T-Birds set for championship
By Colin Phan - Staff Reporter
Highline's women's golf team finished last out of eight in a tournament hosted by South Western Oregon.
Highline finished with a total score of 565, 139 shots over par. The tournament ended with a tie for first place between Spokane and North Idaho.
Spokane and North Idaho both finished with scores of 478, 52 shots over par.
Jenna Muller led the way for Highline, finishing with a three-way tie for 34th place. Muller had a score of 185, shooting 43 shots above par. The Lady T-Birds also got a 39th place finish from Alyssa Metzger, who ended with 194, 52 shots above par.
"Alyssa Metzger's second round was one of her best performances of the year," said Head Coach Steve Turcotte.
This tournament marked the last regular season outing for the Lady T-Birds. Highline will head to the Apple Tree Golf Course in Yakima next weekend, May 20-21, to play in the NWAC Championship tournament.
"I was hoping that we would have lower scores by this point, but they are improving and I want them to continue to improve," said Turcotte.
The NWAC Championships will be a 36-hole stroke play, where the three lowest scores from each 18-hole round will determine each team's score.
"I would love for us to pick up where we left off in the second round of the [South West Oregon] tournament, and get in the top six," said Turcotte.
