Pitcher Peyton Benavides struck out 13 batters, had a hit in the five-inning game and Lucy Trump contributed with a hit.  The Wolfpack was aggressive running the bases and did not commit a fielding error.  

Anderson and Barron Play Last Round for DW

The golf team enjoyed a sunny day at Goldendale on Wednesday, May 4. The Wolfpack had a difficult time with the narrow fairways, rough greens and a lack of familiarity with the 18-hole, par 72 course. 

Though the team was not able to practice Monday and Tuesday before the meet due to the local golf course being closed, the team showed the class and sportsmanship that the coach has come to expect from them. 

Freshman Lucas VanHoose shot a personal best, 131, at Goldendale.  Senior Caleb Barron led the team with a score of 111. Jay Dimak shot a 129, Garret Palmer 132 and Theo Anderson 135.  Claudia Benavides scored a 139. DW competed against teams from Columbia Burbank, Goldendale, White Swan, Yakima Tribal and Mabton. 

Seniors Theo Anderson and Caleb Barron saw their high school golf year come to a close at the EWAC 2B golf event at Suncadia on Monday, May 9th. 

Golfers from DW, Columbia Burbank, Cle Elum, TCP, Mabton, Goldendale, White Swan, Warden and WWVA were looking to make it to the State Golf meet at Deer Park on May 24. 

 On the 18-hole, par 72 course, ten boys and eight girls qualified for the state meet. Unfortunately, DW players didn't make enough clutch shots to advance, stated Coach McGhan.  Their strength was the short game and putting but the course can be pretty tough if you're not hitting the fairway consistently, he added.  Coach McGhan is proud of the integrity and sportsmanship that his group has shown all season.  Anderson and Barron's enthusiasm and leadership will be missed next year. 

Scores at Suncadia:

Theo Anderson 114

Caleb Barron 115

Jay Dimak 117

Garrett Palmer 140

Claudia Benavides 150
