DALLAS -- Dallas' golf team continued to climb the Pac-9 Conference ladder, finishing fourth in a league tournament on April 19 at Oak Knoll.

The Dragons had a four-man, 18-hole total of 340. That left them behind Tualatin (291), Canby (303) and Tigard (321) and just ahead of Forest Grove (347). Dallas had finished fifth in the previous Pac-9 tournament.

"We're getting more consistent as a team," Dragons coach Kevin Moen said. "We're scoring better. We're showing improvement. Every week, we're getting a little better.

"We're showing a lot better course management. We're putting the ball in play, hitting more fairways, hitting more greens. Our short game is improving, too. We're seeing a lot fewer putts. We're seeing a lot more one- and two-putts and a lot less three- and two-putts. The overall improvement has been good to see."

Corey Jones had the best and most symmetrical score for the Dragons, shooting 40 on both sides and finishing at 80.

Brian Aebi shot an 83 for Dallas and was followed by Tyler Brostrom at 84 and Kyle Bonnet at 93.

"That's a good score for Corey," Moen said. "Nobody else had a really outstanding scores. It was just better, lower and more consistent scores."

The Dragons hope to remain upwardly mobile in a Pac-9 tournament on Wednesday, April 27 at the OGA Course in Woodburn.

Dallas then will travel to Tok-A-Tee near Blue River on April 22 for the Forest Grove Invitational.

"That's an outstanding golf course," Moen said. "We've been going to this tournament for years. Silverton, Dallas and Forest Grove used to host it, and now Forest Grove's kind if taken it over for the last three years. It'll be fun. It's a great challenge for the kids."
