BELLINGHAM Whatcom County is known statewide for its abundance of beautiful, and challenging, golf courses. A number of area high school golfers got a taste of what it offers this week, for better or worse.
The Klahowya Eagles sent three golfers to the 2A WIAA State Golf Tournament, Tuesday and Wednesday at the Bellingham Golf & Country Club, the most of any Central Kitsap-area school. But none made it past the first day, a result of a tough course and tough competition.
For the boys, seniors Tim Cathcart and Kyle Spoon both advanced to the 80-golfer field, but Cathcarts 99 and Spoons 90 put the pair well off the 82-stroke cut. Spoons score was good for a 69th-place tie while Catchart came in 80th.
He wasnt alone however, as lone Eagle female golfer Trisha Rarey shot a 135 to finish 80th. The girls cut was 97. The top 40 golfers from both sides moved on.
In 3A competition, Olympic Trojan Ruthie Parsons shot a 112 to finish 75th. The cut for 3A girls also was 97 at Sudden Valley Golf Club, also in Bellingham.
