Lady Cats stand distant second after first day of tourney
Published: Friday, March 17th, 2006
AMARILLO — The Clovis High girls stand second — albeit a distance second — after Friday’s opening round of the Amarillo Relays golf tournament, hosted by Amarillo High School. Junior Tiffany Reid shot 47-47 — 94 to lead the Lady Wildcats to a 392 total in the 12-team event at Ross Rogers Golf Course. That score earned Clovis one of three needed legs to qualify for Class 5A state competition later this spring. Suffice it to say, though, it’s a battle for second in the tournament — Amarillo High shot a four-person score of 329 for a 63-shot lead heading into today’s final round. The Lady Cats have an 11-stroke margin over third-place Canyon Randall. Other Clovis scores included senior Whitney Jones 46-51 — 97, senior Brianne Bracken 49-50 — 99, junior Amanda Estes 52-50 — 102 and junior Marissa Lansford 52-54 — 106. Amarillo High’s Morgan Moon and Carly Osbourne share the individual medalist lead at eight-over-par 80. In boys competition, going on at two courses, the Wildcats currently stand 10th out of 17 teams with a four-man total of 355. Plainview leads the tourney at 320, followed by Amarillo High Gold at 329 and Hereford at 332. Half the teams, including Clovis, played at Tascosa Country Club with the other half at Amarillo Country Club; the teams will switch sites today. Freshman Tyler Fontenot led the Cats on Friday, shooting 40-42 — 82. Senior Jordan Moore and eighth-grader Kyler Hill each shot 46-43 — 89, while junior Brad Props came in at 50-45 — 95 and junior Ben Blair scored 49-51 — 100.
