The Bowie boy’s golf team is heading back to state tournament after competing at the regional tournament this week.
The Jackrabbits finished third overall, shooting 630 total after two days of competing at the Diamondback National Golf Club in Abilene.
Bowie was trying to get back to state for the third time in the last four years and improve on its third place finish since it returned everyone, but knew it would be tough.
State-power Brock, which finished ahead of the Jackrabbits at state last year, had two teams competing as well as Lubbock-Cooper Liberty showing off the program’s depth. Wall was not far behind as well, nipping at Bowie’s heels.
The conditions were perfect and several players were shooting the best they have all season. Cy Egenbacher led the team shooting 74 the first day. Rayder Mann (77) and Zac Harris (78) joined him the 70s which is really good and the first time all season three Bowie players had done it in one round.
Andrew Sandhoff shot 81 to round out the team’s score to 310 which put the team in third place, three shots behind Brock in second place and seven shots back from Cooper Liberty in first place.
Blanco was six shots back from Bowie in fourth place.
Hunter Lea shot 83, but it did not count towards the team total since it counts a team’s four lowest scores.
The second day saw all but one of the Jackrabbits players shoot a bit worse. Harris was the only player to shoot better as he shot 75 to lead the team.
Egenbacher shot 77. Mann and Sandhoff both shot 84 to put the team’s total for day two at 320. Hunter Lea shot 88 on day two.
Unfortunately, with Bowie’s score increasing by 10 from day one, it did not leave the possibility for the Jackrabbits to move up in the standings.
Brock’s team repeated its score from day one while Cooper Liberty actually lowered its score by seven shots from day one.
Blanco’s team increased its day two total by 10 shots as well to leave the door open for Wall to jump in the standings as it lowered its second day total by two shots.
Still, Bowie finished six shots ahead of Wall to get the final state qualifying spot.
Egenbacher had the lowest total for the Jackrabbits, shooting 151 during the two days as he finished tied for sixth place individually.
Harris shot 153 and was tied for 12th place individually. Mann shot 161 and finished tied for 24th. Sandhoff shot 165 and finished 33rd while Lea shot 171 and placed 49th.
