D-II Boys Golf: OMNI Tucson National Sonoran Day 1

Carlos Astiazaran (Andy Morales/AllSportsTucson)

We have a tie for the top spot at the AIA Division II state championships taking place at the OMNI Tucson national Sonoran Course. Cade Anderson of Notre Dame Prep, Ethan Klose of Arcadia and Jacob Tarkany of Cactus Shadows ended the first day with identical 3-under par rounds of 67.

The pack is also tight after that with Salpointe’s Carlos Astiazaran, Arcadia’s Gavin Aurilia and Seton Catholic’s Nik Kittilson all shooting 2-under (68). Rylan Johnson of Williams Field is next with a 1-under 69. In all, there are ten golfers with even or better scores after day one including Canyon del Oro standout Beckett Carlson (70).

Aurilia picked up the state championship last year after he shot a 6-under 140 on the Catalina Course.

In team competition, Cactus Shadows leads Arcadia 282 to 287 and Williams Field is third with 291. Salpointe is in sixth place.
