Some of the Wolves’ best rounds helped their teams remain 7-0 last week including a shootout on 18 holes in Sequim.

Both the boys and girls knocked off North Kitsap on April 19 at Whitehorse Golf Course and Olympic on April 21 at The Cedars at Dungeness.

Sequim’s No. 1 Jack Shea shot a season best 4-under-par with a 32 to lead the boys in a 153-193 victory.

The Wolves’ No. 2 Blake Wiker shot 2-over-par (38) followed by Jade Carter 41, shooting a season best, and Josiah Carter, 43. The Vikings’ Justus Jagodskake and Cole Rabedeax shot 47s followed by Kellen Fitz, 48, and Cooper Lindsey, 51.

For the girls, Alex McMenamin led all golfers with a 42 on the front nine holes and to a 206-232 win. The Vikings’ Abbey Holmberg followed McMenamin with a 48 for the No. 2 spot on the day but Sequim’s top shooters took the next three spots with Sarah Shea going for 50, Megan O’Mera a 56 and Sydney Balkan a 58.

Two days later, boys’ head coach Bill Shea said predictions came true that the showdown between previously undefeated Olympic Trojans and Sequim was going to be the “match of the season and “extremely close.”

On 18 holes, Jack Shea took the No. 1 overall spot again to lead the Wolves in the narrow 318-323 win.

He shot a 70 (35, 35) at The Cedars at Dungeness with the Trojans’ C.J. Lagat keeping pace at 72 (36, 36).

Sequim’s Arnold bested his previous personal record going for 80 (39, 41) for No. 4 overall followed by Wiker with an 82 (42, 40) for No. 5. Carter took Sequim’s fourth varsity spot again with an 86 (45, 41). For the Trojans, Conner Geyer went 79 (42, 37), Tanner Triggs 85 (42,43) and Roger O’Hara an 87 (42, 45).

Sequim’s girls won by 25 strokes (174-195), again led by McMenamin with a 33. Sarah Shea tied Olympic’s Ellie Wolf with 44, Balkan tied with Olympic’s Zoie Matheny with 48, and Samantha Smith tied with Olympic’s Abby Magee with 49. The Trojans’ Brilee Triggs shot a 54 for their fourth varsity spot.

Besting Bremerton

Sequim’s boys stayed perfect with a win at Bremerton on April 25, topping the Knights 330-391 while the girls topped Bremerton 187-211 in April 26.
