Lynden’s Crabtree opens with strong performance

Lynden’s boys’ golfer Alex Crabtree got spring sports season started by shooting a 74 on a wet and windy Wednesday, March 11, at Homestead Golf Course.

The Lions won the non-league meet over Burlington-Edison and Blaine. Lynden scored a 459, Burlington-Edison got a 474 and Blaine finished third with a 587.

“Under the conditions, it was a real positive day,” Lynden coach Russ Dorr said in a phone interview. “We got a lot of work to do, but I really like the way they’re working hard.”

The Tigers’ Connor Atkinson shot an 80, as did Lynden’s Ezra Arneson.

“It was good to get the first meet out of the way,” Dorr said. “We learned a great deal. It was a super learning situation. Now, we know where we need to go.”
