Sam Warkentin of Bainbridge Island became the first three-time overall champion in the 40 year history of the WJGA State Championship. Being held at the historic Bellingham G&CC, he sat on the tee of the par-3, 192 yard 18th hole in a tie with Joe Highsmith of Lakewood. Warkentin hit his tee shot within one-inch for a tap-in birdie and one stroke victory. His three day total of 6-under par 210 gave him his third consecutive boys overall title.
On the girls side, Brittany Kwon of Bremerton secured her victory with a final round 1-over par 74. Her three day total of 1-under par 217 gave her a 3-shot victory over Georgetown University commit Ashley Fitzgibbons of Sammamish.
