State golf roundup: Everett boys finish 2nd in team standings

Kamiak’s Alvin Kwak shoots even par to finish tied for 5th in 4A boys.

The Everett boys golf team finished in second place at the 3A state tournament Wednesday, while Kamiak’s Alvin Kwak and South Whidbey’s Kolby Heggenes recorded top-five finishes in their respective state tourneys.

The Seagulls were led by Andrew Martin, who tied for seventh place after shooting 69 on Wednesday to finish with a two-day score of 146.

“(Our golfers) felt they had a chance to win (the title) all the way until the end,” said Everett coach Darrell Olson. “They played really hard, but had some hiccups (Wednesday). They had their sights set on the big prize, so to get so close and come up short was disappointing. But I told them to keep the big picture in mind — we had a heck of a season. They’ll bounce back. They’re all back next year, so this was great experience for them.”

Kwak shot 72 to finish his first round Tuesday two shots back of the lead in the 4A boys tournament, and shot 72 again Wednesday to tie for fifth place, the third top-10 finish of his prep career.

Heggenes recorded her third top-three state tournament performance, shooting 76 for a two-day score of 150 to finish third at the 1B/2B/1A girls tournament.
