The Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference Class A and Class B golf state qualifiers took place on rain-soaked Natanis Golf Course Tuesday, with a handful of local teams and student-athletes looking to earn the right to play at the state level in the coming weeks.

And, despite the horrible weather conditions, the Midcoast had a banner day and will be well represented at the upcoming individual state championships.

While no Midcoast squads qualified for the state team championships, which will be Monday, Oct. 10 at Natanis, eight student-athletes from squads based in Knox, Waldo and part of Lincoln counties turned in superb individual performances and will move on to the Maine Principals’ Association individual championships, to be played Saturday, Oct. 15 at the same venue.

Conditions Tuesday were far from ideal for a day on the golf course, with Class A golfers playing the Tomahawk Course and Class B golfers playing the Arrowhead Course. The rain was steady throughout the day and there were puddles on many of the greens, according to Mount View coach Craig Tozier.

All golfers played 18 holes.

Oceanside’s Reilly Flanagan (86) qualified for the individual state championships in Class A, while Belfast’s Jamie Jackson (81) and Tim Sticht (80); Camden Hills’ Daulton Wickenden (84) and John Vannorsdall (84); Medomak Valley’s Adam Lynch (82) and Alex Greenrose (83); and Mount View’s Erik Larrabee (78) also qualified for the individual state schoolboy championships in Class B.

Mariner Bethany Schulberg also shot 138 for 18 holes, but was unable to qualify for the individual schoolgirl championships.

Larrabee, who played for the winless Mustangs this season, shot a 78 (the cut for state qualifying was 84) and tied for medalist honor with Maine Central Institute’s Gavin Dugas in Class B. Nokomis’ Ethan Pearl shot 72 (cut of 88) and earned medalist honors for Class A.

The Mariners shot a four-golfer, 18-hole score of 370 and did not qualify for the state Class A team championships, while Bangor (335), Hampden Academy (349), Brunswick (352), Oxford Hills of South Paris (355), Brewer (360) and Lawrence of Fairfield (364) each qualified for the team championships.

The individual scores for the Mariners were: Flanagan, 86; Jordan Carter, 89; Zeke Hamlin, 97; Parker Spear, 98; Zach Bernard, 114; and James Tobin, 116. Flanagan is a sophomore and qualified for the state Class B individual championships last year for Rockland, shooting an 83 and finishing 10th.

In Class B, Medomak Valley (349), Camden Hills (350), Belfast (376) and Mount View (479) all fell short of qualifying for the team championships, with Lincoln Academy of Newcastle (335), Maranacook of Readfield (344), Winslow (346) and Maine Central Institute of Pittsfield (347) each qualifying for the team championships.

The individual scores for the Panthers were: Lynch, 82; Alex Greenrose, 83; Zach Judkins, 87; John Wilcox, 97; Ryan Merrifield, 99; and Isaac Greenrose, 100. Alex Greenrose and Lynch are seniors and did not qualify for the state individual championships last season.

The individual results for the Windjammers were: Wickenden, 84; Vannorsdall, 84; James Zanca, 89; Drew Long, 94; and Miles Ingraham, 93. Vannorsdall is a senior and qualified for the state individual championships last season, shooting an 85. Wickenden is a freshman and will be competing for the first time.

The individual results for the Lions were: Sticht, 80; Jackson, 81; Tyler McDevitt, 94; Jack Smith, 121; Logan Mitchell, 123; Grant Starrett, 129. Jackson is a senior and has proven to be one of the best golfers in Class B the past few seasons. As a junior last year, Jackson shot 82 and finished fourth at the state Class B individual championships and finished second in the same event as a sophomore.

Lion Allie Njaa also shot 111, but failed to qualify for the individual schoolgirl championships.

The individual results for the Mustangs were: Larrabee, 78; Owen Freeman, 119; Zach Holman, 120; Joel Poulin, 122; Dan Muther, 123; and Montana Maynard, 133. Larrabee is a sophomore and qualified for the state individual championships last season, shooting a 93.
