Two of the three Oak Harbor golfers competing in the District 1 Washington Junior Golf Association Tournament at the Gallery Golf Course Monday and Tuesday, July 16 and 17, qualified for the state championships.

Annie Leete won the girls 14-15 division and earned the only berth awarded to that group with a two-day total of 178 (88, 90). Christine Fields finished third at 194 (96, 98) and did not qualify.

Haven Brown placed fourth in the boys 8-11 division and picked up one of five state slots awarded in that division. He fired an 86 (42, 44); Devin Kim of Mukilteo won with an 82 (42, 40).

"Spots for the state championship are allocated based on division size and scoring average through the season relative to the five other districts," said Valerie Foster, tournament director.

The state championships will be played on three courses, Meridian Valley Country Club, Fairwood Golf and Country Club and Riverbend Golf Course, in Kent July 25 to 27.
