Redmond High girls top the league, district tournament standings

Anand finishes first, headed to state with teammates.

Redmond High’s Adithi Anand and her team won the 4A KingCo girls golf medalist tournament and finished first overall in the two-day league/district event on April 29 and May 1 at Snohomish Golf Course.

Anand shot a two-day total of 71-73-144 and qualifies for state along with her teammates. Other Redmond participants at this week’s tournaments were Cynthia Lu, Jordan McCannon, Anna Jonson, Maddie White and Anna Galipeau.

Redmond won the KingCo tournament with 339 points on day one, followed by Issaquah with 343 and Mount Si with 346; the second- and third-placers are also state qualifiers. The Mustangs also topped the two-day standings.

In the top three of the overall individual standings, Mount Si’s Kasey Maralack finished with 76-79-155 and Skyline’s Wenna Zhang ended with 78-77-155. Anand, Maralack and Zhang finished first through third at the medalist tournament with their first-day scores.

“What an amazing group of girls. A true team effort,” said RHS coach Tom Bunnell. “This was such a cool culmination of an amazing regular season. These girls epitomized how to bring the team concept to an individual sport. I am so proud of this group and their teammates that contributed throughout the regular season. It has been an honor to coach them.”

Anand medaled in every event this season and averaged 5.4 league points per match in which the maximum is 5, according to Bunnell. She notched 10 points each day at the league/district event. Anand and Lu earned first-team all-KingCo honors and McCannon was named an honorable mention.

State will take place May 21-22 in Spokane and Redmond’s boys team — which features Anand’s brother Akshay — also qualified for the tournament in the fall.

Redmond’s boys won the 4A KingCo tournament and the team also features Ryan Ho, Alex Marshall, Arnav Mittal, Trent Colombe and Conner Hansford.
