Chambers Bay caddies win full scholarships

Two South Sound high school seniors are among eight winners statewide of the Chick Evans Caddie Scholarship, a full tuition college scholarship for the 2009-10 academic year.

The winners are Auburn Riverside High senior Skyler Cichy of Lake Tapps and Covenant High senior Jonathan Youell of University Place. Both were sponsored by the Chambers Bay Golf Course and plan to attend the University of Washington, according to a news release.

Evans Scholars are golf caddies who were selected based on their strong caddie record, academic excellence, financial need and outstanding character. The scholarship is renewable for up to four years.

The Western Golf Association, headquartered in Golf, Ill., has administered the scholarship through the Evans Scholars Foundation since 1930.
