The Eagle High boys shot 4-under-par 284 to tie a school record and win the 5A District Three championship Monday at TimberStone Golf Course in Caldwell.

Freshman Josh Gliege (70), sophomore Graysen Huff (71), junior Chris Carew (71) and junior Aden Cowley (72) shot par or better.

Eagle won the title for the seventh time in eight years.

"The kids played well," coach Jeff Dunn said. "They go out and grind and do what they have to each and every time. You have to give them a high-five when they can go out and perform like that."

Senior Mark Brassey of Timberline won his first individual district championship with a 3-under 69. He made about a 16-foot birdie putt on No. 17 to separate himself.

Three players shot 70.

"It really gives me a lot of confidence going into state," Brassey said. "I was looking for a good way to end my season. Me being a senior, I wanted to end it strong. I shot 64 two weeks ago (at TimberStone). I wanted to break 70 again."

Boise (294), Timberline (295) and Capital (302) also qualified for 5A state, which is next Monday and Tuesday at Lewiston Country Club. Individuals who shot 75 or better on non-qualifying teams also advanced.

The 5A girls tournament is Wednesday at SpurWing.

4A: MIDDLETON BOYS, BK GIRLS WIN TITLES

Middleton's Braxton Miller emerged victorious from a three-hole playoff to win the district championship and help the Vikings win their third team title in four seasons. Miller, Columbia's Greg Law and Emmett's Tristen Bessey each shot 75s at Purple Sage in Caldwell. In the girls tournament, Bishop Kelly junior Haley Nist earned medalist honors for the second straight season, leading the Knights to the team title.

2A: NAMPA CHRISTIAN BOYS, MCCALL GIRLS WIN

The Trojans won the District Three championship for the eighth consecutive season, while McCall-Donnelly denied the Nampa Christian girls their eighth straight at Centennial in Nampa. Individual honors went to Melba's Caden Cook (74) and New Plymouth's Lacy Avera (90).
