The first shot at making the state tournament came Monday and Wednesday at 8 a.m. for the boys’ golf team as they teed off at Sherrill Park for the start of the District 13-5A tournament.

On Monday, the team ended in fourth place leaving one day to secure a spot at regionals. Needing a second place finish to advance, the boys’ golf team fell short on Wednesday, claiming a fifth place spot. However, senior Cole Enloe will advance, individually representing the team.

Due to STAAR testing on Tuesday, the tournament was forced to embark on an unusual schedule with a full day of rest and preparation in between the two days of play.

“It can be a good thing and a bad thing because if you play well the first day than you can lose a lot of momentum,” junior Vince Matrone said. “But if you don’t play as good the first day, the second day is like a new start.”
