The Eastmont Girls Golf Team will be heading to state after literally having to survive a test at the District Tournament Wednesday.
The Eastmont Lady Cats golf team finished second at the District Championships yesterday at Black Rock Creek Golf Course. But because Davis’ Cassie Kim can’t play at State, that left the District Champion Pirates one golfer short of the minimum to play as a team, thus forfeiting its position to Eastmont.
Eastmont was led by Emilee Wentworth, who shot 82. Which was good enough for second place to medalist Cassie Kim of Davis.
Kim will be taking International Baccalaureate exams at the time the State Golf Tournament is going on, so she can’t play. As a result, Davis doesn’t have enough players to participate as a team in the State Tournament. So the one Big-9 seed to state, by default, goes to the second-place team, Eastmont.
The Wildcats finished at 422 to Davis’ 414, but because of the wrinkle due to Kim’s absence, Eastmont goes to state. Wenatchee finished fourth at 474.
