Look out, Washington 1A girls golf teams. South Whidbey is on top of its game.

The Falcons won the Cascade Conference championship match Monday, then claimed the 1A District 1 tournament Thursday. Both matches were contests between Cascade Conference rivals South Whidbey and King’s, and South Whidbey bested its private school foe each time. In the district championship, South Whidbey won with 464 strokes to the 496 of King’s.

Falcon senior Jenna Kaik was the co-medalist as the top golfer with 82 strokes through 18 holes at North Bellingham Golf and Country Club.

All six varsity golfers for South Whidbey — Kaik, Grace Stringer, Chelsea Schultz, Rosie Portillo and Hannah Cotton — advance to the 1A tri-district round at Gold Mountain Golf Club in Bremerton on Tuesday, May 14.

Abbi Rautenberg of Meridian High School was the co-champion and also shot 82 strokes through one round.
