The Wildcats’ golf team finished third at a tournament at Hideaway Lake Golf Course in Lindale Monday (March 19). Teams from Hallsville finished first and second.
Wildcats Golf Coach Chris Owens says his team shot a 336. He says Andrew Escobar led the Wildcats with an 79. Carter Lewis shot 81. Colton Bench shot 84. Cameron Morris had 92. Kip Childress shot 99. Coach Owens says it was a little windy Monday but he says for the most part the weather was pretty good. He says he hopes his team can improve by about 20 strokes before the district golf tournament on April 5-6.
Based on the Wildcats performance at a district preview at Rockwall Golf and Athletic Club before spring break, Coach Owens says he expects to district race to come down to Hallsville, Texas High and the Wildcats battling for the two spots to qualify for the regional tournament.
The Wildcats play next at The Cascades Golf Club at Tyler next Monday in a tournament sponsored by All Saints Episcopal School.
