Despite all their talent, the team ended their season with a record of three wins and six losses. None of the young golfers expected their record to end up as low as it was.

“As a team we had a lot of potential,” senior Evan Ponto said. “We should have only lost two matches, but instead we won only three of the nine.”

In matches against Newport and Eastlake they lost only by two points, and against Mount Si by only one.

“We looked really strong coming into tryouts,” senior captain Johnny Marks said. “And then we just failed to perform.”

Marks attributed this to the boys “not taking the practices seriously enough,” including the additional practices that they put in on the weekends at the Inglewood Golf Club.

Despite how the boys felt their season went, they are not completely disappointed with the results.

“I think we have a very skilled set of guys and we should have done better, but I don’t know,” Marks said. “It was just really fun. It’s always fun.”

The district championship, which started Oct. 14, resulted in sophomore Mason Phalen tying for 12th place and junior Carter Tillotson achieving ninth. Tillotson will move on to represent Inglemoor at state in the spring with Phalen as an alternate.
