                                                                                                                               385


***Jon Steiner led the team with a 94 (season-best), and Collin Walker added a 96.  Cole Pitchford and Ethan Funk each added 97's, and Tyler Kies made a huge come-back to shoot 98.  This round marks the first sectional tournament for Houston with 5 rounds below 100 in over 8 years.  


    Our team score of 385 marks a 45 stroke improvement for this group of seniors from their freshman year (team score of 430 in 2016).  When taking into account all 5 total scores, the improvement is even more impressive (483 total in 2019 vs. 574 total in 2016).  Thank you to all of our graduating seniors for their years of hard work!
