A round of golf on this Tuesday with news from Mount Si’s boys team and from the colleges as well…..

Good Tuesday morning. We’ll try to get you some Mount Si High School volleyball information for you later on today, but in the meantime, we hit the links this morning and talk a little golf.

Valleyite Kat Hodgson had a nice round Sunday for the University of Victoria women’s golf squad, and her efforts helped the Vikings earn a berth to the Canadian college national championship tournament next year.

Hodgson, a sophomore from North Bend and 2017 MSHS’er, fired a solid round of 76 Sunday and finished in a tie for 10th at the inaugural Canada West Golf Championships in Kelowna, BC. She had a two-round total of 158, +14 over par on the par-72 Okanagan Golf Club layout in the interior British Columbia city.

UVictoria’s women took second as a team clinching that berth to the national tournament.


Maralack struggles in Yale tourney: Hodgson’s former Mount Si teammate, University of Hartford senior Caitlin Maralack, found the going a little challenging this past weekend as she struggled to a 72nd-place finish at the Yale Fall Intercollegiate women’s tournament in Connecticut.

Maralack, from Snoqualmie and a 2016 MSHS’er, fired rounds of 80, 76 and 85 over the three days of the event last Friday to Sunday to finish with a 28-over par 241 on the par-71 Yale University campus golf course in New Haven.

The Hawks finished 14th of 14 teams in the event with their top individual finisher finishing 42nd overall in the tournament, so it was a challenge not just for the Valleyite, but the rest of her team as well.

Hartford has one more fall tournament – the Sacred Heart Fall Classic October 20 and 21 in Milford, CT, then it’s time to put the clubs away until the spring portion of the season starts up in March of next year.

Kingco 4A high school boys’ title on line today
Local golf fans are going to want to head up to the Plateau Club golf course in Sammamish this afternoon as the Mount Si High School boys’ golf team takes on Skyline in a battle of the two remaining unbeaten teams in Kingco 4A, with the winner sealing up the league title and the top seed into the upcoming Kingco/SeaKing tournament two-fer.

Mount Si, as you know, is led by senior Drew Warford, who’s had several medalist rounds this season as he once again chases the 4A state high school boys’ golf title, which will be contested next spring. Warford is among the best youth golfers in the Northwest, so he will be ready to go. Brother Hogan Warford also will aim for a strong day today, and their teammates Cooper Neil, Robbie Nielsen and Nate Harris among others make this Wildcat team a very deep, potent group that will be ready for battle today.

Skyline’s also been balanced this season and among their top golfers this year have been senior Jordan Werner and juniors Jake Berg and Michael Guo, all of who have posted medalist rounds this season. Also keep an eye on senior Ethan Kinnan, and juniors Joey Seo and Justin Kim. In all, the best this league has to offer is on the course today, so high level play can be expected out there on the links this afternoon.

The match tees off at 3:10 p.m. and will only run for the first nine holes of the course. Admission is free and Plateau’s clubhouse and parking lot are located at 25625 E. Plateau Drive in Sammamish. To get there, here’s directions:

From I-90/Issaquah: Take Exits 17 or 18 and make your way north into Sammamish. Get yourself over to 228th Ave. SE and head north up 228th to the Skyline campus. Instead of turning into the school, follow down to the next light at SE 8th St. and turn right. Head east on SE 8th as the road curves north and turns into 244th Ave. SE. Follow north to the roundabout at E. Main Drive and veer right. Head east and the entrance will be on your right a bit up the road, you likely won’t miss it as it should be well marked.

From SR 202/Fall City-Redmond: Head west or east on SR 202 to 244th Ave. NE and turn left/right at the light going up the hill on 244th. At the roundabout for NE 8th, stay straight on 244th. Head south to the next roundabout at E. Main Drive and veer left. From there, follow the above directions to the course.
