SPORTS: Sequim High School senior Zbaraschuk zips through golf links

SEQUIM — Sequim High School senior Zoei Zbaraschuk remains scorching hot in girls golf.

Zbaraschuk scored even-par 35 on the back-nine at Cedars at Dungeness Golf Course to spark the Wolves to a 91-74 Olympic League win over Kingston on Thursday.

The senior recorded her best career prep score for medalist honors.

“Zoei is unbelievable,” Sequim coach Garrett Smithson said. “I have never had someone score even-par since I have been coach here.”

Smithson is in his third year as the head girls golf coach.

Zbaraschuk is now 3-for-3 for medalist honors in Sequim’s 2009 matches.

The Wolves improve to 2-0 in league and 3-0 overall.

Zbaraschuk’s gross score converted into a Stableford score of 36 points.

Sequim’s Kim Duce tied for second place with a gross of 49 for 22 Stableford points. That was the second-best round of the year for Duce.

Lisa Doan had a 55 gross for 16 points for the Wolves as she was followed by teammates Hayley Estes with 10 points and Ashley Morton with seven.

Hayley Welch led the Buccaneers with a gross of 49 to tie Duce for second while Kingston’s Elle Sander had a score of 50.

The Wolves next play April 23 against Port Townsend at Port Townsend Golf Club.

The Roughriders (4-0, 4-1) were led by match medalist Tracie DuPuis’ 49, good for 24 Stableford points.

Emily Cook shot a 50 and freshman D’Arcy Depew shot her best-ever competitive round of 54.
