Falcon girls place third in Emerald Sound Conference

The competition, which took place on the Coyote Course, had a total of 18 holes and a par of 72.

The South Whidbey High School girls golf team finished in third place at the Emerald Sound Conference Championships at the Willows Run Golf Club Wednesday, May 12, in Redmond.

The competition, which took place on the Coyote Course, had a total of 18 holes and a par of 72.

The Falcons had a total score of 443. Overlake won the championship with a score of 369.

South Whidbey senior Tori Schuller placed sixth overall in the competition with a score of 98 and made first team all-conference — all on the day of her 18th birthday.

Paul Schuller is the girls team coach and her father.

“It was truly a pleasure to coach these girls and to be able to watch my daughter excel this past year,” Paul Schuller said. “They all improved immensely and are ready and willing to keep the fire burning.”

Juniors Caitlin Sullivan and Bella Pierce, with scores of 109 and 111, placed 11th and 13th. They made second team all-conference.

Schuller said sophomore Payton Courier and junior Trinity Krouse both had personal bests in the last league match and freshman Rachel Dougherty had a great tournament just one week after joining the team.

Tori Schuller is planning to play college golf at Linfield University this fall.

“Although it wasn’t an ideal senior season, I am glad we got to play with my friends,” she said.
