Fox leads Riders
to home win
PORT ANGELES — Port Angeles senior fired a 41 on the recently aerated greens at Peninsula Golf Club in the Roughriders’ win over shorthanded North Mason.
Fox’s round included a birdie on the par-4 16th hole.
“Dana has been the match medalist in all six of her league matches this year and continues to be consistent and focused despite tough weather and course conditions,” Port Angeles coach Jacob Lippold said after Tuesday’s match.
Fox’s nine-hole average of 41.5 is tops in the Olympic League, just ahead of Sequim freshman Alex McMenamin’s 41.7 average.
The Riders shot 269 as a team, which bettered their only previous home-match score by 31 shots.
Kate Haworth and Maddie Boe continue to show improvement after starting the season nursing soccer injuries with scores shot 51 and 58, respectively.
Senior Chloe Brown posted a 56, Kylee Jeffers returned to match action and shot a 63 and Monica Gasper recorded a 67 for Port Angeles.
North Mason played with only two golfers. Brooke Mills finished with a 51 and Megan Jackson shot a 66.
The Roughriders hosts several teams from the Olympic League and the surrounding area Friday for the annual Duke Streeter Invitational at Peninsula Golf Club.
“I remember the Duke as being the tournament I looked forward to most in high school golf,” Lippold, who prepped at Sequim, said.
Participating in the Duke Streeter Invite are Sequim, Olympic and Shelton.

Micah Needham also shot his lowest round of the year, an 80 that featured three birdies and six pars.
Alex Brown beat his previous best by five strokes, shooting an 83 with seven pars and a birdie.
Austin Peterson shot an 87, also his personal best, with seven pars.
“It was a great win for us and the team finally put it together,” Mitrovich said, “and it was nice to see such positive results.”
The top four Port Angeles players will play in the Tim Higgins Memorial Tournament at Kitsap Golf and Country Club.
BREMERTON — The Wolves reached the 10-win mark with a dominating victory over the Knights.
Cameron Chase and Thomas Winfield each scored two goals for Sequim, and the defense of Lijah Sanford, Hector Baylon, Bailey Collins and Will Bitner combined to shut down Bremerton’s Michael Brown, one of the top scorers in the Olympic League.
Chase put the Wolves on the scoreboard first off an assist by Ron Welches in the 21st minute.
The Knights tied the scored in the 30th minute with a breakaway goal, but right before halftime Chase scored again to make it 2-1 at halftime.
Eli Berg assisted on that goal as well as Sequim’s next score when he set up Winfield in the 70th minute.
The same combination hooked up one minute later to put the game away when Berg’s shot was deflected by the goalkeeper and then punched in by Winfield.
The win keeps Sequim (10-2, 30 points) at the top of the league standings with North Kitsap and Kingston.
The Wolves host Port Townsend (3-8, nine points) on Friday night.
