State golf Day 1: Kamiak boys, Kim in 2nd place

The Knights sit 10 strokes out of 1st, Murphy junior in 5th, Lakewood sisters make team history and more.

Led by a strong effort from senior Daniel Kim, the Kamiak High School boys golf team sits just 10 strokes back of first place after Day 1 of the Class 4A boys state golf tournament Tuesday at Indian Summer Country Club in Olympia.

The second-place Knights, who won the most recent 4A state tournament in 2019, posted a four-man score of 301. Bellarmine Prep leads with a 291.

Kim fired a 70 and is tied for second place with Bellarmine Prep’s Max Burns. Gonzaga Prep’s Alex Cooke shot a 68 to secure the Day 1 lead.

Brandon Suh (76, 14th place), Aaron Choi (77, tied for 22nd) and Brandon Yoon (79, tied for 30th) rounded out Kamiak’s team scoring.

Archbishop Murphy’s Nick Ennis stayed in title contention with a 74, good for a tie for fifth, at the 2A boys tournament at Capitol City Golf Club in Olympia. He’s five strokes behind leader Von Wasson (69) of Centralia.

Kiana Schroeder (76) sits in fifth place and is seven strokes off the pace set by White River’s Brooke Gelinas (69) at the 2A girls tournament at Tumwater Valley Golf Club. Malia Schroeder (80) is tied for 11th.
