Richland High graduate Hope Neidhold fired a second-round 81 at Bandon Trails on Monday to clinch medalist honors for Columbia Basin College at the Southwestern Oregon Community College Invitational golf tournament in Oregon.

Neidhold, who shot a 74 on Sunday, finished 19 strokes ahead of the next closest golfer, Spokane’s Kelcie Gardner.

As a team, the Hawks took the title, and they finished 8-0 in regular-season play.

On the men’s side, host SWOCC took the team title and Tyler Swinton of SWOCC won a three-way playoff to take medalist honors at the Old McDonald course. The CBC men were led by Brandon Cox, who finished with a 158.
