Wildcats finish 6th at district / Girls golf

The Oak Harbor High School girls golf team placed sixth out of 14 schools in the 3A District 1 tournament Tuesday and Wednesday at Everett’s Walter Hall Golf Course.

The top four teams earned state berths.

The Wildcats finished the first day just seven strokes out of fourth, but despite shooting 10 strokes better in the second round, they lost ground.

“The girls played extremely well today,” coach Andy Wesley said after Wednesday’s action. “They went out and battled through the pressure and weather.”

The Oak Harbor players questioned some of their shots, Wesley said, but “at the end of the day, they tried their best and I’m extremely proud of them.”

“They have improved so much as a team this year, I’m looking forward to what next year will bring,” he added.

Sara Rhodes led Oak Harbor with a 199, shooting a 92 the second day, a 15-stroke improvement over the first round.

Natasha Decker (102-109) and Danalin Matro (106-105) each finished at 211.

Jessica Aguilar shot 215 (108-107), and Jenna Flores had a 230 (120-110).

Hannah Rogers carded a 125 the first day and did not advance to the second round.

Marysville-Pilchuck’s Natalia Zieroth was medalist with a 162.

Arlington captured the team title with a 760, followed by Meadowdale (768), Snohomish (790), Marysville-Pilchuck (802), Everett (824) and Oak Harbor (836).
