Coach Jack Rice reported: All six of the Friday Harbor team members finished in the top 10 at the 1A2B District Tournament. Thirty golfers teed it up to win one of the 21 spots in the Bi-District Tournament played next week at the same golf course. It’s been a long time since Friday Harbor advanced so many golfers, never in my 10 years as Coach.
In the next few days each player will be laying out a plan on how he can play this course better next week. What really impressed me is how 5 of the 6 FH players improved their scores on the back nine holes.
Sophomore Ethan Havel continues to lead the team with a 3rd place finish. Jack Mason finished 7th as a freshman. Junior Weston Swirtz had train wrecks on two holes on the back nine; he was in contention to win the tournament.
For the Friday Harbor team to take six of the top 10 places in the District Tournament is something special.
