Wet conditions could force Greenville High School’s scheduled golf tournament to get moved back in starting time on Monday at Webb Hill Country Club in Wolfe City.

“We’re looking at maybe moving it back to 11 o’clock,” said Lions coach Roger Zunigha. “If it’s wet we’ll play. If it’s drizzling we’ll play. Lightning, we don’t want any part of.”

Zunigha’s expecting 12 teams to compete including the host Lions, plus two teams from North Lamar, two from Sulphur Springs, Mount Pleasant, Paris, Mount Vernon, Royse City, Cumby, Pleasant Grove and Ector.

The Lions have finished fourth and sixth in their two tournaments so far this spring. They fired a 359 to finish fourth at Sulphur Springs on Feb. 27 as Chris Haayen led the Lions with an 81, Nathan McKinney shot an 87, Justin Parrish carded a 95 and Carlos DeLaGuardia shot a 96.

Greenville fired a 360 to wind up sixth at the North Lamar tournament on March 6. Parrish led the Lions in that tournament with an 80. Haayen shot an 86, while DeLaGuardia shot a 94, McKinney a 105 and Jerod Garcia fired a 108.

Rowdy Spradling, competing as a medalist, shot an 88 for Greenville at North Lamar.

This will be the Lions’ final tournament before beginning the 54-hole District 12-4A tournament on March 27 at the Paris Golf and Country Club. Round two of the district tournament is set for April 4 at Webb Hill and the third 18-hole round is on April 10 in Texarkana.

The Greenville Lady Lions also have a girls tournament scheduled for Wednesday at Wright Park in Greenville.
