The SPSL 3A boy’s golf championship match between Enumclaw and Auburn Mountainview came down to the last group, last hole, last putt.

“They made, we missed,” EHS coach Bob Kilmer said. “Exciting for the fans, Mountainview kids and staff, not much fun for the home team. We don’t lose too many at home.”

The Lions captured the title with an 88-87 win over the Hornets. Colton McCluskey paced EHS with a 2-under par 33.

After handing Decatur a loss Oct. 3, the Hornets, behind the record-setting performance of senior Tyler Salsbury, topped Lakes 99-46.

Salsbury shot a 5-under par 30 on the front nine at the Enumclaw Golf Course Oct. 4 to tie the Hornets’ course record. Salsbury shares the record with Andy Ainsworth from the 1999-2000 season. Salsbury was also the day’s medalist. McCluskey and Beau Brock were right behind at 36.

Against the Gators, Salsbury tied the EHS individual course record for Twin Lakes Country Club with a 1-under par 35 in EHS’s 89-74 win. The record he tied was his own. Fellow Hornet Chase Dolliver finished three strokes behind at 38 with McCluskey right behind at 39.

The Lady Hornets were on the winning side, 121-120, against Auburn Mountainview Thursday.

Tiffany Wilkening finished at 46 at Auburn Municipal Golf Course to lead EHS. Teammate Madeline Petellin followed one stroke behind with Tammy Wilkening one stroke behind her at 48.

The Wilkening sisters shared medalist honors for the Lady Hornets in EHS’s 124-63 win over Lakes at Oakbrook Country Club Oct. 4.

Tiffany, a junior, and Tammy, a freshman, finished the par-36 course with matching 45s.
