Kingman High's Austin Sammeli notched his third state qualifying score after shooting a 37 Thursday at Cerbat Cliffs Golf Course. The Bulldogs finished third behind Lake Havasu High and Bradshaw Mountain.
Sammeli started on hole No. 6 and proceeded to birdie the seventh, first and third holes while double-bogeying No. 8.
"Not a lot of pars on the scorecard, but overall close to a par score," said KHS coach Guy Hartnett of Sammeli.
Sammeli needs just two more scores of 1-over par to qualify for the tournament at the end of October - with one of those scores coming on an away course.
Josh Schanaman had the second-best score for the Bulldogs, shooting a 47, while Jake Lawson and Gage Humphreys each had a 51. Collin Stratton shot a 52, but his score was dropped from KHS's 186 team score.
Lake Havasu won the match with a 151, followed by Bradshaw Mountain with a 179.
KHS faces a light week, with its only competition on Tuesday when the Bulldogs travel to Prescott for a match with Bradshaw Mountain, Prescott and Cottonwood Mingus.
