Prep golf: Five golfers to watch

Alvin Kwak

Kamiak | Soph.

Kwak tied for ninth place at last year’s Class 4A state meet, shooting a two-day score of 150.

“Alvin is probably the finest high school golfer in Snohomish County,” Knights coach Vic Alinen said. “As an underclassman Alvin has played in and won national tournaments, and as a sophomore he has great expectations to capture the 4A state championship and lead Kamiak to a state championship as well. It doesn’t matter what the weather conditions are — Alvin scores well. With the heart of a champion, he hates to lose.”

Jack McClincy

Archbishop Murphy | Sr.

McClincy tied for eighth place at last year’s Class 2A state meet, shooting a two-day total of 154. He was a first-team All-Cascade Conference pick.

“All aspects of his game are improving, and he is a great competitor,” Wildcats coach Jack Serwold said. “He has been a captain for the past two years and is a respected team leader. He is an outstanding student, sets high goals for himself and his team and looks forward to his senior season.”

Jane Kim

Kamiak | Soph.

Kim tied for 17th place at last year’s state meet with a two-day total of 157. She was a first-team All-Wesco 4A selection.

“Jane is a terrific person and golfer,” Knights coach Dan Murnan said. “She has a beautiful, rhythmic swing that makes her very consistent. Jane is very dedicated and she is an excellent teammate. She will have a very successful season.”

Jac Longstreth

Shorecrest | Sr.

Longstreth tied for 13th place at last year’s 2A state meet with a two-day total of 175. She was a first-team All-Wesco 3A/2A South selection.

“Jac has a tremendous work ethic and is highly competitive,” Scots coach Bob Quiles said. “It is because of this that she has qualified for the state tourney the past three years and has been an integral part of the Shorecrest team. She is a sweet kid who really wants to improve, compete and win.”

Emily Burdett

King’s | Jr.

Burdett placed 12th at last year’s 1A state meet with a two-day total of 187. She was a second-team All-Cascade Conference selection.

“She works on maximizing her personal potential and embraces the challenges in practices and at matches,” Knights coach Simonette Sancho said. “She is an honest and mindful player, she plays smart, she understands her abilities, she evaluates her options, and is really good at controlling her mind and concentrating on what she needs to do next.”
