CLINTON — Easton Valley handled the wind better than Prince of Peace on Monday by sweeping the Irish 186-217 in the boys golf dual and 224-273 in girls competition at Valley Oaks Golf Course.

The River Hawks’ Blaine Volquardsen won on the boys side with a 5-over-par 41. Volquardsen ended the round with back-to-back pars to hold off runner-up Connor Evers of Prince of Peace, who bogeyed hole No. 9 en route to a 42-shot day.

“It’s more mental than anything; I just wasn’t focused,” Evers said. “The wind just got to me.”

Blake Bormann of Easton Valley also shot a 42, but lost in a cardback to Evers for the No. 2 spot. Bormann birdied the par-3 fourth hole with a 40-foot putt on the green.

Evers, however, had trouble on the par-5 sixth hole. In the season opener, he recorded a 9 on it but settled for a 7 on Monday.

River Hawks senior Marshall Driscoll finished fourth with a 51 despite starting the round with a double-bogey and a bogey.

On the girls side, Irish sophomore Caitlyn Jacobs was the dual medalist with a 50-shot performance, including a birdie on No. 8. Jacobs did not have a par in the round.

The River Hawks took the next four top spots. Kalli Miller had two pars for a 54, Savanna Lippens shot 55 and Kiley Petersen shot 53.
