Pasco's Daniel Haug (70), West Richland's Jeffrey Marcum (74) and Kennewick's Jon Wilson (75) all qualified for the Washington Junior Golf Association district championship Thursday in the District 4 subdistrict tournament held at Sun Willows.
Haug shot a 70 in the ages 16-17 division to feed into a three-way tie for second place with Richland's Hunter Thompson Thompson and Walla Walla's Ryan Baumgart, both of whom qualified for the district tournament at the first subdistrict held June 14 at Desert Aire.
On the girls' side, Walla Walla's Jessica Huntsman qualified for the age 16-17 district championship with a sixth-place 84, joining Richland's Taylor Kain-Godoy (2nd, 73), Katie Stephens (4th, 80) and Brianna Hadler (5th, 82) as well as Pasco's Kelsey Aiello (3rd, 76) -- each of whom qualified at the first subdistrict meet.

Miracle signs with CWU: Catcher Jessi Miracle, who helped Kamiakin win its first state softball title last month, signed a letter of intent to play at Central Washington University. Miracle originally planned to attend Washington State, which does not have a softball program, but CWU scouts took note of her play at the Class 3A state tournament in Lacey, and a scholarship was arranged.
