girls and the boys,” Lake City girls golf coach Corey Owen said. “This is the first time since 2001 that both the girls and the boys have won the district title. It was a pretty special day to accomplish all of this on our home course. The girls have worked really hard this season so for them to cap the year off with our third district title in a row is pretty great.”

Johnson chipped in from some 15 yards off the green on the par-4 12th hole, starting a run of three straight birdies.

“It totally propelled his round,” Anderson said. “He was a totally different golfer after that. He went from a pretty good round to something special.”

Coeur d’Alene’s boys qualified for state by finishing second, four strokes behind Lake City. Sam Johnson, the No. 5 golfer, tied for fourth for the Vikings with a 76.

“Not surprising,” Coeur d’Alene coach Bryan Duncan said. “You’ve got Lake City playing on their home course, they have probably the three best golfers in the district (Johnson, Ryan Chapman, who shot 77, and Davon Sandford, who shot 76). And their fourth came through and topped us. Our depth did not pay off today. Our kids did not have their ‘A’ game today; I think they pressed a little bit.”

Jacob Glenn of Post Falls also qualified for state, finishing second with a 74.

Lewiston’s girls also qualified for state, as did Martina Hicks of Coeur d’Alene, who tied for third.

State is next Monday and Tuesday at Highland Golf Course in Pocatello.
