Reese Tangney and Jack Hess win medalist honors at Friday Harbor vs Lopez golf match

  • Written by Jack Rice

Friday Harbor High School Golf Coach Jack Rice sent in this report on the March 24 FH vs Lopez Golf Match at San Juan Colf Club.

Friday Harbor 's Jack Hess and Reese Tangney won medalist honors for the men’s and women’s division.

For the first match of the season, in cold and wet conditions, the local team posted some good scores.  This was the first match for many of the players and with nine of them being only 8th and 9th, graders, they played well.  Some of these 8th graders are so small their driver is taller than they are.  But I’ll tell ya, you don’t want to get into a long drive contest with them! Because our schools are in the smallest division,

We are allowed to let 8th graders play on the high school golf team.  Jack Hess as a freshman already has a year’s experience behind him making it all the way to Bi District as an 8th grader.  Experience like this will pay big dividends as we go through the season.  Junior Reese Tangney turned out for golf for the first time this year and took home medalist honors in the Ladies division.

I am proud when the team plays well and looks well on the course.  With all the rain coats and heavy sweaters on you would never know the team was all decked out in their new golf shirts.  A big thank you to the members and management at the San Juan Golf Club for all their support.  - Coach Jack Rice
