Golf: SHS boys defend Higgins Memorial title, Sequim girls improve to 8-1 with league win

Sequim’s boys and girls golf squads have plenty of momentum heading into the postseason.

Sequim’s boys captured their second league title in as many years with another undefeated season, capped by a 168-208 league win at North Mason’s Lakeland Village Golf Course on April 25.

Leading the way was Paul Jacobsen with a round of 40. Second went to fellow SHS freshman Andrew Vanderberg with a 42, and tied for third were Sequim’s Blake Wiker and Josiah Carter with identical 43s.

After securing their undefeated season, the Wolves went on to defend their Higgins Memorial Invitational in Port Orchard on April 27. Carter, Jacobsen, Vanderberg and Wiker combined to score 97 points in the Stableford format event.

All four players shot rounds in the low 80s to finish nine strokes ahead of the second-place team.

Sequim’s boys also competed at the Duke Streeter Invite on April 28 in Port Angeles, taking sixth in the eight-team tourney held at Peninsula Golf Club. Carter and Jarrett Allen were the top Wolves with a combined round of 72. Vanderberg and Issac Smith shot a 76.

Capital won the team title while Shelton’s Tim Nail and Jonah Perry claimed the two-person scramble format event, shooting a 7-under-par 65.

Girls improve to 8-1

Sequim’s girls came close to repeating their undefeated 2016 season, capping an 8-1 spring with a 179-244 victory on April 25 at North Mason.

Alex McMenamin shot a 2-under-par 34 to lead the Wolves. Sarah Shea added a 42, Samantha Smith shot 49, Angela Currilo a 54 and Maddie Uranga a 55.

Looking ahead

Sequim was slated to host the Olympic League Championship May 2 at The Cedars at Dungeness. Top golfers advance to the state 2A tournament while others can qualify for the West Central District tournament, set for May 16 at Gold Mountain Golf Club in Bremerton.

The state 2A tournaments are in Spokane, May 23-24.
