Spartans finish fourth in Lubbock
Until the final hole of the Class 5A Region I championships, Centennial’s boys golf team battled for a state berth.
But in the end the Spartan came up short of qualifying for state. Centennial placed fourth shooting a two-day total of 627 to finish 19 strokes behind third-place Aledo. The top three teams at regional qualified for state. Granbury won the district title after shooting a 569 and Lubbock Cooper’s Black squad was second with a score of 587.
“I was proud of the way we competed and never gave up,” Centennial coach Matthew Dunn said. “They fought right to the end and never gave up. That is all you can ask. Things didn’t go our way on the back nine but I am so proud of this group of guys. They have worked really hard all year and it showed the last few tournaments.”
Moon plays at first regional
Centennial freshman Amy Moon played lights out through the front nine on Day One of the Class 5A Region I girls golf championships.
Making the turn April 22, Moon had shot a 37. But on the back nine, she had three bad holes to finish with a first-day 83 on Lubbock’s Rawls Golf Course.
Moon played better on the second day firing an 80 to finish with a two-day score of 143. The freshman finished 23rd overall at her first regional tournament.
“She kind of ran out of gas on the back nine on the second day,” Dunn said. “She was really tired on the last five holes and made some bogeys she normally wouldn’t have. I couldn’t be more proud of her she. She works really hard on her game and I have no doubt she will make it to state tournament the next three years.”
