Wahkiakum Mule Golf


The Mules had their best four man performance of the year but lost a heart breaker to North Beach on the front nine of Three Rivers Golf Course on Tuesday.

All six Mules in the rotation shot in the 40's for the first time ever with this group on the course scheduled to host the district championships and state qualifier.

Tyler St. Onge, freshman, and Bryce Good, junior, tied with 43; Elijah Doiron, freshman, shot 46, and the rest of the squad, Issac Moon, a freshman, Zach Johnston, a sophomore, and eighth grader Logan LaBerge carded 48's. Losing 176-180, the Mules record dropped to 14-6-2.

The back nine and second nine hole match of the day was a complete reversal of fortunes at Three Rivers. St Onge was medalist by three strokes with a 38, finalizing the Mules' season match record at 15-6-2. Also contributing were Moon, 43, Johnston, 44, Good, 48, LaBerge 49, and Doiron, 50.

After setting the year's best mark earlier in the day with a 180, the young Mules shot an impressive 173. What a great way to end the dual match season with the best performance of the year. St. Onge broke 40 earlier in the week with a 37 and now he did it for the first time in his career in league competition. I couldn't have asked for a better season closing story.

Next match is the district championships May 17 and 18 at Three Rivers.
