   In the Kingco AAA boys golf medalist tournament last Thursday, the Cedarcrest team beat Sammamish by 8 points and Liberty and Skyline by 10. The tournament was played on the long Snohomish course.
   Derek Berg tied for second with a 1 under par 71, a great score. Sean Beveridge got the team excited with a terrific 76, which was a tie for 7th place. The players knew that with that score he would also be going to Districts.
   Marc Medley came in with an 80 which was a tie for 21st, which put him in a playoff, the last spot going to Districts. It was great to see the team and about 40 other players following these four golfers fighting for the last two spots. Marc had a great drive down the middle, but had a little trouble after that. He didn't make the cut, but had a good day and helped the team. Next year he will do it.
   Other golfers who helped Cedarcrest beat three teams were Jason Kamada with an 88 and Robin Spayde with a 91.
   This Wednesday Derek and Sean will play District Competition at Druids Glen.
   On Oct. 8, Cedarcrest played against Skyline on the par 37 front nine of Carnation Golf Course. Derek Berg was the medalist with a par 37. Sean Beveridge had 39 and Marc Medley came in with a 41.
   With a tie of 200-200 and with the boys soaked to the skin, they had to play a sudden death playoff. Five against five played the first hole again and took the total score, with Cedarcrest losing.
   On Oct. 13, Cedarcrest played an 18-hole tournament in the pouring rain again at Carnation. The team's top three players did great. Derek Berg tied for medalist with a two under par 70, Sean Beveridge and Marc Medley each shot 75 but once again the team couldn't win with just three players coming in. through.
   Jason Kamada shot an 88, Robin Spayde a 91 and Joe Wasem a 92.
   The Sammamish team's number one golfer had three eagles to tie Derek. Sammamish's number 2 tied Sean, and Marc Medley beat his man by six, but then it got tough. Cedarcrest lost 387-399.
