Co-medalist, team victory, and, oh yeah, a hole-in-one.

That was Woodland senior Brooklyn Gaston’s Wednesday on the front 9 at Lewis River Golf Course in Woodland.

Gaston aced the No. 3 hole from about 132 yards out with a 7-iron on her way to a 7-over-par 42.

Her 42 was matched by teammate Khloe Rist, also a senior, for co-medalist honors in the non-league match with Battle Ground that Woodland won 207-232.

Battle Ground’s Ava Robertson had the Tigers’ low score with a 45.

Gaston has qualified for state last past two seasons and has three more duel matches before trying to reach state one last time.
