Young Ladycats finish 12th at 5A state golf tournament; gain valuable experience

Natalyn Yates tees off in first-round action at the UIL Class 5A state golf tournament at Wolfdancer Golf Club in Bastrop on Monday.

Playing with four sophomores and a freshman, the Aledo Ladycats golf team was a surprise qualifier for the girls’ Class 5A state golf tournament at Wolfdancer Golf Club in Bastrop.

At the regional tournament the Ladycats advanced as the third-place team, but the squad earned a feather in its cap when it came back in the second round to defeat Joshua for the final spot. Joshua had beaten the Ladycats by 40 strokes at the District 8-5A tournament, where Aledo finished second.

After Monday’s opening round the Ladycats were 12th among 12 teams after shooting a 383, and on Tuesday the AHS ladies did not gain any ground, shooting a 400. The team finished in 12th place with a 36-hole total of 783.

“This tournament was all about gaining experience,” AHS head golf coach Jeff lemons said. “It was all about the learning experience. The girls had a good time, and they got to experience something not many high school girls get to experience.”

Rylee Gabbert and Madison Wyss each finished with 36-hole totals of 194 to lead the Ladycats. Gabbert shot 89 in the opening round on Monday and carded a 105 today. Wyss shot 93 on Monday and 101 today.

Lilli Ingram finished at 203 (102-101), followed by Deyton Deller with a 212 (119-93) and Natalyn Yates with a 216 (99-117).

Deyton Deller of Aledo High School putts on the 1st green at the UIL Class 5A state golf tournament at Wolfdancer Golf Club in Cedar Creek on Monday, April 25, 2016.
