The White River High golf team has trounced its opposition during the early portion of the season, with both the Hornet boys and girls winning handily on the way to 5-0 starts.

White River girls

The Hornet girls played twice last week, charging to an 80-19 victory over Foster High on Sept. 27, just a day after a whopping 72-7 defeat of Foss. The team was on the road for both victories, playing the Meadow Park course Sept. 26 and at Foster Golf Links the next day.

Sofia Lavinder continues to shine as White River’s top performer. She carded a 45 against Foss to share medalist honors with teammate Megan Cash, then put up a 43 against Foster, the best in the field.

Coach Anna Rose has a fairly young squad made up of five juniors – Cash, Taylee Goethals, Taylor Spooner and the Lavinder sisters, Sofia and Georgia – plus freshman Emma McGregor.

During the win over Foster, Georgia Lavinder and McGregor posted rounds of 45; Cash turned in a 47, Goethals finished at 50 and Spooner at 53.

Against Foss, Georgia Lavinder shot a 48, Goethals came in at 51, McGregor was at 53 and Spooner with a 54.

The team was in action yesterday (Tuesday), taking on the Fife Trojans at the Northshore Golf Course in Tacoma. Thursday, the team hosts second-place Franklin Pierce in a key South Puget Sound League 2A showdown at Enumclaw Golf Course.

White River boys

The White River boys scores have been a bit closer than the girls’, but the outcome has been the same – undefeated through five league matches.

Last week’s action included a 37-11 whipping of the Foss Falcons on Sept. 26, followed a day later by a 52-35 defeat of the Foster Bulldogs.

Cooper Franklin is leading the Hornet charge. The junior was medalist during both of last week’s matches, shooting a 41 at Meadow Park Golf Course then coming back the next day with a 36 at Foster Golf Links.

Other Hornets figuring in the scoring against Foster were Brock Keller 42; Beau Coogan and Joe Flanigan, both 43; Justin Smith 49; and Drew Thompson 51. Against Foss High, Flanigan carded a 43; Thompson and Keller, both 47; Smith 52; and Coogan 57.

This week’s action for the White River boys begins today, Wednesday, with a home match against Fife.
