Heggenes 3rd, Falcons 4th at state tournament / Girls golf

Kolby Heggenes placed third and South Whidbey High School fourth at the 1B/2B/1A girls state golf tournament Tuesday and Wednesday, May 22 and 23, at the Hangman Valley Golf Course in Spokane.

After finishing second in the individual standings the past two years, Heggenes couldn’t wrangle the elusive title.

The top four finishers from day one remained the same after the second round.

Kaysa Panke of Davenport shot the best two rounds of the tournament, 69 Tuesday and 68 Wednesday, to take the title with a two-day total of 137.

Heggenes shot 74 and 76 for a 150, trailing second-place finisher Taylor Entenman of La Center, who carded a 148 (72, 76).

As a team, the Falcons took fourth after winning the crown last fall and finishing second the previous two years.

Montesano claimed the 2018 title with 73.5 points, followed by Annie Wright (71.5), Freeman (59.5) and South Whidbey (58).

Emma Leggett helped the Falcons finish in the top five by placing 23rd with a 186 (92, 94).

South Whidbey’s Alyssa Ludtke wsa 57th with a 108.

The tournament was trimmed to 40 players (score of 100 or better) for the second round.

“All the girls played well,” coach Garth Heggenes said. “I am really proud of how they all played.

“Kolby hit the ball extremely well but just could not get some putts to fall.

“Emma played two of the best rounds she has all season.

“Alyssa played good as well, and, except for a couple bad holes, she would have made the cut.

“In all, it was a great season with a great group of girls.”
