Jack Hess driving on number 5 at Tumwater Valley Golf Club

Jack Hess, Sophomore, returned to the high school state tournament and captured an 11th place finish.  Jack turned his game around late in the season, by winning the Friday Harbor Invitational just two weeks ago.  Placing 7th in state in 2023 and 11th in 2024 speaks volumes or this young man.  He is a fine golfer and with two more years to go in high school we can expect some great golf before he graduates.

Akira Tokunaga, Freshman, played in her first state tournament and picked up an 18th place finish.

This is an impressive performance for a freshman, scoring a consistent 102 the first day and a 100 on day two.  Both Jack and Akira thought they could have played better but this is a big accomplishment to make it this far in state competition at such a young age.  We are extremely proud of both young student athletes.

One of the other players who qualified for the State tournament was Junior, Morgan Douglass.  She didn’t play her best and missed the cut to play in the second day of the tournament.  Morgan has a solid game and we expect another visit to the big show before she graduates next year. 

Junior, Fisher Goosman, won his spot as first alternate in a sudden death playoff the week before.  Unfortunately, no one stubbed their toe and all the contestants showed up for their assigned tee time.  Fisher has one more year of golf on the team and looks forward to another go at making the state tournament. 

Speaking of student athletes, Friday Harbor High School golf team won the Academic State Championship for having the highest GPA of any team in the state.  Congratulation for all that hard work; The entire golf team are champions, all 19 of them.

Joe Anderson from Orcas was only one shot back with a fine 76.  It’s a great time for Jack to be shooting his lowest scores as we’re about to head to the state tournament.

Friday Harbor High School Ladies Golf team wins by 2 shots;

Golf report from Coach Jack Rice on the Friday Harbor vs Mount Vernon Christian Golf Match Thursday March 14, 2024 at SJ Golf & Tennis Club.

Team Picture right before our first match with a few of our new golf bags purchased by the San Juan Golf and Tennis Foundation

As you can see, we have a very young team.  We have had a slow start to this season because of the bad weather.  Jack, Finn, Sam and PJ all played well for as little as we have been able to practice.  Returning Senior Ryan is knocking on the door along with Fisher.  First year player Cyres, after only a couple weeks of golf, is showing strong potential.  The men lost by a little more than a handful to the always strong MVC men’s team, while the lady’s team, led by Akira, beat MVC by 2 shots.
