Falcons overcome youth, win conference title / Girls golf

New faces, no problem.

After losing three players who qualified for the state tournament last year to graduation, the new-look South Whidbey High School girls golf team overcame its inexperience to win the Cascade Conference title in 2018.

The Falcons defeated Archbishop Murphy 89-57 Tuesday, May 1, to go 5-0 in conference play and wrap up the league championship.

“I am really proud of this group and how far they have come,” coach Garth Heggenes said.

South Whidbey will compete in the Cascade Conference Medalist Tournament at 8 a.m. Monday, May 7, at the Snohomish Golf Course, and then begin defense of its 2017 state championship at the district meet at 1:30 p.m. May 10 at the North Bellingham Golf Course.

In Tuesday’s win over Archbishop Murphy, Kolby Heggenes earned 27 Stableford points, Emma Leggett 22, Alyssa Ludtke 15, Tori Schuller 15 and Olivia Varga 10.
