** Boys’ Golf – KingCo Champs and KingCo Tournament Champs! **
********************* Headed to STATE!!! ************************
The boys golf team had a great week by winning the KingCo Medalist Tournament, a 36-hole grind where they displayed Determination, Resiliency and Grit. On Tuesday, the boys played as a team of five and brought frosh Kaelan Williams, who played as an individual and barely missed the cut by one, shooting a very respectable 83.
In TEAM play, where the best four scores of five count for the team, the team shot a 299.
Frosh Elliot Ro shot 82, co-captain Chris Zamani finished with 12 straight pars to shoot 78, Johnny Fitzgibbons shot 77, Luke Schlecht shot 75 with a beautiful birdie on 18 and senior co-captain Nathan Yocam came out of day one in second by shooting 69!
The Wolves were down one stroke to Issaquah 299 to 298.
On Thursday (day two of the tourney), the determined Wolves went to work. Elliot Ro improved two strokes to shoot 80, Luke Schlecht shot 80 and had an eagle 3 on the par five 7th hole. Chris Zamani improved three strokes from day one and shot 75. Johnny “Houdini” Fitzgibbons shot a very hard-earned 75 and Nathan Yocam showed some real mental toughness and shot another 69 (31 on the back nine) and was the low over-all score and medalist with an impressive 138!!
Nathan was very impressive in the final group by walking-in a 35 foot EAGLE Putt on number 18 where the gallery was heard through-out the entire golf course when it exploded into applause!
The Team will head to the WIAA 4A State Tournament in Spokane May 23 & 24, 2023
