Kris Lether of Sequim sank his fifth lifetime hole-in-one, acing the 115-yard hole No. 9 at Dungeness Meadows using a pitching wedge.

PC esports teams get wins

The Pirate Esports team picked up more wins last week, led by Sequim’s Kaulin King and Stormy Custer.

King won his first Super Smash Brothers match of the season, defeating his opponent from Cal Albert State College 4-1. Custer also got her first win, defeating her Smash opponent from Iowa Central 4-2. Teammate Brandon Johanes nearly made it a Pirate sweep, going into game seven against a player from Jackson College before falling.

The Rainbow Six team won by forfeit on Oct. 19, moving up to fifth place in the National Junior College Athletic Associate Esports league.

The PC Fortnite players didn’t fare well last week, though Jarvis Rome and Jake Coulson have qualified for the NJCAAE final invitational tournament for Fortnite by placing in the top five in previous tournaments.
