Golf: Wolves remain perfect in league

In one of their final league warm-ups before the postseason, Sequim’s golf squads showed why they’re atop the Olympic League standings.

On April 23, Sequim’s boys dominated a tough North Mason squad by 32 points while a day later the Wolves’ girls topped the Bulldogs by 35 shots, despite missing their No. 1 and No. 3 golfers.

Ryan O’Mera led Sequim’s boys (6-0 in league play, 6-1 overall) last week by shooting an even-par 72 for medalist honors to top North Mason ace Andy Renne, who shot an 81.

Closely backing O’Mera were teammates Casey Torres (85), Anthony Pinza (86), Brendon Hudson (87) and Frank Catelli (90).

Missing Hailey Estes, the top Olympic League player, and top-three player Brianna Kettel, Sequim’s girls still had enough firepower to knock off North Mason 279 to 314 on April 24.

Freshman Caitlin Stofferahn earned medalist honors with a nine-hole round of 49 followed by Elisa Sallee at 51.

Freshman Kaylee Ditlefsen played her first varsity golf match and bettered her previous best nine-hole score by five shots for a 61, a score matched by teammate Maddy Fisher.

“I am really proud of how the girls are progressing through out the season,” Sequim girls’ coach Garrett Smithson said. “All of them are putting up better numbers as we get closer to the post season. I feel it is realistic that we could have four or five girls go to state this season.”

Sequim’s boys are at Bremerton on May 2 and join the girls in hosting Klahowya on May 3.

Sequim’s girls were slated to play at Bremerton on May 1.

Both squads are set to play on Monday, May 7, at the Olympic League Tournament, hosted at Gold Mountain in Bremerton. Top players from the league tourney advance to the 2A district tournament, scheduled for May 14.
