GRAND PRAIRIE

For the third consecutive year, the Waxahachie Indian golf team has qualified for the regional tournament.

It wasn't easy, though.

The Indians' first-team — juniors Luke Morgan, Clayton Knight, Jett Tekell and Tobyn Hood, and freshman Jake Reames — trailed Midlothian (334), Mansfield Lake Ridge (331) and Mansfield Legacy (325) after day one of the two-day District 10-5A tournament held April 4—5 at Tangle Ridge Golf Course in Grand Prairie.

Waxahachie then knocked 15 strokes off of its 335 day-one team score to finish in second place and earn a regional tournament berth. Legacy claimed the district championship with a 642, while Waxahachie posted a 655, Midlothian a 661, and Lake Ridge a 662.

Reames shaved 13 strokes off of his day one score to card a 74 on day two (161), while Tekell was the Indian low-man with a 159 (83-76) two-day total.

Morgan (164), Knight (171) and Hood (184) rounded out the tournament for the Indians first team.

Tekell and Reames were named to the All-District 10-5A first team. Morgan found himself on the All-District 10-5A second team after a solid two days on the course.

Waxahachie No. 2 carded its two best single-round scores on the season, first recording a 345 on day one and then firing a 334 on day two (679).

Grant Armstrong led the second team with a 167 two-day total. Zach Navarro finished two shots back after he was the low-man on day two with an 82 (169).

Luke Thomison (170), Nic Simmel (174), and Jake Davis (173) round out the team score.

Clay Brown (187) and Michael Davis (184) competed as medalists.

Waxahachie No. 1 participates in the 5A Region II tournament April 23-24 at Rockwall Golf and Athletic Club.
