will qualify for the National USTAF Cross Country Championships in

South Carolina on Dec. 4.

Ed Dietz gets hole-in-one

While the good weather may be heading south for the winter,

that hasn't prevented golfers from taking to the links at Mount Si Golf

Course. Last week, another one scored his first-ever hole-in-one.

The honoree was Bellevue's Ed Dietz, who put it in the cup on the

first shot at the 184-yard par-three eleventh hole. Dietz used a driver to record

the shot on Wednesday, Nov. 3.
