The Grapeland girls’ golf team shaved 20 strokes off of its first round score in Friday’s second round at Lions Municipal Golf Course in Austin, seemingly putting them in a prime spot to possibly overtake first-place Memphis.
But, Memphis cut its own score by 11 strokes to claim the gold with a two-day total of 685.
Grapeland finished with a 724 over the events two days, claiming second place for the second-straight year.
The Sandiettes finished 51 strokes ahead of third-place Gruver.
Jayde Westbrook carded a two-day 170 (89-81) to finish eighth-overall at the tournament, the highest Grapeland player on the leaderboard.
Amy Brown (175) and Shelby Frauenberger (181) finished 14th and 15th, respectively, while Justine Dancer (27th) and Kalee Walker (28th) rounded out Grapeland’s top-five.
Grapeland’s Cameron Boyd shot a two-day 157 (74-83) to claim fourth overall in the boys’ tournament at Lions.
