Sergio Sanchez, Dillon Pratt, Jake Becht and the Cle Elum-Roslyn High boys’ golf team are the Eastern Washington Athletic Conference’s back-to-back best.

The Warriors won their district meet with a 375 ahead of Tri-Cities Prep (405) and Goldendale (415) Monday at Suncadia Resort in Cle Elum.

Sanchez, Pratt and Becht led the field and took second and seventh with respective 38-43—81, 44-43–87 and 53-47–100 rounds to qualify for the WIAA Class 1B/2B Boys’ & Girls’ Golf State Championships scheduled for May 24-25 at Deer Park Golf Club, and Evan Stubbs (11th, 53-54–107) will be an alternate.

“Sergio and Dillon continued their league dominance finishing first and second again,” Cle Elum-Roslyn coach Ryan Whitaker said. “Jake played a solid round to qualify for state. Evan, Jayden and Colin had a rough day, but Evan did win another playoff to earn the first alternate spot.”

Jayden Graff and Colin Engle shot 55-54—109 and 79-63—142.

On the girls’ side, Norah Nicholls made state by placing fifth with a 58-61–119, and Kayla Barr (ninth, 64-71–135) is an alternate as Columbia Burbank’s Shayley Larson (52-55—107) medaled.

Jessica Ellithorpe and Nikole Anderson followed with a 76-76—152 and 84-72—156.

“Norah continues to impress as a freshman, finishing fifth and qualifying for state,” Whitaker said. “Kayla had a great round and earned the first alternate spot. Very proud of all the girls’ effort this year.”
