Plateau prep golfers advance to second round of golf

A trio of Plateau prep golfers advanced to the second round of the state championships last week, gaining the full 36-hole experience.

Eight contestants from Enumclaw and White River high schools had qualified for the state Class 3A and 2A tournaments, some during last fall's regular season and some during a qualifying tournament in mid-May. The state tournaments were staged May 28 and 29 at a variety of sites.

Enumclaw

Maddie Pillo and Kadyn Eldridge survived Day 1 and advanced to Day 2 at the Lewis River course in Woodland. Both were making their second appearance in the state tourney.

Pillo shot an opening-round 87, followed by a 93 on Day 2. Her 180 total left her tied for 27th place. Eldridge carded a 93 for her first 18 holes, then added a 94 on Thursday to finish at 187, tied for 34th.

Needing a round of 94 to make the cut, Faith Hardersen shot a 99 and did not advance to Day 2.

In the 3A boys tournament, Enumclaw's Josh Erickson finished in a tie for 25th place. He toured the course with a 77 the first day and 80 on Day 2 for a 157 total.

Teammate Kolton Tinney barely missed the cut, shooting 82 on Day 1. Golfers in the field needed a score or 81 or better to advance.

White River

Three from White River had earned a slot in the Class 2A field, but none played well enough on Day 1 to play a second round.

Sydnee Scott and Maci Goethals played The Class Golf Club in Spanaway. Needing a round of 104 to advance, Goethals shot a 106 and Scott finished at 115.

On the boys' side, Ryan Kolisch played the Chambers Bay course in University Place, completing his round at 102. The cutoff for advancing was 87.
