Grona aces a golden drive


State champion Cole Grona tees up in the UIL 4A state golf tournament at Onion Creek Club Golf Course in Austin. Grona shot a 70 on Monday and a 77 on Tuesday for a tournament-low 147 to take FHS’ first boys’ individual golf championship. — Standard-Radio Post/Danny Hirt

Cole Grona couldn’t believe it at first.

He didn’t think he played great on Tuesday — shooting a round of 77 filled with bogeys and double bogeys — but when the scores came in, he was on top.

He was a state champion.

Grona, a senior on Fredericksburg High School’s varsity golf team, won the 4A University Interscholastic League individual state championship at Onion Creek Club Golf Course in Austin to guide FHS to a second-place team finish on Tuesday.
