The Waxahachie Indian golf team opened its fall season over the weekend at Squaw Valley Golf Club in the Glen Rose Invitational.

The fall season is less about the final standings and more about improving each time on the course, as the Indians work toward a shot at a district championship in the spring.

Waxahachie opened the two-day tournament in a tie for fourth-place with Midlothian after firing a 311 before a bit of a stumble in round two (315) for a 626 team total.

The golfers began the two-day tournament Friday morning on Comanche Lakes. The tree-lined course featured several water-hazards and measures 7,000 yards from the tips.

Grant Armstrong opened the tournament with a 2-over-par 74, the lowest during the two days for the Tribe. He then shot an 81 on Saturday to finish as the low-man with a 155 on the weekend.

Armstrong also holed a team-high six birdies and added 17 pars.

Tobyn Hood (78-79, 157) and Jake Reames (79-78, 157) were the only other two Waxahachie golfers to break 80 on day one.

The two combined for five birdies and 43 pars on the weekend to just four double bogeys or worse.

Day two pitted the golfers against the true-to-name links-style "front course," formally known as Apache Links. After maneuvering the rolling hills and raised greens for 14 holes, golfers then closed with four of the toughest nine holes on the course, which included a 521-yard par-5 dogleg on No. 18.

The links coursed measures 7,063 yards from the farthest tees and also carried a par of 72.

Clayton Knight was the low man for the Tribe on day two with a 5-over-par 77 after his opening round 80 (157). He recorded a team-high 22 pars and added three birdies.

Jett Tekell (86-83, 169) and Zach Navarro (86-83, 169) rounded out the Indians on the weekend.


The Indians will take two varsity teams to the North Forney Pink Out on Thursday, Oct. 11 at Fireside Golf Club.
