Boys' Golf Qualifies for State Tournament; Girls Finish Season Fourth at Regionals
April 26, 2019
The DSHS boys' and girls' golf teams competed at the 5A Region IV Tournament at McAllen's Palm View Golf Course during the week of April 22. The boys' team finished in second place, which qualifies for a spot at the state tournament for the second year in a row. The girls' team finished in fourth place - one spot out of state-qualifying position.
The boys were led by senior Jake Sitterle, who finished third overall in Region IV with a one-under score over the two-day tournament. His two-day stroke total of 143 (73 and 70) tied him for second place, but he was defeated on the fourth hole of a sudden-death playoff by Zach Heffernan of Boerne Champion HS. Jun Min Lee of Mission Sharyland HS was the individual regional champion. DSHS sophomore Sam Sewell was the fifth overall finisher with a total of 151 (75 and 76). Tanner Wardlaw (25th overall), Jake Sewell (55th place), and Luke Ezell (59th place) completed the DSHS team. Among the state-qualifying teams, DSHS finished ahead of Alamo Heights HS and behind Boerne Champion HS. The state tournament is May 20-21 at Georgetown’s White Wing Golf Club. DSHS finished in ninth place at the 2018 UIL State Tournament.
The girls' team finished in fourth place at regionals, behind state-qualifying teams from Alamo Heights HS, Mission Sharyland HS, and Boerne Champion HS. DSHS was led by Paige Miller, who was the team's lowest scorer, placing 17th overall. The girls' team, which had four first-time varsity players, also included Lindsey Teague (23rd overall), Samantha Miethke (29th), Katherine Montgomery (35th), and Ava Cole (72nd). Both Teague and Cole recorded personal best scores at the regional tournament.
