Lynden's Ming dominates again, Sehome wins for first time this season


Lynden's Emily Ming blew out a four-team field by shooting a 77 on Monday, May 12, at Grandview Golf Course. But it was Sehome's girls' golf team that stood at the top of the team scores for the first time this season.

The Mariners had several golfers shoot new lows, including Hannah Peterson's 110.

"We were pretty excited," Sehome coach Don Helling said in a phone interview. "Hannah had a great match, but the one that dropped the most was Natalie Ramos."

Ming's performance topped all other golfers by almost 30 strokes. The next closest golfer was Meridian's Anna Ratzlaff with a 104.

"That was outstanding," Helling said of Ming's performance. "The was the best round I've seen her play. It was a pleasure to watch. She lit up the course."

Burlington-Edison finished second in team scores with a 658 followed by Lynden at 675 and Meridian at 742.
