Golf: SHS boys continue streak on links

One Sequim squad is back on track while another keeps its unbeaten streak alive.

The Wolves swept both boys and girls matches against Port Angeles at the Peninsula Golf Club on March 27.

Sequim’s boys got a solid performance from its top six players in a 176-188 victory (low score wins), with Paul Jacobsen leading the way with a 3-over round of 39.

It’s the third time Jacobsen has earned medalist honors in as many matches, as the Wolves improved to 3-0 and ran their league win streak to 36 matches.

Second place went to Sequim’s Blake Wiker and Port Angeles’ Skylar Cobb with rounds of 41. Nate Darke of Port Angeles was fourth with a 46.

Sequim rounded out their varsity scores with freshmen Ben Sweet and Dom Riccobene at 48, Garrett Hoesel with a 49 and Liam Payne at 51.

The Wolves also picked up a win over Kingston at home on March 26, topping the Buccaneers 157-209.

Jacobsen again led the way with an even-par 35. Wiker — despite coming off an illness — was second at a 2-over 37 while Payne was third at 41. Rounding out Sequim’s varsity six were Sweet (44), Riccobene (45) and Hoesel (49).

SHS girls go to 2-1

Sequm’s girls rebounded from a loss in their season opener to Klahowya on March 21 — their first league loss in two seasons — with wins over Kingston and Port Angeles.

Against the Bucs on March 25, Delaney Olson of Kingston earned medalist honors with a 45 but a deep Sequim team, led by Brittany Gale’s 46, prevailed, 197-231.

Jessica German was third (49), Maddie Uranga fourth (50) and Yana Hoesel fifth (51). JoNell Hill shot a 55 and Delaney Nucci a 58 to round out Sequim’s scorers.

Two days later at the Peninsula Golf Club, Hoesel took medalist honors with a nine-hole round of 49 as the Wolves topped the Roughriders 219-261.

Uranga was second with a 55 while Gale and German tied for fourth with rounds of 58. Nucci (60) and Hill (62) rounded out the scoring for the Wolves.

Port Angeles, coached by Sequim High grad Chad Wagner, was led by Kat McMahan’s 57 that placed her third.

Looking ahead

Sequim is back on the fairways and greens April 8 when the Wolves’s boys host Bremerton while the girls are at Olympic. Sequim’s boys are at Olympic on April 9, and the Sequim girls host Bremerton on April 10.

Both Sequim teams host a four-school league match in April 15, with Chimacum, Port Townsend and North Mason coming to The Cedars at Dungeness golf course.
