“It was awesome,” Redmond coach Tom Bunnell said of the finish. “It was just really cool. The girls were tired, hot, nervous — everything. It was quite the finish.”

Redmond’s golfers who competed on the second day all parred the tough par-3 17th hole and then the Mustangs finished 1-over on the 18th.

On day two, the top four teams were paired together, and White and McCannon finished strong to help give the Mustangs the win.

“It was super intense,” Bunnell said. “We came through and everyone rallied.”

On the boys’ side for Redmond, Akshay Anand shot 75-75-150 and Ryan Ho shot 76-74-150 to lead the Mustangs at The Creek at Qualchan Golf Course in Spokane. The Mustangs and two others tied for 13th. Redmond placed sixth in the team standings.

Completing Redmond’s roster were Trent Colombe, Arnav Mittal and Alex Marshall.

In 1A state boys action at the Olympic Country and Golf Club, Bear Creek’s Jon Campbell shot an 84-81-165 to finish 13th and lead the Grizzlies. Bear Creek took fifth in the final standings.

In girls 1B/2B/1A action, Overlake’s Ivy Haight finished tied for seventh at 76-82-158 with Deana Caruso of Pomeroy with an 82-76-158 at the Tumwater Valley Golf Course.
