Girls’ Golf Team Brings Home Tourney Title

Fredericksburg High School’s varsity girls’ golf team won the East Central Invitational on Monday, Nov. 13, at the Republic Golf Club in San Antonio.

The Billies combined for a gross score of 352 strokes to take the tournament, playing against 5A and 6A schools.

Gracie Grona won first medalist with a round of 80, and Allison James was the tournament’s second medalist after carding a round of 83.

“Outstanding rounds from Gracie and Allison on a very long course,” coach Tim Kaman said. “(I’m) very proud of our girls. It was a very long day, with over 130 competitors, so it took over seven hours to complete the round. We showed a lot of patience.”

“We need to continue to work on our putting, but our short iron play and chipping continues to improve,” he said. Delaney Whitworth, Estella McMurrey and A’Hisha Rodriguez also contributed to FHS’ effort.

The girls play again in a Smithson Valley Tournament on Nov. 27 in Spring Branch.
