WIAA state golf update, plus a couple of youth baseball scores

Three Valley high school golfers advanced into the final round of their respective WIAA state tournaments today, after making the cut yesterday.

In the 2A girls’ tournament, in Spanaway, Cedarcrest’s Amanda Fairbanks fired a round of 99 on the par-72 Classic Golf Club course to head into today’s round tied for 23rd. Teammates Bella LaBate and Caitlin Brenner both carded 108’s, which missed the cut by four strokes; the cut was 104. Fife’s Kendall Gray fired a 79 to take the lead into today, so it is not likely Fairbanks will contend for a state title.

In the 3A boys, at Lewis River Golf Course in Woodland, Mount Si’s Alex Nelson fired an 80 on the par-72 layout, barely making the cut in a tie for 33rd. The cut at this event was 81. Fort Vancouver’s Spencer Tibbits carded a 70 and holds the lead going into today’s final round, but Juanita’s Frank Garber and Interlake’s Grant Cole are both in the hunt, so while Nelson is not expected to be in position later today for a shot at the title, others from Kingco could be.

And in the 3A girls, at the Tri-Mountain Golf Course in Ridgefield, Wildcat Caitlin Maralack fired an 80 as well, good for fourth overall after round one. She could contend for the crown later today, although the top three golfers are all at least six strokes ahead, led by Mount Spokane’s Sierra Bedcizek, who fired a 72. Fellow Mount Si teammate Tabitha Dorn narrowly missed out on today’s final round, carding a 96, two shots over the cut of 94.

Rounds for today’s golfers start up later today.

Now to the scoreboard:

U16 youth: Washington A’s 1, RIPS 0 – Reid Lutz, a Mount Si High School junior varsity player this spring, went 1-2 as the A’s won a pitcher’s duel over RIPS in Seattle.

U16 youth: Rock Creek 8, Puget Sound Baysox 0: Mount Si JV’er Mason Marenco went hitless (0-1) for Rock Creek, but their pitcher, Logan Fewkes, fired a two-hitter as Rock Creek rolled to the mercy-rule win at Skyline High School in Sammamish; the game ended after six due to that mercy rule
