Falcon golfers win home finale

South Whidbey’s boys golf team won its last home match of the season Monday.

The Falcons hosted a non-league match against the Marsyville-Pilchuck Tomahawks, a 4A school from the WesCo North conference, and the Cedarcrest Red Wolves, a 2A school in the Cascade Conference, of which South Whidbey is a member. South Whidbey won with a comfortable advantage at 439 total strokes against Cedarcrest’s 470 and Marysville-Pilchuck’s 505 at Useless Bay Golf & Country Club.

“I’m very happy with the boys. The boys played pretty darn well,” said Falcon head coach Steve Jones.

Harrison Price, South Whidbey’s top golfer, was the medalist with 73 strokes. He was one of four seniors who led the Falcons to their second consecutive team win. Jesse Portillo finished second for South Whidbey with 84, Quintin Viers was fourth with 94 and Jerimiah Robey scored a 96.

Underclassmen Derrick Riley shot a 92 as the third-best Falcon scorer.

“I just want to recognize the parents of my seniors for four year of their support of the program, all the extra help, the matches, the practices,” Jones said.
