Tourney crowns champs, raises playground funds

A pair of teams tied for the championship while raising funds for the Dream Playground in Port Angeles this past weekend at The Cedars at Dungeness in Sequim.

The foursome of Alex Atwell, Tim Lusk, Danny Romero and Brandon Rux shot a 57, as did the team of Landon Cray, Richard Kiesel, Bob Nordberg and Pat Ryder, to claim top honors at the event that helps fund a major rebuild of portions of the community playground that burned to the ground in December.

Sponsors 7 Cedars Resort and Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe donated their fees plus $5,000 back to the playground effort, PGA professional Chad Wagner note, pushing the total raised to about $15,000.

Three teams tied for third after finishing a single shot back at 58: Wagner-Steve Kiele-Zac Moore-Devin Scott; Eric Hegge-Ryan Oase-Rick Smith-Steve Wilson, and Sid Krumpe-Joe Luce-Sam Luce-Mark Mitrovich.
