Ferndale’s boys’ golf team advanced all five golfers for the second day after making the cut in the Class 3A Northwest District Tournament on Monday, May 18, at Battle Creek Golf Course.
The Golden Eagles finished with a team score of 427, good for third place in the tournament.
Stanwood won the district championship with a score of 408.
Dane Larsen and Daniel Erickson shot an 81 to lead Ferndale in the tournament. Keenan Souve shot an 83, Tristen Miller a 90 and Devon Bennett a 92 on the day.
“It’s a course they’re not familiar with and I thought they played well,” Ferndale coach Joel Wark said in a phone interview. “I thought all the kids did a nice job keeping their cool. It’s hard to do on an unfamiliar course.”
After the first day of the district tournament the field is cut to the top 36 and anyone within 10 strokes of the lead. The top 17 golfers from day two will advance to the state tournament set to take place on May 27 and 28 at Canyon Lakes Golf Course in Kennewick.
“Looking at scores, a 165 or better overall should be good enough to go (to state),” Wark said.
