Boys Golf Update - District Tournament
May 8, 2014Hallsville High School
Ok...this is the last update. Until next Tuesday that is because for the 2nd time in the last 3 years, we've had a golfer qualify and advance to the State Sectional golf tournament next week as Lee March qualified with an individual score of 98, which tied him for 17th place! Lee will be competing at Eagle Knoll Golf Course near Ashland next Monday May 12th with a chance to advance to the Class 2 State Golf Tournament
Yesterday (May 5) we traveled to Innsbrook Golf Resort near Wright City for the Class 2 District 3 Golf Tournament. As a team, we took 8th out of 11 teams shooting a team score of 507. It proved to be a tough day for golfers from most of the schools including our own.
Overall, I'm really proud of the kids. We asked 3 golfers to compete at the varsity level for the first time and for about 1/2 of the team, this was their first golf experience of any kind. So we were young and inexperienced, but these kids did a great job of working hard during the season and focusing on getting better throughout.
Sorry for all the updates at once...it's been a crazy spring for me and my family, but wanted to make sure the golfers got the recognition they deserve for the time, effort, and success they had this season.
Have to send a Thank You to the high school teachers for putting up with and helping us with all the missed days, early outs, and just general craziness we throw at their schedule every spring.
Thank you for all the support and encouragement you showed the golfers throughout the spring!
