The spring air is blowing, and as young golfers line up to swing, their journey to district is complete.
“The girls and boys teams are approaching district as a good learning experience,” Coach Lyn McDonald said, “Many of our golfers are young and inexperienced so the exposure to such a high pressure situation can be a great learning experience for them.”
Although district can be a very nerve-wracking competition, some players were actually looking forward to the playing in the new found spring weather.
“I feel [district] will be a nice experience and somewhat relieved that my golf season will end at a nice course on a nice summer day,” sophomore Shelbie Fitzsimon said.
District is being held through April 12. The boys golf team competed on April 2 and April 3 and walked away with no players advancing, but the girls are still competing at Pecan Valley with high hopes.
“I feel pretty prepared and sure that I will do my best,” Fitzsimon said.
With the lady Mavs participating in the district competition today, April 5, they feel that they are ready.
“While the team is young as a whole, they have faced all their challenges with confidence and are striving to improve their game,” McDonald added.
