GEARHART — The gap just keeps getting wider between Seaside girls golf and the rest of the District 1 teams.

After winning last year’s district title by 112 strokes, the Lady Gulls won the 2012 championship by a whopping 143 strokes over the nearest competitor.

The Gulls completed their title-winning effort by carding a 392 team score Tuesday at Gearhart Golf Links on the second day of the league championship tournament.

Seaside’s two-day total was 812, while Scappoose came back on the second day and made up a 27-stroke deficit after Day 1 to edge Astoria for second place.

The Indians finished at 955, followed by Astoria (957) and Rainier (1,011).

Even more impressive was Seaside sophomore Katy Kawasoe winning medalist honors with a two-day total 162, 45 strokes head of Scappoose golfer Lauren Hickman and Seaside teammate Ashley Bassett.

Kawasoe fired a 77 in Tuesday’s second round on her home course to win her second straight district championship.

Rounding out the Seaside scores were Kathy Lin (221), Emma Hassan (222) and Bao Tran Nhan (234).

Seaside returns to action for next week’s state tournament, Monday and Tuesday at Eagle Crest Resort.

Astoria shot a 489 on Day 2, with Kendra Scheel finishing with a two-day total 217, followed by Shelby Dursse (242), Bryana Beaulieu (247) and Kelsie Hoppes (251).
