Golf: Blue Devil’s Send Two Golfers To State
Mason Wade shot the lowest score of the day, on the boys side, and qualified for state with a 77 for the Jackson County Blue Devils.
“I had four double bogeys today but I had four or five birdies,” Wade said. “It was totally different out there today. I had a few good puts and a few good iron shots that put that ball up there close to the pin. Last week in the district tournament I shot a 77 and never had a birdie.”
Alex Barlow also qualified for the state tournament with an 81.
“I started off really good,” Barlow said. “My round went pretty good… I just wish I could have brought some of my higher scores a little bit lower.”
As a team the Blue Devils shot a four man score of 348 finishing second behind Upperman.
“It feels good,” head coach Gary Flynn said. “They have worked hard getting ready. They both got there last year so expectations were pretty high. I wish the whole team could have went but this is the next best thing.”
