Members of the Elsberry R-II High School Golf Team competed in Sectionals at Deer Chase Golf Course in Linn Creek on May 19.

“Wayne Holland, Gavin Hill and Alex Kinsler all qualified to go to the sectional tournament,” said Head Coach Ryan Parker. “You need four golfers to compete as a team so all three guys had to compete on an individual basis.”

Hill achieved an individual score of 82, which qualified him for the state meet on May 19-20.

Kinsler missed qualifying for the state competition by a mere five strokes.

“Alex was in the top 13 but they only take the top 12,” said Parker.

The state meet will be held at River Cut Golf Course in Springfield.
