It’s back to state for the girls’ golf team as the Redhawks finished in 3rd place at the UIL 5A Region II golf tournament in Rockwall.

“During the competition we were just trying to minimize mistakes and trying to just be really focused and not get distracted because those are really long two days,” senior Lizzy Stone said.  “We’re really excited and there’s not too much pressure now that we’ve made it to state, so we’re just gonna go and try to play our best and try to like PR as a team.”

Senior Raeleigh Davidson is no stranger to going to state, as she has consistently attended throughout her high school career. 

“It’s super exciting going this year,” she said. “We went my freshman year, and then I went alone sophomore year and then last year everything was cancelled. So I think it’s super cool I get to go back again with the team one last time before I leave for college.”

For senior Maya Jain, now that regionals are over, she just plans on giving it her all. 

“I love being around the girls so much and we always have so much fun together, so I’m glad we get to have the most time possible,” Jain said. “Our goal for regionals was just to get out and make it to state, and now that we’re there, we just want to play the best golf possible and place as high as we can.”

As the girls’ Redhawk golf prepares for their opponents at the state competition, Davidson believes consistency will give them a shot at placing. 

“I definitely want to at least place in the top 10 individually, and I think it’d be cool for the team to place,” she said. “We just all have to get more consistent.”
