The Sequim boys are the defending Olympic League champions and fire most players from that team. Wolves didn’t get a chance to go to the state last year, but finished second in the state in 2019, the last year the tournament was held.
A member of that mighty 2019 team, Ben Sweet, led all golfers with a best score of 39, Wolves’ top 3 handily dominated Bainbridge. Dominic Riccobene shot 44 and Pryce Glasser fired a 47. Cole Smithson didn’t have his best day, but he managed a 56 for Wolves’ fourth tally.
“The conditions on the island were magnificent. Mostly clear skies and sunshine for the first hour, then darkness started to creep in. Lars Wiker and Zackary Thompson had to play the last hole in near darkness, but they still got through,” O’Mera said.
“I’m really proud of all the guys. They had fantastic attitudes for the most part and they had fun all day. Special thanks to Lars and Zack for playing their first college golf games.
