Sweetwater’s Michael Hunt has a shot at a state tournament medalist berth after an opening 75 Mon-day at the Region I-3A tour-nament in Lubbock.
He trails Andrews’ G.K. Morrison (71) by four shots at the Shadow Hills Golf Course and is tied for sev-enth place entering today’s final round. The top three individuals not on one of the top three teams will go to the state meet in Austin as medalists April 28-29, and Hunt would advance to the state meet in his current position.
Andrews Black (296), Lampasas (306) and Llano (309) were sitting at 1-2-3 in the team standings enter-ing today’s final round — the top three go to Austin. The top six medalists Mon-day all played for one of the top three teams. Hunt is tied with Gatesville’s Zane Washburn for seventh. Six other golfers, however, are just one shot back and tied for ninth place. Hunt, who is just a sophomore, is in his first regional tournament.
Wylie (320) is fifth in the team standings and Big Spring is tied for sixth (321). Wylie’s Matt Redwine and Devin Roberson of Big Spring are among the six golfers who shot 76s Mon-day to trail Hunt by just one shot in ninth place.
