Golf: SHS girls knock off Roughriders

Sequim’s boys got their first win of the season and Sequim’s girls improved to 4-1 last week, as the Wolves looked to shake off the proverbial rust in their return from spring break.

Lars Wiker shot a 43 and Joey Kang a career-best 45 as SHS’s boys knocked off the visiting Kingston Buccaneers 179-184 on April 9. Cody Dumscomb added a pair of birdies for the Wolves, who snapped a four-match winless streak.

Sequim’s girls, who saw their match against Kingston canceled, improved to four wins in five matches against their cross-peninsula rivals on April 11, knocking off Port Angeles on the road 184-201.

Emily Post led the Wolves with a 42 for medalist honors a personal best. She was backed by 46s from Kendra Dodson and Taryn Johnson, 50 from Ava Johnson and 52 from Raimey Brewer. Malena Marquez shot a 49 to lead Port Angeles.

“Solid scoring by both teams,” Sequim coach Tim Lusk said.

Meanwhile, Sequim’s boys (1-5) shot a collective season best-tying 179, but thanks to strong rounds from Nate Anderson and Reid Schmitt the Roughriders topped SHS 157-179.

Adrian Aragon paced the Wolves with a round of 38, with two birdies. But Anderson earned medalist honors with a 35 and Schmitt shot a 39 for Port Angeles.

Looking ahead

Sequim’s golfers were slated to play a make-up date with Bremerton early this week. They host North Mason on April 18 and play at North Kitsap on April 26.

The Wolves take part in the North Kitsap Golf Invitational on May 2 and vie for state and district tourney berths at the Olympic League Championships on May 6 in Kingston.
