Fredericksburg High School’s varsity girls golf team won fifth in the University Interscholastic League (UIL) State 3A Golf Tournament following two days of play on Thursday and Friday, May 2-3, at the Jimmy Clay Golf Course in Austin.
Kristen Payne, Kaytlen James, Kaitlin Huizinga, Lorin Flores and Hailey O’Neill collectively turned in a 388 on a windy and cold first day of competition and a 396 on the second day for a two-day total of 784.
That score was 132 strokes behind state champion Andrews, who shot a 652 (337/315,) yet Fredericksburg’s score dominated the two other teams from Region IV — Cuero and Sealy.
Taking second through fourth places (in descending order) were teams from Snyder - 697 (339/358), Gatesville – 698 (343/355) and Melissa – 780 (397/383.)
Rounding out the top 10 teams at state behind Fredericksburg were: Caldwell, Atlanta, Sealy, Orangefield and Bridgeport.
