Alpha Omega Academy golfers shine, advance to state tournament

HUNTSVILLE — Last Wednesday at Southwyck Golf Course in Pearland, the Alpha Omega Academy boys took second place at the South Regional tournament to advance for the TAPPS Class 2A State championship that will be held at Stonetree Golf Course in Killeen on April 28 and 29.

Also reaching the state golf tournament is freshman Isabel Huntsman, who shot an 89 to place fifth.

Taylor Ernst had an exciting day after firing a 76, then had to play in a sudden death playoff after tying for first.

With a gallery of more than 100 people watching, he barely missed his birdie putt and had to play another playoff hole. Although his tee shot was near a fence, he recovered nicely with a layup to 80 yards.

His approach shot landed pin high, five feet to the left of the hole. Once again his putt barely missed so he had to settle for second place.

Dylan Rowe realized he was tied for ninth place with two other players. Starting again on No. 9, one opponent was eliminated by hitting three balls into the water. On the green in regulation with the other opponent, Rowe barely missed his birdie putt and went to the next playoff hole.

After their tee shots, his opponent was in the middle of the fairway 140 yards out but missed the green on his approach shot. Rowe’s tee shot was 30 yards further but in a fairway bunker. His approach sand shot landed six feet from the flag. He two-putted to beat his opponent and secure ninth place.

Tucker Harris finished eighth place with an 84.

    Uncertainty isn’t always a precursor to unmitigated disaster. The Sam Houston State football team will enter the 2014 season with a new coaching staff, new offensive and defensive schemes and a plethora of new faces competing for starting jobs that were vacated by players who helped lead the program to three consecutive playoff appearances.
    The schedule is daunting, but  it’s not out of the question for the Bearkats to go undefeated in conference play this fall. The roster is young and relatively inexperienced, but there are talented players on the depth chart who have not yet had an opportunity to showcase their skills. There are plenty of reasons to temper expectations for 2014, but also many reasons to hope the Bearkats can win the games they are supposed to win and find their way to the playoffs again.
