The Vashon High School golf team finished its last match at home against Charles Wright School on May 8.

The team played well against the Nisqually League’s first-place team but ended up losing by four strokes.

On May 10, the Nisqually League playoffs were held at the Olympic Golf Course at Gold Mountain in Bremerton. Only 15 players from the league qualify for districts, and the team made a good showing on the tough Olympic course with three players qualifying for District. Luke Larson earned a fifth-place ribbon with a 92. Amedeo Gallina, Italian exchange student, shot a 97. He made his lowest score ever and had never played golf until he came out for the team this year. Colin Shore was the 15th qualifier. He survived a four-person playoff for the final spot.

Other participants were Sam Knight, team captain; Michele (Mike) Piatti, an Italian exchange student; and sophomore Jake Harrah.

Graduating this year are Larson, Knight, Shore, Jahmiah Hoogen and Jackson Higuera. Returning to the team next year will be sophmores Harrah, Matthew Jones, Jack Zimmerman and freshman Koen Shaw.

The team wants to take this opportunity to thank the Vashon Golf & Swim Club for its support. The club provides funds every year from its annual Pro-Am Tournament and allows the team free use of the golf course during the three-month Nisqually League golf season.
