The Austin High boys golf team finished third in the Region IV-5A golf championship, played at Briggs Ranch in San Antonio, and will advance to the state tournament. The Maroons posted 314-313=627 and their consistency got the job done. Salvador Chavar led the Maroon scoring with 77-74=151. Forest Miller was two shots behind him with 74-79=153.
Alamo Heights and Borne Champion finished first and second in the regional championship. The first three teams advance to the state tournament on May 22-23 at the Wolfdancer Golf Club in Bastrop, Texas.
The team is in a rebuilding mode led by their new coach Charles Looney. As can be seen in the team photo below, there is great participation on the team and it is sure to result in improved play in the future.
Austin High has produced many great players over the years including Randy and Cary Petri, Lester Lundell, Ben Crenshaw, William Cromwell and Billy Clagett. Perhaps current players can draw some inspiration from the wonderful golf legacy inherent in their school’s past.
