Three opponents on Monday couldn’t do what 38 had tried previously: beat Sequim’s boys golf squad.
Led by junior Paul Jacobsen’s 2-over-par 72, SHS’s boys ran their league match winning streak to 41 with sweep in a four-school match at The Cedars at Dungeness on April 15.
Not to be outdone, Sequim’s girls also picked up a sweep to run their record to 6-2.
With Jacobsen’s teammate Blake Wiker tied for second (with Chimacum’s Logan Storm) and SHS freshman Ben Sweet shooting an 82 for fourth, Sequim’s boys tallied 317 team points to out-pace North Mason (392), Port Townsend (411) and Chimacum (419).
The win gives Sequim’s boys (8-0) their fourth consecutive Olympic League title.
Playing the par 36 front nine at The Cedars, Sequim’s girls got a second-place finish from Yana Hoesel (45, tying her career low nine-hole round) and third from Maddie Uranga (47) to tally 199 team points to out-play North Mason (222), Port Townsend (258) and Chimacum (288).
“The playing conditions were great and the weather cooperated,” SHS girls coach Garrett Smithson said.
