The Waxahachie varsity girls golf team competed in the regional tournament April 22-23 at Tangle Ridge.
“First, I would like to congratulate the five young ladies that took Waxahachie High School to their first Regional Golf Tournament in Class 6A,” head girls golf coach Lonnie Gaylor said. “Their hard work all year made this goal happen. Our senior Olivia Tolliver and juniors Ana Herrin, Baylie Paris, Kayli Nash and Marisabel Garza had an outstanding 2018-19 golf season.”
Waxahachie finished in 11th place of the 16 schools at the Regional Tournament. The team shot 364 the first day and 356 on day two. Scores for the Lady Indians were:
Baylir Paris 85-87 172
Olivia Tolliver 90-89 179
Marisabel Garza 91-88 179
Kayli Nash 98-92 190
Ana Herrin 99-100 199
The top three teams headed to state are Southlake Carroll, Flower Mound Marcus and Byron Nelson.
The top three medalists headed to state are Trinty King of Arlington Martin, Jennie Park of Hebron and Ryann Honea of San Angelo.
The Lady Indians have two seniors in Olivia Tolliver and Mackenzie Parks that “we will miss not only for their golf but the way that they represent themselves on and off the course,” Gaylor said. “The good news is that we have four juniors coming back and they now know what it takes for Region 1 6-A golf.”
Gaylor and his wife, Myra, expressed their appreciation to the Lady Indian golfers and their parents for their support of the Waxahachie Indian Golf Program.
