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.
