SHS golfers close out fall schedule
Stephenville High School’s varsity golf teams closed out their fall 2020 schedule this week in the Glen Rose Fall Invitational at Squaw Creek Golf Course, with the Honeybees taking fourth place Thursday and the Yellow Jackets finishing fifth among the boys on Wednesday.
The varsity Bees posted a team score of 441 in Glen Rose for fourth, and SHS senior Kylie Roberts recorded the best individual girls score in the event.
Roberts’ score of 88 included an eagle 2 on the par-4 7th hole after driving the green and almost hitting a hole-in-one.
Next for SHS behind Roberts, junior Emmaleigh Daniel scored a 112, followed by senior Jordan Beyer with a 119, and freshman Kaylee Fair at 122.
The SHS boys placed fifth out of 12 teams in Glen Rose, firing a score of 350. Senior Hunter Rudloff was third overall with a 1-over 73. Next for SHS was senior Tyler Heller with a 78, for sixth place, followed by sophomore Landen Toof at 92 and senior Brady Morton with a 107. Senior Grayson Traweek did not play this week.
"I thought both teams had a great fall season,” SHS golf coach Jason Hodges said. “We have some new faces on the girls side and they have really improved since we started practice back in late August. The boys have been very competitive throughout the fall season and our JV kiddos have also improved vastly since last season.
“Our varsity boys have a great opportunity to do some special things in the spring so we look forward to getting back to work in the spring. I also want to give a shoutout to Coach (Casey) Weil who has assisted the golf programs this fall and he has done a great job with our golfers. He has helped them grow in the game and the results have shown that."
The varsity boys competed at the Glen Rose Fall Invite Sept. 25-26 and finished fifth out of 14 teams, shooting 320-310 and finishing behind Class 6A powerhouses Hebron and Waxahachie, and private school Trinity Christian and their two teams.
