TD’s Tyler Vassar and Ridgeview’s Justin McMahon ended up with an 82 apiece to wind up tied for fourth place in the individual standings.

Parker McMahon (Ridgeview) placed sixth after his 83 and Ren Teppert (Hood River Valley) was seventh following an 84.

Also for the Riverhawks, Jonathan Snodgrass carded a personal-best 88 and Spencer Taylor continued his solid play with a 98.

Ridgeview won the team competition with a score of 329, followed by The Dalles (347), Crook County (351), and Hood River Valley (364).

By virtue of four consecutive IMC tournament victories, the Ridgeview Ravens captured the IMC District Championship and automatically qualify for the State Tournament.

Buerger of Ridgeview is the overall individual District Champion.

Vassar and Telles were the two individual state qualifiers.

The Dalles, Hood River Valley and Crook County qualify as teams for the regional tournament Monday and Tuesday at Indian Creek Golf Course in Hood River.
