Mustangs Finish 3rd at Grizzly Classic
Thomas LeCrone, Hayden Halaska, Gus Montgomery, Kyle Krouse, and Henry Shavlan teamed up and competed in the 36-hole Grizzly Fall Classic hosted by Grand Oaks High School at Cypresswood Golf Club this past Tuesday. The Traditions Course at Cypresswood proved to be a tough test for the 8-team field, but the Mustangs managed their way around the course and took advantage of the gettable holes. It was a slow start, until the squad fought back in the middle of their round and posted a solid first round score of 321. Leading the team in the morning round was Thomas’s 5-over par round of 77 followed by Gus’s 79, then Hayden’s 81, Kyle’s 83, and Henry’s 90. After the morning round the Mustangs sat in 3rd place behind Stratford and The Woodlands. The heat showed up in the afternoon with zero wind and a lot of humidity, making the second round a grind. Thomas managed to play his last 14 holes at 1-over par to card a 78 for the team and his two round total of 155 put him in 4th place individually for the event! Gus shot a second round score of 80 placing him in the top 10 for the tournament. Kyle shot 82 in the afternoon, Hayden 85, and Henry 100. The team scores of 321-324 earned the Mustangs 3rd place for the tournament! Next up for the Mustangs is the Jay Brewer Tiger Classic, October 7-8 up in Texarkana, TX! Win The Day!
Mustangs Take 5th At The Bart Granger Memorial Tournament
The Mustangs kicked off the 2022-2023 season up in Fort Worth at the Bart Granger Memorial Tournament. By far the biggest field of the year with 52 different schools competing in the 54-hole event. The team of Charlie Wylie, Gray Gammill, Edward Li, Anthony Roa, and Turner Chiles played 36 holes on Friday and finished off the tournament with a final 18 holes on Saturday. The Mustangs opened up play on the Hills Course and got off to a decent start, but struggled a bit coming in. The first round score of 296 was led by Charlie’s 4-under par round of 68 that included six birdies. Gray, Edward, and Turner all shot 76 and Anthony carded 81. The team found a groove during the second round on the River course and finished off the late afternoon with a solid team score of 289. This put the team in 4th place and in the lead pairing with Dallas Jesuit, Plano West, Mansfield, and San Antonio Johnson headed into Saturday’s final round. Gray’s 1-over par round of 71 led the team in the second round followed by Turner’s 72, Anthony and Charlie’s 73s and Edward’s 78. The final round score of 296 was led by Charlie and Turner’s rounds of 71, then Edward’s 75, Anthony’s 79, and Gray’s 82. This was good enough to earn the Mustangs a 5th place finish out of the 52 team field! Charlie’s tournament total of even par earned him a tie for 4th individually. Next up for the Mustangs is the Grand Oaks Invitational at Cypresswood in Spring, TX on September 20th! Win The Day!
