Friday Harbor 4th, Orcas 6th in Islands Cup - SLIDESHOW added

For the first time in five years Friday Harbor’s high school sailing team were able to sleep in their own beds for an Islands Cup, an annual springtime regatta that rotates around the Salish Sea. The event was held at Roche Harbor, which proved the perfect backdrop for 16 teams from Olympia to Bellingham, and without whose support the event would not have been possible. 


Lobos beat Wolverines 142-146 in match at Lopez Island Golf Course

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.
