STATE HIGH SCHOOL GOLF TOURNAMENTS: Coeur d'Alene boys third, girls fifth after first day

NAMPA — Despite all the experience, there still can be nerves.

Coeur d’Alene’s boys shot 307 on Monday and sit in third place after the first day of the state 5A golf tournament at RedHawk Golf Course.

The Vikings are three shots behind defending state champion Eagle heading into today’s final round. Boise, which counted two even-par 71s and a 72, shot 291 and leads by 13 shots.

“I’m impressed with the way we grinded it out. We really rallied back,” Coeur d’Alene boys coach Chase Bennett said. “We had higher scores at the turn. Everybody improved their scores on the back, which says a lot about their toughness. We played the front nine first and the back is a lot more challenging, and we played it a lot better.”

Coeur d’Alene senior Cole Jaworski shot 74 and is tied for fifth after the first day. Viking senior Parker Freeman shot 76 and is tied for 10th. Freeman finished seventh, Jaworski ninth last year at state, when it was held at Avondale Golf Club in Hayden Lake.

Four of this year’s five Vikings at state were on last year’s team that finished third.

“Boise was on fire — they had a couple kids go back-to-back eagles,” Bennett said. “But they’re definitely catchable.”

Will Strong and Reid Piron of Boise each shot 71 and are tied for first on what Bennett called a links-style course.

“We left ourselves in a spot where we're going to have to play really, really well” to challenge for a state title, Bennett said. “Most of the strokes we left out there were around the green. I think we’ll be able to shave a few strokes off tomorrow.”

Coeur d’Alene’s girls shot 353 and are in fifth place, two strokes behind Mountain View. The top four teams bring home trophies. The Vikings finished fourth last year at state.

Defending champion Rocky Mountain shot 308 and leads by 26 strokes over Boise.

Peyton Blood shot 87 to lead Coeur d’Alene on Monday.

“The girls had a tremendous first day,” first-year Viking girls coach Jeff Lake said. “We overcame a few nerves and jitters on the front nine and posted some quality scores on the back nine with four of our girls shooting in the 80s. The girls are confident, playing well and having a blast.”

Lauren Parish of Rocky Mountain, who was fifth last year at state, shot a 3-under 68 and leads by one stroke over Maddie Montoya of Borah, who was third last year. Brooke Patterson of Eagle, second last year, is in third after shooting 71.
