Three Republic golfers earned all-district honors and advanced to sectionals with their performances at Carthage Golf Course Monday. Griffin Frey, Kolby Hosp, and Kendall Hamilton will all move on.
The Tigers finished with a team score of 348 to finish third. They were ten strokes behind the second-place team. The top two teams advance all five golfers to sectionals.
Frey sliced his first shot of the day into the woods left of the fairway on hole #1, but he didn’t let the rough start slow him down. He finished with the best score of any Republic golfer at 84. That was good enough for a tie for sixth.
Hosp finished tied for ninth at 85, and Hamilton was tied for 11th with an 86.
Tyson Young and Austin O’Hara fell short of qualifying. Young shot a 93 and O’Hara a 96.
Sectionals are next Monday at Schifferdecker Golf Course in Joplin.
