Mercer trails leader in state golf tourney by only two strokes

AUSTIN — Ryan Mercer of Sweetwater shot a 2-over 73 on Thursday to enter today’s final round in a tie for fourth place in the boys individual stand-ings at the Class 3A state boys golf tournament.
Mercer, a junior who is making his first state appearance, trails first-round leader Sean Romero of Texarkana Pleasant Grove by just two strokes. He was scheduled to tee off for his final round at 8:10 a.m. today.
Mercer began his first round on the 17th hole as part of a shotgun start after a six-hour rain delay.
Three local athletes compete in the state track meet today: Caden Smith of Roscoe in the 1A boys discus, Callie Sandusky of Highland in the 1A girls high jump and Jayci Shel-ton of Sweetwater in the 3A girls 100-meter hurdles and 300-meter hurdles.
On Saturday, Smith — a three-time state qualifier — competes in the 1A boys shot put. Shelton is making her second state trip.
