Golfers still 2nd but lose ground

April 4, 2012

The Sweetwater High School boys and girls golf teams are still in second place in their respective district tournaments de-spite losing some ground on the leaders in the second round this week.
The Sweetwater girls — who were just one shot behind Snyder after firing a 356 in the first round — now trail Snyder by 33 strokes with 18 holes left. The top two teams will advance to the regional tournament in San Angelo on April 18-19, so Sweetwater must main-tain its position in order to advance.
