LCSC men's golf team adds four recruits
The Lewis-Clark State College men’s golf team has signed four players for the 2010-11 season, including three players from Community Colleges of Spokane and Pullman’s Dillon Williams, who played this spring at North Idaho College.
Joining Williams are Kyler Gable of Hayden, Tyler Johnson of Coeur d’Alene and Jason Molner of Longview, Wash.
Williams, who is the son of Washington State University golf coach Walt Williams, will be a junior this fall. He will be the first NIC golfer to move on and play at a four-year school since NIC restarted its golf program five years ago.
Williams, who attended Pullman Christian High School, played in the No. 2 and No. 3 spots for the Cardinals during the spring.
Gable and Johnson were teammates at Coeur d’Alene High for coach Bryan Duncan. Gable’s best round is a 66 at the McCall Golf Course and his best round in a tournament is a 67, which he tied this past season with the Sasquatch. As a freshman, he helped SCC tie for the Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges tournament title with a big comeback on the second day.
Johnson was CCS’s top scorer at the Lewis-Clark State College Invitational in March at the Clarkston Golf & Country Club and helped the Sasquatch tie for second place in the team standings. Johnson’s second round score of 2-under-par 70 was the best on the day and placed him third overall. His career-best round is a 65 and he also shot 69 a number of times for his best college tournament round.
Molner attended Mark Morris High in Longview and his best round was a 65 on his home course at Mint Valley Golf Course. He shot a 67 as a freshman for his best tournament round at CCS.
The Warrior men’s golf team loses two seniors from this year’s squad, which placed second in the Frontier Conference and also had junior Connor McCracken win his second straight FC Player of the Year honor.
