Region-bound to Corpus Christi on Monday and Tuesday, April 14-15, are both the Fredericksburg High School (FHS) girls’ and boys’ golf squads.

The Billie girls clinched the two-day title in the University Interscholastic League (UIL) District 27-3A Golf Tournament, while the FHS boys took second place.

“We are peaking at just the right time,” said FHS Coach Janie Guynes, yesterday, after her squad’s finish on the “home” links at Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Golf Course.

First day rounds in the loop tourney were played at the Buckhorn Golf Course in Comfort, but a scheduling conflict at Bandera’s Flying L Golf Course forced second-day rounds to move to Fredericksburg’s city greens.

UIL Region IV-3A rounds will be played Monday and Tuesday in the Corpus Christi Area. Tee times are set for 9 a.m., daily.

Fredericksburg’s boys will play at the Gabe Lozano Sr. Golf Course, while the girls will simultaneously appear at the Oso Beach Golf Course.

FHS Girls’ Golf

Winning district for the fourth year in a row, were the FHS girls, who posted a 343 the first day (*a team best) and a 374 the second for a two-day total of 717.

That effort bested five teams, including two from Wimberley that slipped into the second- and third-place slots. The Wimberley Navy team finished second with a tally of 823, while the Wimberley Red team won third with an 866.
