Issaquah Eagles’ golfers top Skyline Spartans
October 18, 2011
The top five Issaquah High School players, led by Weston Mui, shot in the 30s Oct. 3 as the Eagles defeated rival Skyline, 186-189, in a KingCo Conference 4A golf match at the Snoqualmie Falls Golf Course.
Mui shot a par 36 on Issaquah’s home course to share medalist honors with Skyline’s Brian Mogg and Kelly Sullivan.
Sid Raman, Bryan Jung and Brian Batt all shot 37s, and Fletcher Martin had a 39 to round out Issaquah’s top five scores. However, Taylor Swingle and Evan Ko also shot 39s. Danny Baumer just missed the group with a 40.
“It’s been that way all season. All the guys have been so close. I have to pick six players for district and it will be really tough to pick our top players,” Issaquah coach Tom Bakamus said.
Austin Nutt, Geoffry Grembowski and Kyle Vann had 39s for Skyline.
“I knew the match was going to be close. I think it just came down to our familiarity with the course, and the depth of our team,” Bakamus said.
