The 2018 District 15, 5A golf tournament was played April 2nd and 3rd, at Rockwall Golf and Athletic Club. The Leopard men and women had a strong finish for the second year in a row. Day one, although cold, was a good day for golf with minimal wind. Day 2 was much tougher because the wind definitely made a big presence. We also dealt with an hour rain delay. The kids handled things well. Highland Park guys and girls finished 1st and 2nd. Lovejoy finished 3rd and 4th.
The Lovejoy “Black” team finished 3rd, and shot the best district tournament score in school history, but not a new school tournament record. The Black team shot a 2 day total, 662. Freshman, Jay Pabin played a solid tournament, shooting 77-77/154, to finish 5th overall. He will move on to the regional tournament, April 23/24, as a medalist and compete for a chance to go to the state tournament. He also earned 1st Team All District Honors.

Will also receives Honorable Mention All District Honors. Senior, Jonah Barton shot 90 day one, but due to the rain delay, and his trip to “The Masters” he was not able to complete his round on day two.
