Thomas Jefferson High School is the proud winner of two academic state championships, both firsts for their programs — boys golf and boys tennis.

The Raiders’ boys golf team won the title with a 3.84 cumulative grade-point average and, with no seniors on the team this year, the future looks very bright.

Individually, TJ boasts AJ Seo, a junior who will be competing at the state tournament for the third time over the Memorial Day Weeekend.

The golf team includes Kyle George, Ryan Hagan, David Jang, Juhwan Eugene Kim, Seo, Ean Van Bramer, Jacob Ward and Eugene Washington.

The boys tennis team finished with a cumulative GPA of 3.76, including eight perfect 4.0’s. The Raiders have four individuals competing in the state tournament — Alex Lee, Zach Martin, Cameron Martin and Alex Chan, which will run May 23-25 in Richland.

The tennis team includes Richard Ban, Chan, Hakeem Clark, Donavon Gomez, Tyler Hamashima, Lee, Cameron Martin, Zachary Martin, Abishek Murali, Alex Papke, Vivek Ramanujan and Michael Ziccarelli.
