Golf team ties with Mount Vernon in mid-season home game

Friday Harbor Wolverine golf took on Mount Vernon Christian on the home course, tying the visiting Hurricanes, 188-188. Low scorer for Friday Harbor for the second week was Teagan August who tied with Ethan Havel with 44.

“In golf, it’s a big deal when you become good enough to make birdies. I compare it to hitting a home run in baseball or making a 3-point shot from downtown in basketball,” Coach Jerry Rice said. “In [last week’s] match, we had three players make birdies, Ethan Havel, Ian Volk and Tyler Fleming.”

Individual scores for the team were as follows: August, 44; Havel, 44; Joe Kaden, 50; Peter Kulseth, 50; Tyler Fleming, 52; Weston Swirtz, 52; Ben Dillery, 53; Ian Volk, 53; Jack Mason, 55; Sander VanHamersfeld, 55; Chase Wilson, 57; Torsten Raichlen, 61; Blaze Borgquist, 67; Jonah Strasbourger, 67; Charlie Zehner, 68; Isaac Brumsickle, 69; Miles Williamson, 69; and Nick Copley, 70.

The Wolverines traveled to Mount Vernon to take on Mount Vernon Christian again on Tuesday, April 23. The teams’ next home game is against the Lummi Nation at 4:15 p.m. on Thursday, April 25.

“We’re halfway through the season and making good improvement,” Rice said. “By the time district comes around, we hope to have our A games in good shape.”

Wolverines Golf also traveled to La Conner on April 18, to face off against the Braves, losing 201-230.

Peter Kuseth was the low score medalist for the boys with a total of 43. The individual scores for the team were as follows: Kuseth, 43; Weston Swirtz, 48; Teagan August, 52; Isaac Brumsickle, 54; Ethan Havel, 56; Ben Dillary, 62; Jack Mason, 65; Ian Volk, 65; and Tyler Fleming, 68.
