Boys golf preview
Issaquah High School boys golf coach Tom Bakamus knew his team would have to play its best match of the season to beat Eastlake Sept. 16 at the Sahalee Country Club.
The Eagles had a solid effort, but Eastlake proved too strong as the host Wolves captured the 4A KingCo Conference match.
Eastlake won with 193 strokes to Issaquah’s 211. Issaquah had a four-match KingCo win streak snapped in the process.
Spencer Weiss, of Eastlake, was the medalist with a 1-over-par 37. Alex Ciszewski topped the Eagles with a 40.

“We are inexperienced, but deep with the sophomore class,” Bakamus said. Read more
