Two Wolverine golfers make the cut to compete at State

The Snake River Valley conference 18-hole district tournament took place at Timberstone Golf Course on Monday, May 9. Much like the regular season, the weather was quite volatile. The golfers played through high winds, a bit of sleet and rain, and of course freezing temperatures. 
 Battling through the elements, Weiser Wolverine’s, Carter Williams and Lucy Hickey earned spots to compete at the Idaho State 3A Championships at Riverbend Golf Course on May 16 and 17. 
 This one-day tournament is the only tournament that counts for the players and teams vying for a trip to the state tournament. Everyone comes in on level playing ground. Representation at the golf state competition is based on the number of teams competing at the district tournament. With both the boy’s and girl’s divisions having between four and six teams at the district tournament, the top two teams qualify for state. 
 Golf also allows individuals to qualify on their own if their team does not make it. They allow as many individuals to qualify as there are complete teams playing in the district tournament. The SRV girls had five teams competing, granting five girls to represent the league and the boys had six teams, giving them spots for the six lowest boys.
 At the end of the day on Monday, the McCall Vandal girls’ team had come out on top with a score of 440. Fruitland earned second place with a score of 460. Both earned a berth to the state tournament.
 The Weiser girls team ended their season in third place, with a tournament score of 476. The Wolverines were led by Lucy Hickey with a 109. Paige Johnson and Serena Boles each had a 121, Jasi Yraguen 125, and Hannah Grace 126. 
 Five SRV individual girls earned a state playoff position. Weiser’s Lucy Hickey in fifth place with a 109, McCall’s Piper Lamm with a 107 in fourth, Homedale’s Gwen Parker third place with 106, McCall’s Lexi Larsen second place with 95 and in first place Homedale’s Tai Uranga with a solid 80. Uranga, Parker, and Hickey will be competing as individuals at the state tournament since their teams did not make the cut. 
 The Homedale boys played very well in the district tournament, as a team they took first place with a score of 354. McCall earned second place with a score of 372. Both Homedale and McCall advance to the state tournament. 
 The Fruitland boys missed the mark in third place and a team score of 378. The Weiser boys finished in fourth with a team score of 410. 
 The Weiser Wolverines were led by Carter Williams with a 75, Devyn Young finished with 101, Luke Sarich 109, Braxton Franek 125, and Kash Cobb 129. 
 Six SRV individual boys were granted the state tournament nod since six teams competed in the district tournament. Weiser’s Carter Williams earned medalist honors and first place with a score of 75 a solid 10 strokes ahead of McCall’s Thomas Knudson in second place with an 85. Homedale wrapped up top honors for the rest of the boy’s spots. Luke Henry had an 87 for third, McCoy Swallow an 88 and fourth, Willie White had an 89 and fifth place, and Kinley Balkouetz took sixth place with a 90. 
 Since both McCall and Homedale have boys’ teams representing the SRV at state, Weiser’s Carter Williams is the lone SRV individual boy to earn a spot at the state tournament. 
 No state tournament scores were available at the time of printing.
