Mount Si’s Warford holes 4A state golf title

Mount Si’s Drew Warford led the field after day one and finished off with a state title at the 4A golf tournament at Canyon Lakes Golf Course in Kennewick.

On May 22-23, he shot 70-67-137 to win. Colt Sherrell of Tahoma took second with 71-68-139.

“I was hitting solid the last few days,” said Warford, a sophomore, competing in his second state tourney. “I made a lot of clutch putts coming down the stretch.”

Warford played in the same group with his longtime friend Sherrell, and it was an itense, back-and-forth battle, the Wildcat said. The two golfers shot a combined 8-under (4-under each) on the back nine holes on day two.

“He wouldn’t go away,” Warford said with a laugh about Sherrell.

The pair have golfed together at the Meridian Valley Country Club in Kent, and Warford beat Sherrell in match play at last summer’s Pacific Northwest Golf Association tournament.

Spirits were high as the duo competed on the course.

“We were talking to each other and giving each other fist bumps,” when they made nice shots, said Warford, who finished 22nd at state last year.

He climbed the standings in a big way this year to notch the title.

On the girls’ side in Pasco, Mount Si’s Kat Hodgson took 23rd with a 79-78-157.
