Sure it’s summer break, but on the golf course Friday Harbor's Kendra is still at the top of her game.

The soon-to-be high school senior earned a berth in the Washington Juniors Golf Association state tournament by finishing second, one stroke off the lead, last week at the WJGA District 1 Championship, at Peninsula Golf Course, in Port Angeles.

Meeker, a back-to-back state tournament qualifier for the Friday Harbor High School golf team, shot 85 on the first day of the two-day district championship and 83 the following day for a 168 two-day total.

Meeker, 16, is among 21 girls from across the state that qualified to compete at the WJGA state tournament, July 31, and Aug. 1-2, in Dupont. Meeker, known for hitting some of the longest tee-shots of any girl in the competition, 250 yards or more, will be competing in WJGA's 16 and 17-year-old division at the state tournament.
