The Frisco High School boys’ golf team made history by winning the Class 5A Region II Tournament held on Monday, April 11 and Tuesday, April 12 at the Rockwall Golf and Athletic Club and have qualified for the UIL Class 5A State Tournament. The Raccoons became the first FISD golf team to advance to state as the regional champion. The boys’ team from Wakeland High School finished second at the regional tournament and will move on to state as well.
The Frisco High team of Jenson Rogenes, Cortland Curgus, Crosby Guercio, Parker Smith and Chase Ybarra took an early lead on the field and never looked back. Their combined score of 301 on Monday put them in the lead by six strokes over Lindale and Mansfield Legacy, who finished the day tied for second place at 307. Wakeland sat in third place after Monday with a score of 311.
Wakeland’s team of Matthew Whitney, Harrison Hicks, Drake Kube, Luke Whitney, and Jackson Tuthill made a strong charge up the leaderboard on Tuesday, shooting a tournament-best 297 as a team. But it wasn’t enough to overcome Frisco High’s lead, as the Raccoons shot a 303 on Tuesday to give them a final score of 604. Wakeland finished four strokes back at 608, and Mansfield Legacy came in third with a score of 614.
Individually, Guercio walked away with a silver medal, placing second in the region after shooting a two-day total of 143.
Both Frisco High and Wakeland will compete in the state tournament to be held Monday, April 25 and Tuesday, April 26 at the Wolfdancer Golf Club in Lost Pines, Texas.
Congratulations to both teams for their success at regionals and good luck at state!
