The Eureka Loggers continued their good start to the new boys golf season with another strong showing at this week’s Cougar Classic in Redding.

Competing at the Gold Hills Golf Club on Monday, the Loggers placed fourth out of 13 teams, with sophomore Talon Vigil leading the way once again.

Vigil, who has the best early-season round in H-DNL play with a 77 in Fortuna last week, shot an 88 in Redding to pace a young Loggers team that features four sophomores and two freshmen. 

And it’s a team that is showing plenty of promise despite its young age.

“It was a great experience for our young team to play such a difficult course and experience the pressure of a tough tournament,” head coach Karen Griffith said. “I’m pleased with their performance.”

The team’s two freshmen — Andrew Stewart and Jerome Lyons — also had impressive days on a course the coach described as “difficult with very dry fairways and hard packed fast greens.”

Andrew Stewart shot a 91, while Lyons shot a 94.

The Loggers return to league play this week, and they will host the third round of action at the Eureka Municipal Golf Course on Thursday.
