Bonney Lake, Enumclaw and White River golfers at state tournaments

Qualifying golfers from throughout the South Puget Sound League, both the 3A and 2A divisions, are teeing off this week in their respective state tournaments.

Qualifying golfers from throughout the South Puget Sound League, both the 3A and 2A divisions, are teeing off this week in their respective state tournaments.

The state qualifier for both Class 3A and 2A golfers was staged May 19 at the Gold Mountain complex in Bremerton. It provided certain players an opportunity to join those who had qualified for the state tournament during the fall’s regular season.

Bonney Lake

The Panthers have two girls and one boy competing at state tournament.

For the girls Courtney Campbell and Hayden Zumhofz will tee off today, Wednesday. Curtis Koltermann will represent the Panther boys at Canyon Lakes.


Enumclaw High will be represented by a strong contingent of 10 golfers when the Class 3A state tournaments tee off in the Tri-Cities.

The Class 3A boys will be playing the Canyon Lakes course in Kennewick while the 3A girls compete at the Horn Rapids course in Richland.

On the boys side, Josh Erickson, Jared Beals and Dylan Miller had earned their state berths last fall. During the May 19 qualifier at Gold Mountain, two more Hornet boys – Carson Erwin and Kidder McKee – punched their Tri-Cities tickets.

The story was much the same on the girls side, where the trio of Faith Hardersen, Kelsey Cunningham and Lexi Dechon had qualified for state during the fall’s regular season. Gaining state entry through the May 19 qualifier were Meagan Johnson and Kayleen Anderson.

Also competing in the spring qualifier for the EHS boys were Andrew Littman, Matt Hodgman, Caleb Coulter and Bill Miller. Also participating in the qualifier for the girls were Riley McCann and Kristin Podolak.

White River

White River will be sending nine golfers to the Spokane area for the 2A state tournament. Girls will play the MeadowWood course while the boys compete at Liberty Lake Golf Course; both are operated by Spokane County and sit near the Idaho border.

Representing the White River girls team at state will be Maci Goethals, Sydnee Scott, Georgia Lavinder, Sofia Lavinder and Jordanne Fray. The first four had earned their state trip in October at the conclusion of the regular season; Fray nabbed a state slot during the May 19 spring qualifier at the Gold Mountain Cascade Course in Bremerton.

Two other White River girls – Amanda Lance and Dani Barbee – had earned a spot in the spring qualifier.

There will be four White River boys competing in the state tournament, all having qualified during the regular season. Making the trip to Eastern Washington will be Cooper Franklin, Drew Kacer, Bryce Dahl and Matt Walker.

Four other Hornets – Niko Dymarczyk, Trent Buchanan, Hunter Ford and Sawyer Mills – had earned admission to the May 19 spring qualifier.
