“Our hard work this season is beginning to pay off,” said Lopez golf coach Richard Têtu. “A number of our players have made real breakthroughs in the past couple of matches.”
The Lopez Lobos traveled to LaConner on April 16 where Emily PostvanderBurg carded a personal best of 48 to be named the girls’ medalist. Randi Ritchie posted at 50 and Lisa Vaughn came in with a 55. “Lily Ewert and Tammora Nedorocik are improving fast, and they, and Helen O’Brien and Sydney Hoffman, will hopefully shoot qualifying scores for the District tournament in the next three matches.”
On the boys’ team, Colton Jardine shot a personal best of 48, Noah Dretske carded a 49 and Kevin Dengler shot a 53.
Thursday, April 17 the Lobos hosted Grace Academy at the Lopez Golf Course and both the girls’ and boys’ teams won theor matches by a sizeable margin.
