Record round for EHS golf crew

Enumclaw sports news

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.
