Ross Wohlhueter of Auburn Riverside and Julie Heffernan of Auburn Mountainview both cracked the top 20 in their respective Class 3A state golf tournaments on Wednesday in Bellingham.

Wohlhueter used consistent play to help forge a three-way tie for 18th in competition at the Bellingham Golf & Country Club. He fired a 4-over-par 76 during Tuesday’s first round, then came back even better on Wednesday with a 3-over 75 for a two-day total of 151.

Wohlhueter was one of two Ravens to make the cut to the top 40 and ties after the first day. Dustin Hegge wound up in a three-way tie for 38th, shooting 76-84 for a 160.

No other Auburn-area golfers were in the finals.

Heffernan, playing at Shuksan Golf Course, earned a three-way share of 20th place. She shot a 93 on the first day to make the cut, then sliced seven shots off of that on the second day for an 86, giving her a two-round total of 179.

Heffernan was the only Auburn girl in the finals. Enumclaw, paced by Mara Koplitz’ tie for sixth, won the team championship.

In the 4A boys tournament, Jefferson’s Erik Jarvey tied for 20th. He was one of seven golfers to card a two-round total of 154 at Avalon in Bellingham, shooting a 78-76.

Courtney Tappon of Jefferson placed 29th in the girls tournament at Sudden Valley, shooting 92-88–180.
