State Championship 2020
Lauryn Nguyen and Ethan Evans Capture Girls & Boys Titles at 44th Annual WJGA State Championship
Lauryn Nguyen of Seattle fired a final round 4-under par 68 to cap off a tremendous week to win the 44th Annual WJGA State Girls Championship being held at Manito G&CC in Spokane. Her three day total of 14-under par 202 gave her an eight-shot victory over Tacoma’s Montgomery Ferreira. This is Nguyen’s second WJGA Girls’ overall title, also winning the championship in 2017 at Meadow Springs CC in Richland.
On the boys’ side, Ethan Evans of Mercer Island shot a final round even-par 71 to capture the Boys’ overall title with a three day total of 8-under par 206. Evans eagled the par-5 14th hole to take command with a three shot lead and cruised to the clubhouse to win by three shots. There was a four-way tie for second place at 5-under par with Mukilteo’s Daniel Kim, Stanwood’s Conrad Chisman, Dupont’s Jahan Bains, and Spokane’s Tommy Kimmel.
In all 258 boys and girls competed over three days to determine boys and girls state champions in age divisions of 8-11, 12-13, 14-15 and 16-18. The field is cut to roughly 85 total players after two rounds.
