Hurt, Saucier place at state

Two Bainbridge golfers ended their season on a successful note at the 3A state tournaments this week.

Austin Hurt placed second at the boys tournament at Indian Canyon in Spokane.

He shot a four under 69 on the first day to tie for fourth place, as only 10 percent of the 80 golfers at the event shot par or better.

Jamie Neill shot a 73 to make the cut and play on the second day, as all of the golfers navigated through thick rough, soft, bumpy greens and a breeze that picked up in the afternoon.

On the second day, the rain caused the greens to get even more bumpy and frustrate many a golfer.

Hurt shot four under on the front nine, but struggled on two holes on the back nine, finishing out with a 70.

The senior’s gross score of 139 put him at five under, two back of Clarkston’s Joel Dahmen, who shot rounds of 66 and 71 to win the state championship.

Neill lost his ball on the first hole, but recovered to make par.

The junior struggled the rest of the way, shooting a 79 on the second day.

His two day gross score of 152 placed him in a tie for 27th with Lynden’s Graham Kent.

The duo’s team score of 58.5 was good enough for fourth behind O’Dea.

Mercer Island took home the team trophy with a score of 77 points.

In the girls tournament, Saucier shot a 76 on the first day at Meadow Wood Golf Course in Liberty Lake, 15 miles east of Spokane.

On a sunny, but windy day, the junior parred the first two holes, but then scored bogies on the next two holes.

Saucier came back to par the 5th and 6th hole, then fire off three straight birdies to lower her score to a one under before hitting the back nine.

There, she scored three pars and two bogeys before hitting one into a water hazard, then after her drop rolled into a divot, she deposited another one into the water.

She finished with a four over to tie for fifth place.

The second day saw Saucier play steady, but couldn’t get anything going on a windy day, shooting a 79 to finish with a gross score of 155, good enough for sixth place behind Paige Rachor of Bellingham and Brittany Tallmann of Issaquah, last year’s state champion.

Freshman Katrina Hegge of Seattle Prep was the state champion, as she shot a three under to collect her first title.
