Klamath Union surges past Ashland for conference title

At Klamath Falls, the 20-stroke cushion Ashland had going into the final Southern Sky Conference tournament evaporated after Klamath Union recorded the two lowest individual scores to overtake the Grizzlies for the SSC crown at Harbor Links Golf Course.

Medalist Jackson Kensinger recorded a 1-over-par 73 and Seth Reynolds shot a 74 as the Pelicans beat the Grizzlies out by six strokes. Klamath Union shot 331 as a team.

Matt Naylor led the charge for the Grizzlies with an 84. The Grizzlies finished second on the day with a team score of 357 and wound up taking second in the SSC.

After taking a 9 on the first hole, Eagle Point freshman Hunter DeLange ended up carding an 83 — the third-best score of the afternoon. Thanks to DeLange's recovery, the Eagles took third in the tournament and SSC.

Crater's Dennis Azevedo registered the fifth-lowest score with an 85. The Comets finished fourth in conference.
