Kent Hagen, a golf standout at Kentwood High School, and Lauren Sewell, who stars for Kentridge, won their respective 16-17 age divisions of last week’s Washington Junior Golf Association District 6 sub-district tournament at Auburn Golf Course.

Catherina Li continued to dominate the girls 12-13 age division. Last week at Auburn, Li carded a 1-over-par 73 to beat Burien’s Claire Grotz by 26 shots. At Allenmore on June 26, Li had a 76 to win by 16 shots over Kendall Gray of Federal Way.

Hagen carded a 2-under-par 69 to edge Kent’s Sean McMullen and Auburn’s Keenan Darrow by two shots on the boys side. Hagen was coming off a second-place finish in the sub-district tournament at Foster on July 3, and tied for third in the tournament at Allenmore on June 26. Both of those were won by Darrow.

Sewell shot a 1-over-par 73 to edge Tukwila’s Mallory Kent by one shot. The victory was Sewell’s second straight, as she and Kent have battled through each of the first three sub-district tourneys. Sewell won by five shots, 71-76, at Foster on July 3, after Kent scored a three-shot win, 74-77, on June 26 at Allenmore.

Hagen, Sewell and McMullen all have qualified for district, which is scheduled for July 21-22 at Classic Golf Club in Spanaway.

No other Covington- or Kent-area girls had made the district list heading into Monday’s final sub-district tournament at Lipoma Firs (results unavailable).

Li, the 12-year-old sister of Kentwood High star Rui Li, also has earned a spot at district.

Joining Hagen and McMullen as district qualifiers from Covington and Kent on the boys side are Danny Peterson, Brent Brown and Riley Kuranishi (all 16-17 age group), Tom Zavada (14-15; he placed second in that age group in the sub-district at Foster and tied for second last week at Auburn), Alex Carroll (14-15), and Peter Koo (12-13).

Maple Valley’s 17-year-old Danny Swinford tied for fourth place last week in the Auburn sub-district with a 1-over 72 to earn his spot at district in the 16-17 age group. Alex Taylor of Maple Valley, 16, qualified in that same group by shooting a 78 and tying for eighth.

Other Maple Valley qualifiers so far include Colby Everard (14-15 boys), Steven Sveda (12-13 boys), RJ Tallud (12-13 boys), Jordan Armstrong (8-11 boys), and Amanda Fairweather (14-15 girls).

Black Diamond’s 16-year-old CJ Munko, who tied for fifth in sub-district play at Allenmore on June 26, also has earned a district bid.
