Season ends with win over Bothell; Worley advances to State

  • Written by Derek Johnson

A challenging season came to a close earlier this month, as winless Woodinville defeated equally winless Bothell by two strokes to finish the campaign victorious.

Ruth Krochmalny, in her first season coaching the boys’ team, was happy to get that win. “I felt bad for Bothell because they were in the same boat as we were, in terms of wins and losses,” she said, “but I'm definitely glad we won.”
Six of her golfers qualified for the district match that was played on Oct. 14. Joe Worley, Brian Rutherford, River Richmond, Shane Malloy, Ankit Tomar and Matt Wilham all battled the weather elements at Snohomish Golf Course for the rights to go to State. Joe Worley had the best day, including an eagle on hole #10, to earn eighth place. He'll move onto the State finals in Spokane in May 2015.
