Baylor Cantrell, Contributor

Coming off the first region championship in 18 years, the boys’ golf team looked to repeat in a new format at the area tournament. With only two returning starters, the Mustangs looked for the young talent to contribute to their cause.

Garrett Collier and Trevor Pfiester stepped up early for the Mustangs, playing well in early matches. Seniors Jay Kim, Cole Shendl, and Ian Cupello contributed early to the cause as well. As area approached, the Mustangs looked poised to contend for the title. With a score of 323, the Mustangs received scores of 79 from both Brenden Hughes and Jackson Collier, while Garrett Collier posted an 81, and Baylor Cantrell finished at 84. This performance solidified a third place finish and a state qualification for the Mustangs.

With the State tournament being held May 22nd and 23rd at Chateau Elan, Coach Walker says the team is “looking forward to be able to compete against the best teams in the state.”
