ARLINGTON — Arling-ton High School junior Anthony Allen tied for second place in a Wesco North 4A tournament played on his home turf at Gleneagle Golf Course in Arlington on April 12.

Allen scored a 35 on the 9-hole course and tied for second place with Sean Brill of Snohomish High School. He was one stroke away from first place. Five other teams attended the tournament including Marysville-Pilchuck, Stanwood, Snohomish, Lake Stevens and Monroe. As a team, the Eagles ranked second to Snohomish finishing with a score of 196, nine strokes behind Snohomish’s 187. Wind and heavy rain last week resulted in a wet course on Thursday.

“The team did very well.  We took second behind a very strong Snohomish team,” said AHS Golf Head Coach Greg Dailer. The first-place medalist at the tournament, senior Zach Martinson, also hails from Snohomish. The Arlington team currently ranks second overall to Snohomish, with a one-stroke separation. AHS varsity golfers are headed to an away match at Snohomish on April 23 and hope to bring the team up to a ranking above their competitor.

“We will just continue to work and get better every match,” Dailer said.

The final AHS individual scores were senior Jack Lindley, 39; senior Karl Biesler, 38; junior Anthony Allen, 35; junior Cody McLane, 43, and junior David Bianchi, 55.

Following the upcoming Snohomish match, AHS varsity golfers are set to compete in Oak Harbor on May 2 and at another Wesco 4A tournament on May 8 at Cedarcrest Golf Course in Marysville. After that, the team heads to the Wesco 4A district tournament, which is scheduled for May 14-16 at Legion Memorial Golf Course in Everett.
