Fredericksburg High School varsity boys’ golf had another successful state tournament to keep the dynasty rolling.

The Billie golfers placed second in the University Interscholastic League 4A golf state tournament last Monday and Tuesday at Onion Creek Club Golf Course to earn their fifth-straight top five team finish at state.

Individual state champion Cole Grona, Tyler Kaman, Hudson Ross, Langston James and Justin Penn shot a combined 619 in the two-day tournament to finish just seven strokes behind Argyle.

The team ended the first day of the tournament six strokes behind Argyle but overnight rain changed the course conditions and wind made it hard for high shots to carry, which prevented the Billies from gaining momentum the second day.

By Danny Hirt

Winning a state championship in any sport is a special moment. Just ask anyone privileged enough to have done it.

Then, repeating as the best has its own reward.

But what if you’re fortunate enough to win a state title all four years you’re in high school?

To find out how special that feeling is, just ask Heritage School seniors Christina Harpold and Sydney Richburg. After all, they accomplished that heady feat at the end of last month in the TAPPS 1A girls’ doubles tennis finals held in Waco.

Richburg said she was “really excited” by winning her fourth title with Harpold. That’s a given. But blended in with the euphoria, Richburg added, is a tinge of bittersweet when she realizes her high school racket-related career has to an end. “I’m sad it’s over,” she said.

Heritage sending 22 to state TAPPS 1A track meet

In all, 22 student/athletes from Heritage School — 16 boys and six girls — qualified for a trip to this weekend’s TAPPS state 1A track and field championship meet slated for Baylor University in Waco.

The advancements came as a result of the students’ performances at the South Regional meet held Saturday at Memorial Stadium in Bastrop.

“We were very fortunate at regionals,” said Heritage head coach Brad Sultemeier. “Our boys’ team took first place out of 15 teams and our girls took second.”

Sultemeier went on to say that he’s “excited” by his athletes’ performances in Bastrop. “We had a number of personal records at the regional meet, and we’ve got kids peaking at just the right time of year. We’re looking forward to see how well we can compete at the state level.”

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.
