Mariam Tran Qualifies for State Golf Tourney, Kip Childress Begins Play at Regional Wednesday

Lady Cats’ golfer Mariam Tran will be heading to the State Golf Tournament. Tran qualified for the State Tourney by shooting rounds of 77 and 80 at the two-day Region II Golf Tournament at Rockwall Golf and Athletic Club Monday and Tuesday (April 19-20).

Tran ended tied for 6th place with her 157 total. The State Tournament will be held May 10-11 at White Wing Golf Club in Georgetown.

Making the State Tournament has been a goal for Tran since she has been in high school. Her Lady Cats Golf Coach Whitney Spigener predicted Tran would make it to state several years ago. Coach Spigener also qualified for the State Tournament when she was a Lady Cats’ golfer.

Meanwhile the Boys Region II Golf Tournament got underway Wednesday at Rockwall Golf and Athletic Club. Wildcats’ golfer Kip Childress is in the field.

Childress qualified for the Regional Tournament by finishing 3rd at the District Tournament at Tempest Golf Club in Gladewater back on March 29-30. At district, Childress shot 71 and 75 for a total of 146.

At the Regional Golf Tournament, top teams and individuals can qualify for the State Tournament at White Wing Golf Course May 17-18.
