Brian Mogg, a Sammamish resident who attends Skyline High School, finished second in the boys 14-15 division at the Washington Junior Golf Association state tournament last week in Walla Walla.
Mogg finished the tournament July 29 with a 216 total and finished three strokes behind first-place winner Frank Garber, of Kirkland.

In the boys 16-17 division, Li Wang, of Sammamish and Eastlake, was third at 213. He was just three strokes behind winner Tyler Salsbury, of Enumclaw.
In the girls 12-13 division, Ashley Fitzgibbons, of Sammamish, finished second at 241. She was just one stroke behind first-place Sarah Lawrence, of Duvall.
