Having just returned from the state tournament in Tumwater, it is time to take a look at the 2019 golf season.
Following a second place at the A/BB/B Bi/Tri-District Tournament at Jackson Park Golf Course, all four women qualified for state while earning a second place, closely behind Overlake. Both our competing men also qualified for the state tourney after taking fourth out of 10 teams at the BB/B Bi/Tri-District Tournament at The Gallery Golf Course.
There were 64 schools represented by 80 women and 40 men; our gents came close to make it to the second day of competition, while all four women survived the cut and made it to the second round. By the time all was done, the women were second among B teams, third among BB/B teams and ninth overall, the third time they’ve done so in three years. All the players had personal records while playing or practicing, with all the women having a best round ever while competing, with Zoe Reinmuth having a best round of 9;, Kate Combs, 93; Shayna Gruenwald, 89; and Siri Dye, 88. Everybody involved sees these performances as a success., especially in the light of the Lopezians’ exceptional sportsmanship.
Although we are losing Zoe and Kate after graduation, we look forward to next season.
