Camas golfers finish strong at districts
Tuesday, October 16, 2012
Brian Humphreys showed flashes of brilliance in his first high school district golf tournament on Oct. 8 and 9, but the Camas freshman became a spectator watching Union senior Ian Spicer conquer the Tri-Mountain golf course in Ridgefield.
Spicer nailed seven birdies and an eagle in the final round, and finished with a 5-under par score of 67 strokes. He almost double-eagled the 18th hole from around 250 yards away. The ball stopped rolling about 4 feet from the hole. Spicer tapped it in for an eagle and won the district championship. Humphreys finished in second place, five strokes ahead of his adversary.
“You can’t get mad at yourself when you play well and the other guy has the round of his life,” Humphreys said. “It was inspiring to watch. I want to be the district champion next year. That means I have to play whoever I’m up against, and match him shot-for-shot.”
