Mount Baker’s Gemma Wilson picked the perfect time to not only have the best round of her year, but also have the best round of her career.
Wilson’s 91 was good enough for 11th place after day one of the Class 1A State Championships on Tuesday, May 24, at Liberty Lake Golf Course in Spokane.
“She was just hitting the ball really well and recovering,” coach Mike Lembo said.
Her teammate Clara Bergman (89) is tied for eighth place and nine strokes behind the leader, Hannah Roh of King’s.
