Mount Si junior Tabitha Dorn competed starting Monday, May 21, at the state girls golf championships in Spokane.

State is Monday through Wednesday at the Esmerelda Golf Course in Spokane.

Dorn qualified for state at districts, held May 14 at Riverbend Golf Course. She came in 21st with her best round of nine this season in the first part of the tournament, a 43, one stroke better than her previous personal best. On the back nine, she shot a 49.

“She made it on the number,” said head coach Brandon Proudfoot.

Considering that Mount Si only plays 18-hole matches in the postseason, it was a doubly impressive accomplishment.

“Tabitha improved right through the season,” Proudfoot said.

Dorn placed 11th in the Kingco Tournament, held May 8 at Willows Run Golf Course, with a 96, followed by freshman Olivia Doherty at 22nd with a 106. Cecilia Dixon was 29th with a 116, followed by Danielle Burns at 30 with 117.

Burns, Mount Si’s competitive junior, led the pack until she was troubled by injury several weeks ago. She played in the league tournament one-handed, after working hard all season. Despite the injury, she finished with a score that put her in the second-team all-KingCo selection.

Doherty played well, missing the district cut by six strokes.

“For a freshman, that’s pretty good,” Proudfoot said. “She’s planning on playing all summer.”

The team, he said, is getting stronger with time. Expected to come on board next year is eighth grader Caitlin Maralack, who is already shooting in the 70s and 80s.

“She’s going to be huge next year,” Proudfoot said. He’s never had a player walk on with that potential, that young.

“Next year, we could potentially be very good.”
