The Enumclaw High boys golf team set the home course on fire Thursday, shattering both team and individual school records on the par-35 front nine.
The record-setting performances came as part of the Hornets’ 113-67 victory over visiting Auburn Mountainview.
How good was the team’s performance the afternoon of Sept. 24? Carson Erwin fired a 4-under-par 31 to tie the school record – and had the team’s third-best round on the day. Jared Beals carded a 5-under-par 30 to establish a school record, but stayed atop the school’s all-time list for just a brief moment. Fifteen minutes later, Josh Erickson finished his round with a stellar 6-under-par 29.
Erickson’s EHS record round began with a birdie on the par-4 first hole. After making par on the second hole, he rattled off four consecutive birdies, then took a par-3 on the eighth. Needing a birdie to set the team record, he did just that, putting for three on the par-4 ninth hole.
As a team, the Hornets’ point total bested the previous mark of 111.
Also contributing to the second-setting round were Matt Hodgman, who shot 37; Bill Miller 38; and Andrew Littman 41.
Halfway through the South Puget Sound League 3A season, the Enumclaw High boys team had compiled a perfect 7-0 record. The Hornets squared off Tuesday against their top challenger, Bonney Lake, at the High Cedars course in Orting.
