Three Falcons qualify for 1A state tournament | GIRLS GOLF

May 17th, 2013 at Fri, 17th, 2013 at 7:52 am by benwatanabe

Congratulations are in order for Jenna Kaik, Hannah Cotton and Rosie Portillo.

All three Falcons qualified for the 1A state girls golf tournament after scoring some of their best scores of the season Tuesday. 

South Whidbey made it as a team to the 1A tri-district tournament in Bremerton at the Gold Mountin Golf Club. The Falcons’ entire varsity team moved on to the tri-district round after winning the 1A District tournament behind a champion’s performance by Kaik, who tied for first place with 82 strokes through 18 holes at the North Bellingham Golf Course.

The Falcons claimed the team title at the tri-district tournament, too. So here are South Whidbey’s girls golf accolades, thus far: Cascade Conference champions, District 1 champions and tri-district champions. The only team award left is 1A champions.

South Whidbey will take its shots at the Lake Spanaway Golf Course on May 21-22. The field is cut in half after the first round and first day.

Reporter for the South Whidbey Record. Currently I cover Langley, South Whidbey Fire/EMS, the South Whidbey Parks & Recreation District, Clinton and sports. On any given night or any given weekday, I'm likely watching a baseball, basketball or football game on TV while reading Mother Jones, Esquire, The New York Times, The Seattle Times, The Daily Herald or scrolling through Twitter. If I can go sailing, I do. Fishing is a recently discovered hobby, but there are few things as exciting as getting a fish on the line and the battle between urgency and patience to haul it in. I don't much care for pets, but probably want to pet your dog or hold your cat.
