Freshman Ashley Clark finished off the fall season in strong fashion with a 79 leading Bellevue’s women’s golf team to a runner-up finish at the Olympic College Invitational on Friday October 23 at Gold Mountain. The tourney, held in tough cold, rainy, and windy conditions was also played on the challenging Olympic Course at Gold Mountain, which has hosted many prestigious national events due to its difficulty and beauty. Bellevue finished 8 strokes behind champion Skagit Valley.
Clark finished tied for second overall in the individual portion and was followed by Tori Berger who finished fifth with an 82. Clark, a freshman from Camas HS who took a gap year in 2019-20, fired a 1-under on the back nine and was propelled by an eagle 2 on the par 4 10th hole. She jarred her approach shot from a hundred yards out which led to a red hot back nine round. Hunter Humbert rounded out Bellevue’s scoring with an 85.
Bellevue closed out an impressive fall season finishing first along with two runner-up finishes in their three tourneys with a relatively new squad fielded by first-year Coach Mark Yoshino. The Bulldogs will continue to work individually as they look forward to a challenging spring season.
