Friday Harbor Wolverines golf beats Orcas Vikings 258-264

  • Written by Wolverine Coach Jack Rice

Golf Update by Coach Jack Rice: Friday Harbor opened the golf season against Orcas, one of our arch rivals. It was a great match and came down to the last few holes to determine a winner. For the first match of the season both teams played extremely well.

Friday Harbor Senior Dylan Posenjak was medalist for the match with a fine 42. He was followed by junior, Peter Kulseth, sophomore, Levi Doenges and freshman, Ethan Havel. All these golfers played for the team last year.

The golf team allows 8th graders to practice and play with the team. Levi and Ethan both took advantage of the opportunity last spring; we can see how this has really paid off. Rounding out the top 5 was senior, Sean Chevalier, first year golfer. Sean joined the team after the lacrosse team disbanded for lack of enough players. I wish he would have come out for golf as a freshman; he has a lot of natural talent.

The Orcas team has a lot of potential this year. Returning letterman Leaf Gustafson turned in a nice round of 45. The twins, Maia and Zoe Lewis Shunk, are back as only sophomores. They both have fine games and I expect them both to compete at the State level this year.

As Coach, I am really impressed with the athletic ability of the team this year. With the rain and poor spring weather, we have only had about two weeks of practice. When I look at the depth of this team, it is impossible for me to pick the top 6 players. We have Joe, Ian, Weston, Chase, Julian, Alen and Isaac all knocking at the door. This is a great problem to have.

We will travel to Anacortes on Thursday to take on Mt. Vernon Christian. They have given us the OK to bring two teams, so the top 12 will get to see action on a different golf course.
