High-school sports: WSHS golfers headed for district tournament

Thanks to Kristin Gibson for the photo and report:

Four members of the WSHS Varsity boys’ golf team qualified for the 3A Metro/King Co. District tournament after competing in the Metro League Golf Championship last week. Tony Flores, Bailey Fuentes, Alex Nguyen and Zach Gibson finished in the top 39 to earn a place to compete Tuesday at Riverbend Golf Complex in Kent. Zach Gibson medaled for the Wildcats with a 6th-place finish and a two-round total of 149.

Good luck to them next week! Sports reports are always welcome at editor@westseattleblog.com.

    Thanks for sharing this nice story. I played Varsity Golf from 7-12 grade many years ago:), with the decline in the sport of golf it is nice to see strong representation in the neighborhood. Way to go! Good luck at districts and please keep us updated on your progress!

    Well done gentlemen!

    Glad to see golf getting coverage! Sports like golf that do not lead to brain damage and death should get more attention.

      Brian – we would be thrilled to cover more sports but we are reliant on community help. We have been able to get out to some of the higher-profile sports because of when they’re scheduled as much as anything (Friday/Saturday nights, no community meetings to cover, or some afternoons, like baseball and soccer) but we remain very thinly staffed and so we are absolutely appreciative of getting reports like this one so we can publish them and share the news with the community. More welcome! editor@westseattleblog.com – TR
