Enumclaw Hornets golf preview

The Enumclaw High boys and girls golf teams are back on the greens looking for another successful season.

The Enumclaw High boys and girls golf teams are back on the greens looking for another successful season.

Last season the boys were 8-2, earning the South Puget Sound League 3A title and the girls were undefeated league champs at 10-0.

The girls finished the season third in state with a team score of 57.

Boys coach Bob Kilmer has been coaching gold for 19 years, and girls coach Steve Murphy has assisted for seven years. This is his first year as the head coach of the girls.

The success of the coaching staff is evident in the numbers. Since 2007 the boys and girls teams have won 10 state trophies.

The team captains for the boys team are seniors Kolton Tinney and Ian Runland.

Maddie Pillo and Kadyn Eldridge are the captains for the girls teams. Both are seniors.

Last year Pillo made the state tournament finishing 37th shooting 94 the first day and 103 the second. Eldridge also played at the state tournament scoring 99, just missing the cut for the second day.

Both should make the state greens again.

For the boys Josh Erickson played both days at state last year as a freshman scoring 81 on the first day and     84 the second. He finished 32nd.

As a sophomore Erickson should play even stronger this season along with Tinney and Runland
