South Whidbey girls golf narrowly missed out on a team title at the state 1A tournament Thursday and finished in second place.
The Falcons were paced by junior Tarra Moore’s 168 strokes, including a team-best 81 strokes on the second day. Rosie Portillo, a three-time state tournament golfer, shot an 84 on the first day and followed with 86 on day two.
Falcon freshman Kolby Heggenes was the model of consistency with an 88 each day. Grace Stringer, a senior, shot a 91 and a 95.
South Whidbey was edged out of first place by Cascade Conference rival King’s.
South Whidbey’s four golfers in the state tournament at Sun Willows Golf Course in Pasco scored 39 points.
King’s won the team title for the second year in a row with Charis Tsai and Hannah Roh taking second and third, respectively, in the individual competition. Elma’s Lauryn Keating won with a combined two-day score of 149, including a low of 73 during the second round.
