"I am very happy and proud of my team," said Seaside girls golf coach Jason Kunde, following the girls district win at the Gearhart Golf Links on Tuesday.
"As I stated at the beginning of the year, I was considering this a re-building year as I had a lot of first and second year golfers, led by Alyson Fields, who has played on my team for my entire four year tenure. Not only did she step up her game, she also stepped up as a leader and in essence became my assistant coach, while leading by example.
"I had a team in the truest sence of the word, they all rooted for one another and pushed each other to become better. They also committed themselves in practice, I guess what I am saying is all these girls made the decision to get better and win, and they accomplished that."
The Gulls finished the tournament with a score of 860, followed by Tillamook who posted a score of 938, Astoria with 972, and Scappoose with 1018. The tournament began on Monday at the Quail Valley Golf Course in the valley, but finished on the home course in Gearhart.
