Dragons head to regionals

By Clay Corbett | Published Saturday, April 13, 2013

The Chico Dragons are heading to the regional tournament after a two-day total of 761 was good enough for second place. They finished behind first-place Goldthwaite who had a 705.

They will compete at the regional tournament at Shady Oaks Golf Club in Baird, April 15-16.

Chico only had four players, but was still able to hold off third place DeLeon who had a 765.

“I’m proud of how the kids handled the pressure of the competition,” Chico coach Lane Wilson said. “We had the disadvantage of only having a four-man team, but was still able to get it done.”

Teams with five players have the luxury of dropping the highest score.

Hunter York led the way with a third-place finish, shooting an 87 on day one and an 83 in the final round.

Dalton Tullos took eighth with a two-day total of 185. Tyler Melton fired a 190 and Tyler Sparks penciled a 216.
