Emily Lindus tees off the first hole at Useless Bay Golf Course on Monday afternoon.

The Falcon girls golf team has managed to survive the inclement weather this spring and is poised to have a great season — the girls are now 2-0.

“Everyone is working hard on the parts of their game that need work and all the girls are starting to become more confident in their swings, so we’re hoping for a good result on Thursday against ATM at Battlecreek Golf Course,” Falcon Coach Tom Donnelly said.

The weather was as good as it gets Monday afternoon as the girls welcomed Kings to Useless Bay Golf Club. Teams play using the Stableford scoring system, a stroke-play format in which the high total wins, not the low. That’s because in Stableford, the final score is not the stroke total, but rather the total points earned on each individual hole.

South Whidbey beat the Knights 78 to 40.

Falcons senior Courtney Dettrich medaled with 22 points, Whitney Wood was second with 20, Sarah Muncey-Gordon had 15, Sydney Miller had 11, Emily Lindus earned 10 and Olivia Hamilton had eight.

But teammate Whitney Wood cautioned that the girl’s success so far is tenuous at best.

“It’s too soon to tell how we’ll do over the long haul,” she noted after teeing off on the second hole.

After ATM, the girls welcome Cedarcrest at 3 p.m. Tuesday, April 3.
