Carroll Golf Teams Excel at Regionals; Advance to State

The last few weeks have been very successful for the Carroll Golf program. Both the Lady Dragon and Dragon golf teams have punched their tickets to the UIL State Golf Tournament with outstanding play on the course.

The Lady Dragon team consisting of Stephanie Lee, Riley McDole, Michelle Zhou, Karen Lee, and Ashton Begley took to the course on April 22 and 23 in the Region I tournament. A two-day performance that saw the Lady Dragons outpace the other teams by over 20 strokes sealed the Regional Championship and a bid to the State Tournament for the Lady Dragons in Georgetown at the Legacy Hills Golf Course on May 13-14. Lee finished +1 on the tournament and fourth overall.

The Dragon Golf team played against some of the best competition in the region during their two-day tournament last week. Evan Paquette, Braxton Neiman, Daniel Fuller, Tanner Bevill, and Jack Beauchamp shot an impressive +7 on the tournament and finished behind only the team from Hebron High School. Beauchamp finished -4 on the tournament and earned third overall in the region. The silver medal finish was enough to earn their spot in the UIL State Tournament at Legacy Hills Golf Course in Georgetown May 20-21.
