Issaquah freshman golfer Zack Overstreet nets silver medal

October 23, 2012

A handful of local golfers from Skyline and Issaquah high schools played a lot of golf in a relatively short span last week, but were rewarded for their endeavors when they showed up among the top 10 finishers of the Sea-King 4A District golf championships Oct. 16 and 17 at Willows Run Golf Course in Redmond.

The most consistent local to burn up the links was Issaquah freshman Zack Overstreet, who in the qualifying rounds Oct. 16 carded 36s on the front and back nine (72), which is par for 18 holes at Willows.

The next day, which proved a bit more playable weather-wise, the exceptional frosh newcomer to the tournament again played well for the Eagles. He outdid his earlier par score, by managing four birdies to fire a 68 and finished districts two strokes off the frontrunner, Eastlake’s Li Wang’s 138, with a two-day bottom line of 140 for 72 holes, winding up as the tourney’s silver medalist.

Eastlake golfers defeat Skyline, remain unbeaten

October 4, 2011

Brian Mogg, Skyline High School sophomore golfer, deals with a tough approach shot from the rough on the fifth hole of The Plateau Club’s back nine Sept. 27. He was the match medalist with an even-par 36. By Christopher Huber

Brian Mogg always finds a way to get even. On the golf course, that is.

At the Sept. 27 cross-town match against the undefeated Eastlake Wolves, Skyline’s No. 1 golfer birdied the ninth hole for the third straight time to bring his score to 36.

“I really wanted to get even,” said Mogg, a standout sophomore who has won and placed in the top 10 in numerous regional youth tournaments. “I just try so much harder.”

While Mogg was the medalist at The Plateau Club after shooting an even 36 on the back nine, Eastlake pulled off another win to go 8-0 on the season. Despite No. 1 Li Wang tallying a 45, the Wolves managed to out-stroke Skyline 200-212.

Eastlake relied on low scores from sophomore Spencer Weiss and No. 10 golfer, freshman Colby Stirrat, both of whom scored a 3-over 39. They were the only other two to finish under 40.

Skyline was unable to place anyone else in the top five, as Eastlake’s Will Sharp compiled a 40-stroke performance and RP McCoy, Jack Fisher and Paul Russo all put up a 5-over 41.
