Golf: SHS boys, girls tally big links wins

Sequim’s golf squads continue to rack up wins on the links, getting top-flight finishes from a host of Wolves.

Sequim’s boys kicked off last week with a 43-shot win over Crosspoint on April 12, with four players shooting 42 or better,

Ben Sweet led the Wolves with a 40. Dominic Riccobene and Pryce Glasser each shot 41, and Garret Hoesel shot a 42. Joe Grasser carded a 46, while Truman Nestor shot a 48.

Crosspoint’s George Berens was the medalist with a 38.

Two days later, Sequim’s boys looked right at home at Port Ludlow Golf Club with a 174-216 win over host North Kitsap.

Sweet and Riccobene tied for match medalist honors for Sequim with rounds of 2-over-par 38, with Sweet sinking three birdies and Riccobene posting two.

“Ben Sweet had an amazing recovery shot from the bank of a pond on hole No. 6, having to remove his shoe and sock to hit it,” Sequim coach Sean O’Mera said. “Dominic Riccobene had an absolutely unreal up-and-down for birdie on hole No. 8, hitting a delicate chip shot perfectly down a slope to a tucked pin.”

Hoesel added a 45 and Glasser a 53 for the Wolves.

“I am proud of the guys,” O’Mera said. “We still have not had a match yet where we have fired on all cylinders, but it is coming soon.”

On April 15, Sequim hosted Bremerton and routed the Knights 151-222 on The Cedars at Dungeness’ front nine, improving their previous best team score of the season by 20 shots.

Sweet sank three birdies on his way to a 1-under-par 35 for medalist honors.

Riccobene and Glasser each shot 38.

Hoesel turned in his best round of the year, O’Mera said, shooting a 40 that included an 1-under-par through a three-hole stretch to start his match.

Not to be outdone, Sequim’s girls team racked up wins against Crosspoint, North Kitsap and Bremerton last week as well.

JoNell Hill paced Sequim with a 49 in the win over Crosspoint, a team with one golfer, on April 12. Jessica German added a 50, Delaney Nucci a 55 and Hannah Wagner carded a 57.

On April 14, Sequim edged North Kitsap’s Vikings 227-243 with German leading the Wolves with a round of 51, Wagner next with 54, Nucci a 58 and Isabella Williams in with a 64.

A day later on the Wolves’ home course, Wagner earned medalist honors with a round of 45 at Cedars at Dungeness, edging German by one stroke.

“The sunshine brought out our best team score of the season,” Sequim coach Tim Lusk said.

Nucci added a 50 and Emily Post totaled a 57.

The Wovles were slated to cap their abridged 2021 season on April 20 at home against Kingston — results were not available at press time.
