Oak Harbor misses state berth by 1 stroke / Boys golf

One stroke.

That’s what kept the Oak Harbor High School boys golf team from earning a state berth at the district tournament Monday and Tuesday, May 13 and 14, at Burlington’s Avalon Golf Course.

The Wildcats and Squalicum combined to shoot 1,373 strokes in the two-day district event, and the Storm edged Oak Harbor 686-687 to earn the fourth and final team berth into the state tournament.

Oak Harbor junior Nick Krantz, however, did qualify for state as an individual after finishing third overall with a 153.

Everett’s Andrew Martin was medalist with a five-over 149.

Krantz also qualified for state the past two seasons, finishing 24th last spring.

The top four teams move on to state. Everett won with 617, followed by Ferndale (652), Snohomish (679), Squalicum (686) and Oak Harbor (687) in the 14-school tournament.

The Wildcats were in third place after the first day of the tournament at 330 and held a nine-stroke lead over both Snohomish and Squalicum.

Oak Harbor then ballooned to 357 Wednesday to drop two spots.

Haven Brown shot 178 (79-99) for Oak Harbor, one stroke ahead of Nate Thompson (87-92) and Cole Valdez (88-91). Aidan Wyer finished at 201 (104-97).

The state 3A boys tournament is Tuesday and Wednesday, May 21 and 22, at Olympia’s Indian Summer Golf and Country Club.
