Both Jourdanton golf teams are headed to the regional tournament.

Jourdanton won the boy’s team title and finished second in the girl’s bracket of the District 27- 3A tournament at Pleasanton Country Club on Wednesday, April 7.

The Indians shot a total score of 386 to win the team title by 20 strokes over Lytle. The Squaws missed the championship by 12 strokes with a score of 475, losing to Dilley.

Setting the pace for the team championship for the Indians were a pair of sub- 95 scores. Senior Colton Schuchart won the individual title with a score of 91. Joseph Brown finished second with a score of 92, which tied Lytle’s Khye Stewart.

Kyle Palmer shot 100 during the one-day tournament. Ty Smoot finished with a 103 on his scorecard while Colby Moy rounded up the championship team with a 113.

That five-man team will represent Jourdanton at the Region IV-3A tournament at Scott Schreiner Golf Course in Kerrville April 21-22.

The Indians are also sending a sixth representative in Will Akers, who shot 95 to finish as an individual regional qualifier.

 

 

The Squaws were paced by Jenny Vrana, who shot a 115 on Wednesday. Charlotte Staley was one stroke behind Vrana with a final of 116. Madison Yow and Kylie Bosquez each shot 122 to help Jourdanton to the second place finish. Claire Vyvlecka turned in a 123 to round out the Squaws’ day.

The Squaws will compete at Schreiner Golf Course April 19-20.

The Poteet Aggies finished third in the boy’s tournament and missed automatically qualifying for regionals by 14 strokes, shooting a team total of 420. Marcos Natal was the low scorer for the Aggies with a score of 101. Cutter Blagg shot 103 and Julian Moya shot 104. Jayden Miller turned in a 112 while Ethan Acevedo finished with a 118 for the day.

Since the Aggies finished third, they are the first alternate to represent the district should one of the top two teams not compete at regionals.
