EHS Golfers earn 4A state berth

A quartet of Enumclaw High golfers are headed to the Class 4A state tournament and five others will have one more opportunity to advance to state play.

A quartet of Enumclaw High golfers are headed to the Class 4A state tournament and five others will have one more opportunity to advance to state play.

That’s due to their play spread over two days last week at the Gold Mountain Golf Complex in Bremerton. Gold Mountain’s par-72 Olympic Course played host to North Puget Sound League boys, while the Cascade course challenged the NPSL girls Oct. 17 and 18.


After two full rounds, Enumclaw’s Jared Beals, Kidder McKee and Matt Hodgman qualified for the spring state tournament, to be played in late May at the Liberty Lake course near Spokane. Beals, a senior, shot rounds of 75 and 77 for a 152 total; McKee, also a senior, fired 76 and 80 for 156; and Hodgman, a junior, opened with 79 and finished with 81, ending at 160.

The top 14 finishers earned an automatic state berth. Beals placed fourth, McKee was seventh and Hodgman tied for 10th.

Senior Andrew Littman shot rounds of 88 and 81, leaving him tied for 21st in the field. He will play in a spring qualifying tournament, getting one final opportunity to advance to the May 26-27 state tourney.

Playing at state is nothing new for Beals, who will be playing for the third time, and McKee, who earned his second state berth.

The Gold Mountain tourney also served as the third North Puget Sound League tournament of the season. The Enumclaw High boys went undefeated on all three occasions.


Senior Lexi Dechon will again be playing in the state tournament, thanks to her two-day total of 163 at Gold Mountain. She opened with an 85 and improved to 78 on the second day, placing fifth in the field.

She will next play May 26-27 at MeadowWood Golf Course at Liberty Lake, just east of Spokane.

Advancing to the spring qualifier – keeping their hopes alive for the state tournament – were senior Maddison Gates (202), sophomores Taylor Anglin (196) and Kennedy VanHoof (205) and freshman Emma Murphy (201).

The two days in Bremerton saw the EHS girls place second in the NPSL Medalist Tournament.
