Federal Way girls golf battles Thomas Jefferson, Auburn Mountainview

Federal Way earns season high of 36 points at Sept. 12 match.

The Federal Way Girls Golf Team was edged by Auburn Mountainview 24-37 on a rainy afternoon at North Shore Golf Course on Tuesday, Sept. 17.

Sophomore Alyssa Iverson led the Lady Eagles with 12 points followed by seven points from freshman McKenna Hulse.

Grace Ellis (three points) and Katie Astruon (two points) rounded out the scoring.

Freshman Alexa Mejia, in her first varsity outing, and Debbie Kong braved the elements, but were unable to get a point in the inclement weather.

Brigitte Fenton from Auburn Mountainview was the medalist with a round of 43.

Last week, the Federal Way’s girls golf team scored a season high 36 points, but came up short against TJHS 36-71 on Sept. 12.

Federal Way sophomore Alyssa Iverson was the medalist for the match with a round of 45.

Captain Grace Ellis scored nine points while freshman Mckenna Hulse (five points), senior Katie Astruon (three points) and sophomore Hosanna Ellis (one point) contributed to the scoring.

Freshman Kira Nutter had a putt lip out on the seventh hole in her first varsity match.

“Alyssa Iverson rose to the challenge and finished with two pars on the final three holes to hold off the two TJ golfers for the Medalist title,” said FWHS head coach Emily Victor. “This experience will help her as she works to qualify to the state tournament this spring.”
