From the Sideline

“Claire is arguably the best golfer in the league,” Decatur girls coach Steve Gorringe said. “In her first four matches of the season, she has shot a 38 for nine holes. This last Thursday, she led the Lady Gators in a victory over Federal Way by shooting a season-best 36 and earned her team 27 points. She has been a medalist in every match she has played and is well on her way to becoming the league medalist at districts in two weeks.”

The Athlete of the Week is sponsored by Eagle Tire, Federal Way Public Schools and Jimmy Mack’s Roadhouse.
