It won't be her last round of golf this season, but, so far, it was her best.

Friday Harbor High School senior Kendra Meeker shot a 79 at the Tri-District regional tournament to clinch a fourth-consecutive appearance at the state 1A golf championship.

Meeker finished second overall among 36 players competing in the women's field of the Tri-District, Tuesday, May 20, at Gold Mountain Golf Course in Bremerton, three strokes behind Tri-District champion Hannah Hoh of King's High School. The 16 players with the lowest scores advance to State.

"As she prepared to tee off we set a goal to go out and enjoy the round, do your best but have fun and enjoy the moment," Coach Jack Rice said. "She had a smile on her face for most of the day and played a great round of golf."

Meeker finished sixth overall at State in her sophomore year and 12th as a freshman.

Hosted by Tacoma's Lake Spanaway Golf Club, the two-day 1A state tournament get under way May 28.
