HASLET – Playing in a non-district tournament in between the two rounds of the 36-hole District 6-3A tournament, the Mineral wells Rams shot their lowest score of the year after tallying an overall total of 330 to place third Monday at Willow Springs Golf Course.
The final round of the girls and boys District 6-3A golf tournament will be Monday, April 8, at Glen Garden Country Club in Fort Worth.
“With the last round of the district tournament coming up it was good to se the boys shoot low,” MWHS golf coach Tommy Fincher said.
The Rams were led by a 77 by Reece Tarver. Tarver is also currently in second place in the race for top medalist at the boys’ district tournament after one round.
Rylie Hill had the second-lowest Rams’ score with an 81, with Josh Hardee and Conner Bradhsaw each finishing with identical 86s.
Nick Wendt was right behind as he finished with an 87.
The Rams hope to carry momentum gained at Willow Springs into the last leg of the 6-3A tournament. The Rams are 11 strokes behind first-place Kennedale.
“The boys have been playing much better recently,” Fincher said. “If they continue to play like this they can make up 11 strokes.”
The Lady Rams also played at the Willow Springs tournament, but did not play as a full team due to an injury to Paige Crowley.
Lady Rams sophomore Scarlett Eaton shot her lowest round of the season with an 82. But Eaton was not the only Lady Ram to go low as Tara Cooper shot a season-best 95.
Also, Whitney Ratto was in step with her teammates as she shot her season best, a 102.
After 18 holes of the girls’ District 6-3A tournament, Eaton is in first place in the race for overall top medalist when she shot a 105.
Cooper is in second place overall after she finished her opening round with a 116.
The Lady Rams shot a 491 in the first round and lead the district tournament by 38 strokes over second-place Kennedale (529) and by 42 strokes over third-place Springtown (533).
The Rams shot 384 in the first round of the boys’ 6-3A tournament and lead third-place Springtown by 33 strokes. Castleberry is in fourth place after one round after posting a 445.
The top two teams from the district tournament advance to the regional tournament.
“Both teams will be ready for the second round on Monday,” Fincher said. “We had three girls shoot their season best scores, and that is what you need to do this time of the year.
“I am hoping that carries over to Monday. The boys just need to maintain their current pace. Both teams are in good shape to advance to the regional tournament.
