mwochnick@theolympian.comOctober 22, 2013 

Hockinson’s Diego DeLaTorre shot a 1-under-par 70 to grab a two-shot lead at Day 1 of the 2A District IV boys golf championships at Riverside Golf Course in Chehalis. DeLaTorre shot a sizzling 3-under 32 on the back nine and has a two-shot-overall lead over Black Hills’ Jake Shier, who shot a 1-over 72 for the day.

Final-round action starts at 9 a.m. Wednesday, with the top 36 golfers, plus ties, advancing. The top 16 golfers after Wednesday advance to state in May.

Capital and Centralia had a pair of golfers in the top 10. Centralia’s Voetberg brothers -- Tucker and Deter -- shot a 76 and 77, respectively, while Capital’s Gabriel Barnes and Brent Chapin are tied for fifth with Black Hills’ Ryan Waldron with a 78. 

Capital’s Joel Christopher (82), Tumwater’s Heath Ohnemus (83) and River Ridge’s Jake Hovde (84) round out South Sound golfers in the top 20.
