Lewiston High's Fike signs with Warriors
Rachel Fike, a senior at Lewiston High School, has signed a letter-of-intent to play golf at Lewis-Clark State College starting in the fall, Warrior women’s coach Steve Tilden has announced.
Fike is a four-year letterwinner for the Bengals and is enjoying a solid season at LHS. She shot a personal best of 80 in a tournament at The Links Course in Post Falls earlier this year at the Lakeland Invitational, and also was third at the Big East Tournament with an 85. Fike was Lewiston’s top scorer at the Clarkston Invitational with an 83 as the Bengals placed second overall.
As a junior, Fike was consistently the No. 2 scorer on the team and helped the Bengals to a fourth-place finish at the Idaho State Class 5A Tournament. During her sophomore season, she shot a then personal best 86 at the district tournament to help the Bengals qualify for State.
“Rachel has worked real hard on her game the last few years and the results are beginning to show,” Tilden said. “It is always nice when you can add someone from Lewiston to our roster. I think Rachel will be a real asset to our team in the future both on and off the course.”
Fike also is an excellent student and was on Lewiston High’s fall honor roll for having a grade point average between 3.50 and 3.99. She is also active in the community and her church.
This past week, the Warrior women earned an at-large berth to the NAIA National Championships, which will be played May 12-15 at Meadowbrook Municipal Golf Course in Rapid City, S.D. It’s the sixth straight year the Warriors have competed at nationals.
