Congratulations to Friday Harbor High School freshman Jack Hess for winning one of the coveted allocations to the high school State Tournament. Freshman Finn Graham along with his teammates junior Ryan Rautenberg and 8th-grader Sam Herda came up just short of making the trip to the Big Show. For such a young team they put in a great performance.

We are looking forward to a solid golf performance from young Jack Hess next week. Tumwater Valley Golf is the site of the state tournament and is similar to our local club here on San Juan. Jack’s game is improving every week and the more competitive rounds he can experience the better he will perform.

It’s a big deal to make it this far in the high school golf competition, I am proud of every player on the team.

Wolverine sophomore Morgan Douglass played her best golf of the season and finished 5th in the girls Tri-District tournament and secured her spot in the high school state tournament. Teammates junior Reese Tangney and 8th-grader Akira Tokunaga didn’t make the 9-hole cut that allowed them to finish the round. The girls’ team is also very young and they have a lot of golf left in their high school careers.

Editor's Note: Orcas Island's golf team has four boys - Josh Spinner, TJ Liblik, Tommy Anderson-Cleveland, and Sam Sutton - advancing to the state tournament. Orcas Island girls golf team has three golfers advancing - Lili Malo, Celia Groeninger,  Alina Daoust. Lopez Island girls golf team has three golfers going to state - Melissa Valencia and Naeva Flora, plus Amelia Patino  as the alternate.
