High School Golf
The Wahkiakum Mule golf team opened the 2014 season with a best four of five man total 183 and wins over Willapa Valley, 200, North Beach, 251, and Raymond and South Bend who played Incomplete which means less than four players competed.
Seniors Austin Good, 40, and Zach Calvert, 43, are the highest District 4 qualifiers returning from the 2013 season, and they anchored the Mule win, finishing first and third in the 17 man field.
Junior Elliot Haney finished fourth, shooting a 47. New comers Bradey LaBerge, 53, and Tanner Bergseng, 73, both juniors, showed great potential in their first competition ever after playing only 10 days.
A win over Willapa Valley is a good start. They are a deep team with two players who qualified for state last spring and who gave the Mules their only match-loss blemish in 2013. It's going to be a toss up every time we play them, which starts today (Thursday) with the Mules' next match on a neutral course at Adna.
