Prep roundup: River’s Bartek wins Chieftain Invitational by three strokes

Union beats Mountain View for team title



The fact that Chloe Bartek won the Chieftain Invitational wasn’t too surprising. The fact that the Columbia River senior won by just three strokes is a bit surprising.

Bartek, who has won a couple of district titles by double-digit strokes had to pull away late to beat Prairie’s Jamie Stilwell by three shots. Bartek shot a 77; Stilwell finished with an 80.

Bartek shot a 35 on the first nine, but Stilwell was just two shots back with a 37. Stilwell closed within in one stroke after 15 holes, but Bartek picked up a strong on 16 and 17 for the final margin.

Hockinson’s Kelsey Whiles was third (84) and Mountain View’s Abby Kadrmas was fourth (86).

Union took the team title with a score of 364. Mountain View (370) was second, followed by Battle Ground (381), Skyview (386), Camas (388) and Hockinson (389).
