Josie Quantrell gets ready to tee off during the May 1 home match. Quantrell and Shelby Gilman competed Tuesday at sub districts.

Goldendale's golfers are all set for the South Central Athletic Conference Sub District match, which began for the girls on Tuesday at the Sage Hills Golf Course in Warden, and starts for the boys Thursday at noon at the Desert Aire Golf Course in Mattawa.

Both of Goldendale's girls, freshmen Josie Quantrell and Shelby Gilman, were in Warden on Tuesday for subs, but results weren't available by the time the papers were sent out.

Two days after the girls compete at sub districts, the boys will see who advances to districts.

The Wolves enter sub districts coming off their final match of the season at home on May 1 in which the boys team outshot Wahluke to win the match. La Salle also was in attendance, but had only two golfers, needing four to register a team score.

Goldendale's top four boys combined to shoot a 410 total last week, while Wahluke's four combined for 455.

Junior Luke Gerchak paced the Wolves again like he has all season, shooting one of his best rounds so far of the season. He recorded his first sub-80 round of the season on May 2 to finish the regular season strong with momentum heading into subs and districts. He likely won't need the momentum though, as he looks poised to reach the state tournament for the third time in as many years.

Along with Gerchak's 79, Logan Quantrell followed with a 98 over 18 holes at the Goldendale Golf Club, Jasper Randall shot a 112, and Riley Seaver rounded out Goldendale's top four with a 121. Dane O'Leary followed with a 124 with Andrew Ihrig rounding out Goldendale's boys with a 128.

The Goldendale girls didn't have enough to qualify as a team, but Quantrell finished with a 128 and Gilman shot a 141 in the regular-season ending match.
