During a nine-hole version of the Battle of the Bridge, White River’s golfers topped their rivals from Enumclaw High.
The Friday afternoon showdown took place at the Enumclaw Golf Course, which is home turf for both Plateau programs.
Playing the front nine at EGC, the White River boys won a 71-69 squeaker. It was nearly as close on the girls’ side, where the Pierce County squad strolled away as 73-67 victors.
White River sophomore Zach Miller was the boys’ medalist, shooting a round of 33 and totaling 20 points toward his squad’s victory. Enumclaw senior Cameron Serba was just a step behind, carding a 34 and winding up with 19 points.
Among the girls, White River’s Brooke Gelinas took medalist honors with a round of 39. Posting the best round for the Enumclaw crew was Meredith Petellin who finished at 42.
Golfers from the neighboring schools had squared off two days earlier in a practice match and will see each other again during the league tournament at the end of the season.
