STATE HIGH SCHOOL GOLF TOURNAMENTS: Viking boys third again in 5A; St. Maries battles back for fourth in 2A

5A

NAMPA — As Coeur d’Alene boys golf coach Chase Bennett described, the goals were set long before stepping on the bus to travel south for the state 5A tournament on Saturday afternoon.

This year’s first two goals for the Vikings — win a regional title, and qualify for state. The third gual — have a really good finish at state.

Coeur d’Alene finished third in the boys tournament for the second straight year on Tuesday, finishing with a 307-323—630, and bringing home another trophy for a top-four finish.

“With the talent of the other teams down here, third was a really good finish,” said Bennett, in his third year as coach. “All three of the top teams scored some really good numbers.”

Boise won the tournament with a 291-303—594, followed by Eagle with a 304-310—614.

Coeur d’Alene senior Cole Jaworski, who has signed with the Community Colleges of Spokane, finished sixth with a 74-77—151 to earn medalist honors for finishing in the top 10.

“He’s been playing really well the last few years for us,” Bennett said. “He’s been really consistent. And if you can do that in this game, and be at your best at different courses and conditions, that’s really impressive. To be that consistent, he’ll do well in college.”

Four of the five Vikings were on the state team last year, with the lone exception being freshman Grant Potter.

Reid Piron of Boise won the tournament with a 71-72—143, 1 over par, leading the Brave to their first team title since 1991.

Lauren Parish of Rocky Mountain shot a 68-68—136, 6 under par, winning the girls tournament by 10 strokes.

Coeur d’Alene’s girls were fifth, 16 shots off fourth-place Mountain View. Taylor Potter tied for 18th with a 178 to lead the Vikings, who brought home a trophy last year after finishing fourth.

The state 5A and 4A golf tournaments move to the fall this fall, part of a two-year experimental run.

4A

MERIDIAN — Lakeland junior Brady Hanna finished tied for 30th with a two-day total of 180 at Lakeview Golf Club.

“That kid is a battler and didn’t shoot what he wanted to shoot today,” Lakeland coach Rick Anderson said. “The course was fair, but difficult in the rough. He wanted to shoot better, but had four swings that wound up costing him 11 strokes. It was just one of those days, but a great experience for him. He got a lot of experience playing against those good golfers from around the state.”

Bishop Kelly won the boys state title in a playoff, beating Twin Falls.

Middleton’s Curtis Seidel was boys champion with a 76-71—147.

Dallis Shockey of Minico was girls champion with a 77-85—162, leading the Spartans to the program’s first girls title.

STAR — With his boys team sitting in seventh after the first day, St. Maries coach Bryan Chase stressed to the Lumberjacks the importance of finishing strong on the second day at River Birch Golf Course.

“Sure, no problem,” his players replied.

The Lumberjacks posted a second day total of 344, finishing fourth with a 712.

“They all kind of PR’ed today,” Chase said. “They were all in good spirits and it kind of carried throughout the day. As word got out how good some of them on the back side were playing, it just kept going. We knew on Monday night that we’d have to make up four or five shots each to have a shot at a trophy. And the guys just said, ‘sure, no problem’ and went out and did it. We kind of knew where we were coming down to the final four groups, which kind of made it fun.”

St. Maries senior Seth Swallows posted a second-round 72, finishing third with an 80-72—152.

“He could have played a lot better as well,” Chase said. “He had five birdies on the back nine and gave himself a chance to finish in the top three.

Cole Valley Christian swept the team titles.

Genesis Prep’s boys were sixth.

St. Maries’ girls finished sixth.

Parker Wallace (75-72—147) won the boys title by one shot for Cole Valley Christian.

Challis’ Kelli Ann Strand, who shot an 8-under 64 on Monday, won the girls tournament by 21 shots with a 129 after shooting 65 on Tuesday.
