Mercer Island girls golf earn 50th win in Spokane

The Mercer Island High School girls golf program earned their 50th straight win on Friday, April 20 during a trip to Spokane to play Lewis & Clark High School.

Lewis & Clark, finished second in state last spring, but won the state title the two years prior. The team is consistently ranked as one of the best programs in the state.

The Islanders traveled to play the Tigers at Esmerelda Golf Course in Spokane, and despite a very wet day, the teams took the to course. Ten players from each team played, and for a while the Islanders were 21 strokes behind Lewis & Clark, but as the Islanders finished and the results came in all 10 players shot lower than their average to earn the win.

The Islanders will return to league play this week with a KingCo match against Bellevue on Tuesday at Jefferson Park Golf Club starting at 4 p.m., and will travel to Tam O'Shanter Golf Course on Thursday to play Interlake.
