Savio Golf Begins District; Lady Eagles Team and Men's Medalists Advance
The Savio Eagles and Lady Eagles golf teams wrapped up district play last Tuesday, April 11, at Hidden Creek Golf Course in Burleson, TX. Both teams competed admirably, especially on the second day of the 36-hole event. In the end, the Lady Eagles finished 3rd in their division and their core of top-5 golfers will advance to the regional tournament on Monday, April 24, at Fossil Creek Golf Club in Fort Worth. Senior Connor Neill earned an 11th-place finish among medalists with her solid play.
For the Eagles, though, the golf season was a heartbreaking replica of last year's, as they finished a single shot outside of regional qualifying in taking 5th place. The men bounced back from a less-than stellar opening round with all 5 golfers playing gutsy rounds on Tuesday to get them back in the hunt. While the Eagles do not advance as a team, Sophomores Brandon Brown and Z-Je Marcella will play as medalists at Fossil Creek, as they earned 11th- and 13th-place medalist honors, respectively.
