Compared to years past, it wasn’t exactly a banner season for the Mercer Island boys golf team. The Islanders finished with a 2-4 league record this season, but have a lot of reasons to be optimistic.
“The team was young and they learned a lot, and I feel like we taught them a lot,” said head coach Tyson Peters.
While the Islanders finished fifth out of seven teams in KingCo, several began the postseason run with the KingCo tournament, which started Tuesday, after Reporter deadline. The district competition is next week, the last for the boys’ fall season. The season picks back up in the spring for the state competition.
“I’m hoping at least a couple guys will get to move on into the postseason,” said Peters. “We’d like to continue the streak.”
The Islanders have the longest streak of having at least one player make the state competition.
“It was a little rocky, but we’re optimistic about where we’re headed and feel it was a success in that regard,” said Peters.
The KingCo tournament is being held Tuesday, Oct. 11, at Willows Run Golf Course. Updates on results will be listed once available.
Qualifiers will move onto the district tournament Oct. 17 at Willows Run Golf Course in Redmond.
