Sweetwater is still in third place as a team following Monday’s second boys leg of the District 5-4A golf tournament that was held at Sweetwater Country Club.
Sweetwater shot a 367 in the second round for a 749 total and trails Big Spring (661) and Snyder (695) with one round remaining.
Only the top two teams will go to the regional tournament which is scheduled for later this month.
However, Sweetwater has two players in the hunt for an individual regional berth in Talon Raley (82-171) and Harlie Sanders (92-185) as it enters the last round. The top two individual golfers not on a qualifying team will advance to the regional tournament as well as the top two teams at district.
Markus Meneses (91-193), Chase Soles (102-200) and Collin Stafford (104-211) were Sweetwater’s other team members.
Greenwood will host the final round of the 5-4A golf tournament next Monday. Greenwood (775) is fourth and Sweetwater No. 2 (841) moved up one spot Monday to fifth followed by Greenwood No. 2 and Lake View.
Sweetwater’s No. 2 team on Monday shot 411 to pass Greenwood No. 2, which led by 16 after the first district round played last week in Big Spring.
Sweetwater No. 2 players are Devon Ford (102-195), Mason Wyrosdick (96-210), Danner Foust (102-212) and Christian Molina (111-231).
Big Spring shot 317 to widen its lead over Snyder (346), which was within just five shots of the lead after Round 1. Alex Luescher of Big Spring leads the individual race after shooting 74 for a 161 total, putting him two shots up on teammate Gabe Cates.
