On May 21st and 22nd, Washington 2A Golf State Championship took place at The Classic Golf Club in Spanaway where Steilacoom Sentinel Cherokee Kim fought to win the state title for the second year in a row. The win didn’t come easy, Kim’s main competitor was none other than school rival Fife’s Kendall Gray, who beat Kim at districts the week before. Though the girls played an extremely close game, Kim didn’t let the tension get to her, “I wasn’t stressing about what Gray was doing. I started thinking about what I needed to do with my swing.” Kim’s strategic game and confidence led her to winning first in state for the second time!
“There are no words to describe what it felt like after making my winning putt,” said Kim. “I am very blessed to have the chance to play golf and I’ve met some amazing people. It was because of the support I had from my family, friends, and SHS that I was able to bring home that W!”
Cherokee Kim will be continuing playing golf next fall at Washington State University in Pullman. Congratulations Cherokee Kim on your immense achievements and displaying that it’s great to be a sentinel!
