Juniors tee up on Whidbey

Over 100 of the best young golfers in the state met at Whidbey Golf and Country Club Monday morning to compete in a Washington Junior Golf Association Tournament.

Of all those competitors, the four local participants represented Oak Harbor very well.

Judd Ford, 11, took the boys 8-11 year-old title, shooting a 8-over-par 44 for nine holes. He finished two strokes better than his nearest opponent.

Phil Reedy, 12, tied Reid Martin of Mukilteo shooting an 80 through 18 holes, but eventually came in second after losing a tie-breaker to Martin.

With their high finishes, both Ford and Reedy earned the right to compete in the District One Championship July 19-20 at Legion Memorial Golf Course in Everett.

Robert Tercero, 16, finished 11th in the boys 16-17 year-old division with an 87, while Joshua Whitley, 14, shot an 86 for an eighth place tie in the 14-15-year old division.

Other big winners on the day included: Tim Ganahal of Mercer Island in the boys 16-17 year-old division, Tommy Powers of Mukilteo in the boys 14-15 division, Rachel Casselman of Mukilteo in the girls 16-17 year-old division, Pearl Schuman of Friday Harbor in the girls 14-15 year-old division, Jessica Davis of Bellingham in the girls 12-13 year-old division and Kimberly Santiago of Lynwood in the girls 8-11 year-old division.
