In medalist individual competition, Danielle Johnson of Sulphur Springs had a 97 for 12th place.

The competition in the event concludes today.

The Sulphur Springs boys will play a practice round today at the course before competiting in action Wednesday and Thursday.

It is the first appearance for the boys in regional in several years according to SSHS boys golf coach Ross Funk.

“It’s hard to know how the course will play. It’s out in the middle of nowhere with lots of wind up on a hill,” Funk said.
