Friday Harbor finally completed its second match of the season after the last three outings were canceled due to bad weather. Lopez Island High School was kind enough to let our team bring 14 players for the day of golf. It’s a great experience to be on the travel squad and get the opportunity to play a different golf course. Lopez came out on top with a score of 142 to Friday Harbor 146. Lopez Senior, Tobin Arden set the pace for the day with a 1 over par 35 on his home course, Lopez Golf Club. Dylan Posenjak was low for the Wolverines with a 46.
Wolverine Golf Team takes the ferry to Lopez Island to play against the Lobos.
Three freshmen made the trip; Ethan Havel 53, Lucas Wickman 57 and Tyler Fleming 60. It’s so great to see these young players coming on so fast. We had four returning lettermen, Levi Doenges 50, Peter Kulseth 50, Ian Volk 51 and Weston Swartz 51 all knocking on the door to break into the 40s.
The real story for the day is the girl’s team from Lopez. Last year Lopez sent 5 players to the State tournament. It looks like they are on a good track to make a return trip to the Big Show again this year. Their top four ladies all shot in the 40s, Siri Dye 48, Ana-Kate Drahn 48, Kate Combs 48 and Naomi Vliet 49.
The Next two players each shot a fine 51, Shayna Gruenwald and Nora Zapalac. The top six girls from Lopez beat almost every boy on the Friday Harbor team. Wow, that’s pretty impressive! With 23 boys out for the Friday Harbor Team, I jokingly offered the Lopez Coach, Tetu, who has 16 girls out for golf, “I’ll trade you 5 boys for 5 girls”. He just smiled!
With Spring Break next week we will be out of action for the next couple weeks. We hope to make a trip during Spring Break to play a practice round at the District Tournament site on Whidbey Island.
Golf Match April 3, 2018 at Lopez Island Golf Course. Friday Harbor 146, Lopez 142.
