YANTIS — The District 13-4A golf race had many twists and turns, but when it all shook out it was Sulphur Springs taking first and second places in the two divisions.
The Sulphur Springs girls took first by 16 strokes while the Wildcats lost to rival Texas High by one stroke.
“We had the lead, then Texas High came back and beat us by one stroke,” lamented Sulphur Springs head boys coach Ross Funk.
The Texas High team total of 324 from the second day beat the Wildcats at 325 by a lone stroke.
“One stroke over 36 holes, I guess that is not too bad. This team was predicted to contend for the title,” Funk added. “We’re very young, we have no seniors.”
Sulphur Springs individual scores include: Cameron Wilks, 70-78-148 (third place overall); Adam Perry, 78-82-160; Kason Childress, 83-79-162; Chance Byrd, 81-89-170; Cort Walker, 80-85-175.
While the Wildcats were having a wild fight of it. The Sulphur Springs girls won the title in convincing fashion with very little drama.
The Sulphur Springs girls had rounds of 353-365-718 to take first in their division, zipping by Hallsville (367-367-734) in second place by 16 strokes.
Individual scores reveal that Kirstie Wallace was second place overall behind Meagan Howell of Hallsville. Howell had 169 total. Wallace had rounds of 82-89 for 171 total. Other SS girls individual scores include: Miranda Conway, 91-91-182; Kaitlyn Potts, 89-93-182; Britney Cheatham, 91-92-183; Kalee Perry, 103-97-200.
Also earning a trip to regional is SS medalist Danielle Johnson with scores of 98-85-193.
SS girls coach Steve Carter said he was impressed with his team’s play and pleased to bring the district title back to Sulphur Springs.
“The scores changed because of the brutal conditions, our score was 12 shots higher, but the course was more difficult,” Carter said. “Our girls are capable of shooting lower scores. We just need some good weather. We have had some really tough weather this golf season.”
Carter continued, “We know we have big shoes to fill. Sulphur Springs in years past has a strong tradition in girls golf, they have been to state several times. We just want to continue that. We’d love to make it to Austin, but we know regional will be tough.”
“Wallace got second place medalist, she played well,” Carter said. “She is not even 100-pounds, but she can drive the ball. Potts is doing the best job putting. Cheatham is playing well tee to green. All the girls did well considering the conditions.”
