There’s a lot to be said about home-field advantage.
And King’s used it to its benefit as the Lady Knights defeated South Whidbey girls golf, 179-163, Wednesday at Jackson Park Golf Course in Shoreline.
The loss cost South Whidbey the Cascade Conference regular season title. South Whidbey defeated King’s six days earlier on the Falcons’ home course at Useless Bay Golf and Country Club. But combined with a loss to Archbishop Murphy, the third-place team, South Whidbey finished in second place in the league standings.
King’s and South Whidbey figure to meet again at the Cascade Conference Championship at Snohomish Public Golf Course at the all-day tournament starting at 8 a.m. Monday, May 6. From there, the squads will face off again at the 1A District 1 tournament at the North Bellingham Golf Course on Thursday, May 9.
Last year, South Whidbey was represented at the 2A state tournament by Jenna Kaik, now a senior. If she qualifies, it will be her third time at a state golf tournament.
