Seaside boys golf on the green again

A long layoff didn’t slow down the Seaside High School boys golf team as they cruised to a 333-372 victory against Tillamook on Tuesday morning. The Seaside Seagulls were one putt short of having all five scorers in the 80s, and Seaside also saw their fourth different player lead the team in scoring.

Diego Sanchez led the way with a career-low score of 81. He was joined in the top three by Alex Arden (82) and Madden Wunderlich (84).

“We have now played five events and have had four different kids lead the team in scoring,” Seaside head coach Jim Poetsch said in a statement on Tuesday. “The team is really well-balanced and any of the five could shoot the low score for the day. ... Hopefully, we will continue to improve as we approach the postseason. ”

The team will participate in the Seaside Invitational on Tuesday at the Astoria Golf & Country Club.
