Mount Si High School’s top boys golfers narrowly missed a state appearance in district play last week.
Seniors Mitch Gardunia and Sean Ballsmith represented the Wildcats at SeaKing District golf championships, Monday, Oct. 17, at Willows Golf Course in Redmond.
Gardunia missed qualifying for state by a single stroke. Ballsmith was three strokes shy.
The two leaders went to districts after a strong run on the Mount Si team. Ballsmith was the finesse player, all about control on the course; Gardunia was the long hitter, strong at distance.
Scores were high and weather was brutal when the two played at the league championships, held Tuesday, Oct. 11, at Redmond’s Willows Run. Ballsmith and Gardunia got qualifying scores of 79 each.
