St. Onge places 10th at state golf tourney


Wahkiakum Mule golfer Tyler St. Onge tied for 10th in the Class 1/2B tournament last week at Hangman Valley Golf Course in Spokane.

St. Onge shot 80 on May 22 to make the cut for the second day, when he shot 82 to finish with a total of 162.

Three other Mule golfers competed but didn't make the cut for the second day. Bryce Good hit 97, Logan LaBerge 99, and Zach Johnston 123.

Ilwaco's Blake Kukula shot 70 and 73 for a total of 143 to win the championship. Kukula had won the tournament in 2017.

Coach Nick Vavoudis commented:

"The Mules golf team went to state hoping to acquire some hardware and obviously are disappointed they didn’t accomplish that goal. Given the circumstances of the accident and not having their full varsity squad available, winning the league championship and district trophy was a significant accomplishment.

"Sending four golfers to state while no other school in the SW district sent more than one showed that the Mules have a balanced squad. Sending one player from each class, freshman Logan LaBerge, sophomore Tyler St. Onge, junior Zach Johnston and senior Bryce Good along with accident injured list players freshman Kaden Andersen and Elijah Doiron means we have great prospects for the next couple of seasons.

"Tyler St. Onge had a great performance at district (second) and state (tied for 10th). I expect to see even better performances from Tyler in the next couple of years. You might beat Tyler on the course but you’ll never outwork him. This is one of the reasons he is the captain, he leads by example.

"After getting so close to state hardware and medals the whole team has a taste for success. I’m sure we’ll see them at the course more this summer. They all feel like the accident took a little something from them and they aim to get it back."
