Dakota Hull birdied three holes May 18 and 19 at Quail Valley Golf Course in Banks, and the Enterprise High School senior finished the state Class 3A-2A-1A championship in ninth place among 90 individuals. Hull made the state's Top 10 for the third consecutive year, and the Top 20 for the fourth time.
Midway through the tournament, Hull played especially well. He struggled in the beginning. Starting the course on the 10th hole, he scored a pair of double-bogies. He needed six strokes over par to complete the back nine. But Hull came back at his best. He birdied the third hole and the seventh. Another six, he scored par. And the following day, Hull remained strong. He parred his first three holes and birdied his eighth.
Hull highlighted Enterprise's team performance. Combined, the boys took 733 shots over the two days. They finished the first round in ninth place, just two strokes behind Cascade Christian High.
Enterprise senior Tyler Warner wound up ranked 31st. He opened the tournament with a birdie on his first hole. Like Hull, Warner was sharp on the front nine. He birdied two holes and parred six. The next round, he scored one-under-par on his first four holes.
The Enterprise team score also included Rasmus Hvidberg's 201 strokes and freshman Brock Hayes' 205. Junior Seth Jannuzzi and Esteban Davila shared another varsity spot and totaled a 208.
