Rain Delayed Start of Regional Golf Tourney for Wildcats

Heavy rain delayed things at the Regional Golf Tournament where the Wildcats are playing. Shortly after 10 a.m. Wednesday morning, Wildcats Athletic Director Greg Owens reported that the start of the tournament at the Rockwall Golf and Athletic Club had been delayed until 12:50 p.m. This is the first day of the two-day tournament.

The Wildcats enter the regional tournament after finishing second at the district meet by just one stroke. The Wildcats shot 302 and 312 at the district tournament back on April 3-4 at the same Rockwall course. The Wildcats were led by Alex Motes, who shot a 74 and 75 for a 149 total, good for a second place finish in the district tournament. Matt Calhoun had a 74 and a 77 for a 151 total that put him in third place for the district tournament. Motes and Calhoun were selected to the All-Tournament First Team. Caleb Lewis shot a 75 and an 80 for 155 total. Andrew Escobar fired a 79 and an 83 for 162 total. Carter Lewis rallied for a second round 80 to go with an 87 on the first day for 167 total.

The Wildcats’ golf team is likely to be playing late into the day Wednesday to try and finish their first round. The tournament wraps up Thursday.
