Fields finishes 5th at state | Golf
Coupeville High School's Christine Fields pasted another ribbon to her growing scrapbook by placing fifth in the state 1A girls golf tournament at the Spanaway Golf Course Wednesday and Thursday, May 28 and 29.
Fields shot a 173 (84/89). It was the second top-10 placing for the junior and the best-ever by a CHS golfer. She was eighth as a freshman, as well as 15th last season.
"Wednesday she played strong," said her father, Mike Fields. "We've been building consistency back into her swing and that really showed Wednesday. She still had a few missed opportunities but she took advantage of most." "Thursday she started off the front great again but failed to get that spark she normally gets while playing the back nine," he added. "Too many missed putts and no pars on her second nine Thursday left her with a higher score than she would have liked. She is still very pleased with taking fifth place and sees it as a good opening to her summer season."
Elma's Lauryn Keating won the tournament with a 151 (78/73). Fields finished 13 strokes out of fourth and two strokes ahead of sixth-place Rosie Portillo, a training partner from South Whidbey High School.
