Junior Caitlin Maralack led the way, firing a medalist round 38, and every shot was important as the Wildcats held off the Wolves 218-221 at Mount Si Golf Course, lower score wins. Bianca Bakcman carded a season-best 40 to pace Mount Si, who also had a solid round of 42 from Kara Murray. Amanda Urbasich carded a 52 in her final home match as a Wildcat golfer; yesterday’s contest was the last home match of the season for Mount Si on Senior Day.

Eastlake was led by a 39 from Ashley Fitzgibbons, and Maddie Nelson carded a 41 to pace the Wolves.

Mount Si also traveled over Snoqualmie Pass earlier this week to compete in the Suncadia Invitational. Maralack fired a 78 to lead the Wildcats, who finished with a score of 353 in the 18-hole event back on Monday. Murray recorded an 87 and Kat Hodgson fired an 88 at the Suncadia Golf Club course, located just outside of Cle Elum, about an hour’s trip east of North Bend on I-90 over Snoqualmie Pass.

The Wildcats wrap the regular season up this afternoon with a match against Redmond at Bear Creek Country Club. First tee time should be around 3:45 p.m. or so.
