Holy Names ran away from the field with a score of 638 strokes, while Bainbridge totaled 738 and Seattle Prep 742. Eastside Catholic and Bishop Blanchet had 757 and 780 strokes, respectively, in the two-day tournament at Jefferson Park and West Seattle.

Bourland’s 80 was bested only by Tan’s 77 on the second-day of play on the wet Jefferson Park course.
Bainbridge senior captain Ryan Nottingham placed 11th with an 88-90–178 score, while junior Peyton Lunzer shot a 93-100 for 16th. They join Bourland as qualifiers for next spring’s district tournament, which includes golfers from the Metro and Kingco leagues.
