Ethan Casto began his senior season at Western Washington University on fire.
The Snohomish High School graduate, who’s now a member of the Vikings’ men’s golf team, was named the Great Northwest Athletic Conference Men’s co-Golfer of the Week on Monday.
Casto tied for second at the season-opening Saint Martin’s Invitational, held Friday and Saturday at The Home Course in DuPont, with a three-round score of 11-under 205. He finished one stroke behind the winner, the University of British Columbia’s Ethan de Graaf. He helped Western finish third among the tournament’s 14 teams.
Casto shared the award with Northwest Nazarene’s Isaac Emerson, who also tied for second at the Saint Martin’s Invitational.
