The girls’ golf team takes on the rest of Texas in the UIL 5A state golf tournament Monday and Tuesday at 8:00 a.m. in Georgetown at the White Wing Golf Club, with the Redhawks making their first appearance at state since 2018. 

Senior Maya Jain feels the team’s ticket to state brought about a feeling of ease as the group had a tough run at the District 9-5A tournament.

“Honestly, I think for us it was more of a relief because I think for districts it was more stressful for us because we were waiting on that last card off,” Jain said.

Making it out of district led senior Raleigh Davidson to believe the team would be playing at state.

“Our district is competitive and our region isn’t as competitive so usually whatever two teams get out of our district, get out of our region,” Davidson said. “We kind of assumed we would make state but when it happened we were just like oh yeah.”

No matter how they got there, the team is proud of how far they have come together and hopes to see all of the work they put in pay off.

“Just knowing that we made it by a couple of extra strokes, made us content with what we did and just excited to go to state again and spend more time with each other,” Jain said.
