Spring was a season of success for Enumclaw High’s kevWilkening sisters.

Tiffany, a graduated earlier this week, and Tammy, who is finishing her sophomore year, racked up honor on two athletic fronts.

Tiffany, 18, was the top player on the Hornet golf team, earning first-team all-South Puget Sound League 3A honors and receiving the Scholar Athlete Award with an impressive grade-point average of 3.95.

She is just the second girl in Enumclaw High history to qualify for the state golf tournament four times. She made the most of her senior appearance, shooting a combined, two-day total of 165, grabbing seventh-place honors and leading her team to a third-place finish in the overall standings.

For her effort, she received all-state accolades.

Younger sister Tammy, 15, took a painful route to her spring success.

In April 2012, while playing golf, she suffered a concussion and traumatic brain injury when she was struck in the eye with an errant golf ball. A one-year recovery program kept her from contact sports.

She bounced back this year to join her sister on the all-SPSL golf team and also qualfied for the state tourney.

She found time on the course despite holding down the job as the starting centerfielder for the Enumclaw High fastpitch team. Cleared for action, she was a first-team, all-SPSL pick on the diamond as well, helping her team to the Class 3A state tournament.
