DeGarso earns spot in regional for Greenville Lions

FAIRVIEW, Texas —   Greenville sophomore Jonathon DeGarso overcame strong winds and a challenging layout to claim a spot in the Region II-4A golf tournament.

  Battling wind gusts up to 41 mph, DeGarso kept the ball low most of the day on Tuesday to shoot an 84 at the Heritage Ranch Golf Course. That round gave him a 165 total for 36 holes, good for second place in the District 13-4A tournament. DeGarso will advance to the regional tournament on Monday and Tuesday at The Links at Waterchase course in Fort Worth.

  “Today was a little bit easier, condition-wise,” DeGarso said, comparing Tuesday to Monday, when he shot an 81. “But it was definitely tough both days.”

  DeGarso finished second to McKinney North Orange golfer Zach Anderson, who carded the low round of the tournament, a 78 on Tuesday to finish at 161. Brice DeLong of Sherman was third with a 166 total.

  The Greenville Lions finished third in the team standings, missing a regional qualifying berth by only two strokes. The fired rounds of 350 and 363 for a 713 total.

  McKinney North Orange won the team championship (338-333-699) and Denison was second (348-363-711).

  William Strickland was Greenville’s second-low shooter with a 175 total, followed by David Weaks at 179, Ryan Litchfield with a 194 and Cody LaBove with a 220. Greenville’s Jakob Ross, shooting as a medalist, finished with a 198.

  Zach Huddin led the Royse City golfers with a 174 as the Bulldogs finished sixth with a 729 total.

McKinney North Orange also won the girls team title with a 766 total that included rounds of 373 and 391. Wylie East was second at 813. Royse City wound up fifth with a 927 and Greenville was sixth at 930.
