3 of 5 make cut | State golf

Three of the five local high school golfers who qualified for the state tournament survived the first-day cut Tuesday, May 21.

Oak Harbor's Annie Leete and Coupeville siblings Austin and Christine Fields earned spots in the final round today (Wednesday, May 22).

Oak Harbor's Bree Roderos shot 100 in the girls 3A tournament at Lewis River and missed the cut of 95.

Wildcat Mac Kerfoot posted an 83 in the 3A boys meet at Tri-Mountain; 81 was the cutoff.

Leete's 79 put her in sixth place heading into the final round of the 3A girls tournament. Chloe Bartek of Columbia River leads with a 70.

For Coupeville senior Austin Fields, it was a close shave. He shot an 85, the cutoff score, good for 39th overall at Lake Spanaway.

Austin recovered from a rugged first nine to shoot 39 over the back side, including a five-foot par putt on 18 to slip into the second round.

Sophomore sister Christine is in 11th place among the girls with an 88, two shots out of sixth. She, too, got hot on the back nine. On the front she carded a 47 with four three-putt holes. She closed out with a 41, which included six pars and two double bogeys.

Ross Kukula of Ilwaco leads the 1A boys with a 71.

Life Christian Academy's Madisen Bentley fired a 71 to top the girls field.
