Sports briefs: Beuke gets All-American honr; Hanley sinks ace; ‘Bob Cup’ golf tourney seeking sponsors

Beuke gets All-American nod

The University Washington women’s rowing team’s postseason success continued last week as four Huskies earned Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association first-team All-American honors — including Sequim High grad Elise Beuke — and Yasmin Farooq was named Division I National Coach of the Year, the association announced.

Beuke joined Katy Gillingham, Brooke Pierson and Karle Pitt-singer — all underclassmen from Washington — in earning All-America status.

Beuke, a sophomore, rowed in the seven seat in the Huskies’ varsity eight. As a freshman in 2016, she earned a third-place finish at NCAAs as part of the UW’s second eight.

Beuke, Pierson and Pittsinger — as well as junior Jessica Thoennes — are competing at the U.S. National Team Under-23 Selection Camp this month.

The Bob Cup honors the memory of Robert “Bob” Raymond Duncan, a Sequim native and avid golfer who died unexpectedly in November 2015.

Sponsors wishing to be on the tournament poster need to register by Monday, June 12; however, sponsors will be accepted past that date. Past sponsors including Alaska Airlines, Koenig Subaru, Mark N. McHugh Real Estate, Sound Community Bank, Kirsch Electric, Hi-Way 101 Diner, Oak Table, Blake Tile and Stone, Berneking Concrete and Steve Gish, Attorney at Law.

Run at Valley of the Trolls

Registration is underway for the third annual Valley of the Trolls, an event featuring a half-marathon, 10-kilometer and 5k races, that will be held Saturday, Aug. 19.

The event is held at Troll Haven Bandy Farms, a troll-themed property at 950 Gardiner Beach Road, beginning at 8 a.m.

Friends of Jefferson County Parks and Recreation organize the event.

They are challenging the citizens of Port Angeles, Sequim, Port Townsend, Forks and Chimacum to compete. The town with the most runners will have a donation made to the town’s high school track and field program.

All finishers will get a T-shirt and medal.
