Boys and girls golf

The Bainbridge boys and girls golf team are turning in fine performances on the course.

The boys defeated O’Dea 141-137 Wednesday at Wing Point, while the girls beat Holy Names 114-86.

For the boys, O’Dea’s David Fonua was the medalist as he shot a two-under 33. Carl Jonson was the top scorer for Bainbridge with a two-over 37. Will Whealdon shot a three-over 38, while five others shot a 39.

For the girls, they stayed undefeated as Jasmine Shattuck and Julia Gross scored 34 and 31 Stableford points, respectively. Annika Van Houte had 30 points while Miranda Smith added 19.

Head coach Ian Havill said he was impressed with the team’s performance in spite of missing top scorer Maddy Devlin, who was out with an illness.

“It’s our best score of the season,” he said. “We’ve gotten better each time, so that gives them a lot of confidence that even though our best player isn’t here, they can still step up and play some of their best golf.”

Against West Seattle, the girls won 101-15. Gross scored 32 Stableford points, while Shattuck and Van Houte had 25 points each.

The boys defeated West Seattle 163-42. Jonson was the medalist with a four-under 33 while Whealdon shot a two-under 35. Bobby Griffin, Kris Thompson and Adam Pool all shot a one-over 38.
