Local golfers lighting up the links

It has been a fabulous fall for the Plateau’s prep golfers.

Winning nearly every time they hit the links, the boys and girls teams from Enumclaw and White River have combined to post victories in 35 of their 40 matches.

The quartet of successful teams are led by coaches Bob Kilmer, Enumclaw boys; Phil Engebretsen, Enumclaw girls; Jer Argo, White River boys; and Todd Miller, White River girls.

With the regular season behind them, golfers at Enumclaw High can boast of league championships on both the boys and girls side of the ledger. While the EHS boys won eight of 10 matches, they were trumped by the Hornet girls, who went a perfect 10-0 in South Puget Sound League 3A play.

At Enumclaw High, this year’s success is far from a recent occurrence. The EHS girls have now won 10 league titles in the past 11 seasons and lay claim to 15 championships overall. For the EHS boys, this year’s crown is the 22nd in school history.

The future also looks rosy at EHS, as both the junior varsity teams – boys and girls – finished a perfect 10-0 on the season.

White River also is writing a success story.

Through matches of last week – and with two outings remaining in the regular season – the White River boys team is leading the SPSL 2A with a 9-1 mark and girls were sitting second at 8-2.
