California High School freshman Dylan Kramel competed at the Class 2 Sectional Golf Tournament Monday at Eagle Knoll Golf Club, Hartsburg, where he finished 37th with 100. Kramel was the lone Pinto to advance to sectionals when he posted a 91 to place 22nd at the Class 2 District 4 Golf Tournament May 5 at Eugene.

"Dylan has been playing good golf the entire season," California Coach Doug Miller said. "He tried to play it smart and do all the right things at sectionals, but he got the shanks midway through, and once that happens, it puts you in a bad position. All good golfers get them every now and then.

Blair Oaks finished team competition at sectionals in first place with 334, followed by Eugene with 347. Both will advance to the Class 2 state golf tournament at Silo Ridge Golf Club, Bolivar, May 19-20. Palmyra placed third with 351; Macon fourth with 377; and Centralia fifth with 378.

Kory Franks, Blair Oaks, and Walker Kesterson, Southern Boone, were co-medalists with 74 each.

Miller added, "It meant a lot to both Dylan and me that Tyler Elliott came to support him. Tyler has been a great leader and role model for the kids and I appreciate that he made time to come support Dylan. We're going to miss Tyler and the other two seniors, Cole George and John Wolken."

The Pintos will wrap up the season with the CHS Golf Banquet at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at Pizza Hut, California.

Looking ahead to next season, Miller said, "With all of our young players coming back and some new freshmen coming in, it looks like we'll have a varsity and JV team next season. We will definitely miss our seniors."
