Coach: Joel Wark
Last year: Finished 11th in the Northwest Conference standings. Finished eighth at the 3A Northwest District Tournament, but did not advance any golfers to state.
Players to watch: Matt Scott (sr.), Tanner Lester (jr.), Zach Shockley (sr.), Joel Quanz (so.), Daniel Erickson (so.)
Outlook: The Golden Eagles return five letter winners from last season, but that's not all they're excited about this year. "We've got a level of enthusiasm that I haven't seen in a while," Wark said in a phone interview. "These guys have played a lot of golf in the offseason. ... They're feeling good about their swings. Now all we need to do is start scoring as the season rolls on." Ferndale has set the goal of improving upon last season's finish, and Wark said Scott, Lester and Shockley all have a shot at getting through to state. "We just need to see a little more consistency," Wark said. "We're capable of scoring, we've just got to be able to do it day in and day out."
