Coach: Don Helling
Last Year: Finished sixth in the Northwest Conference. Did not qualify any golfers for state.
Players to watch: Melanie Henley (sr.), Dani Johnson (so.)
Outlook: The Sehome team you've seen in March, which has consisted of only one or two golfers, certainly isn't the one you're likely to see in May. Henley and Johnson are the Mariners' captains, and they're about the only two certainties on the team, Helling said. Though the he has a number of golfers on the junior varsity squad, he said he's waiting to see which is ready to step up to the varsity level. "We've had two really big graduating groups in a row, so this is definitely a rebuilding year for us," Helling said. "We have a lot of players that are not starting varsity right off the bat. ... Hopefully by the end of the year, we'll have gained some confidence and seen who is ready to compete at that level and be stronger at the end of the year."
