Kimmel advanced to the U.S. Junior Amateur from July 15-20 at Inverness Club in Toledo, Ohio.
Kimmel, the Greater Spokane League’s player of the year as a sophomore, birdied the last three holes to earn medalist honors by one shot over Davenport’s Kristof Panke.
G-Prep’s Nate Plaster and Moscow’s Bryden Brown tied for seventh.
