Other scores from the WCHS boys team at the district tournament were Jax King 95, Lincoln Sain 110, and Chase Boley 125.

Lauren Slatton shot 75, making her the top girl scorer in the district. She shot an impressive 35 on the back nine. 

Slatton said, “It felt great! I am going to go in this with all I’ve got!” 

Sawyer Seymour was excited to advance to the region and said, “Me and Chase are ready to play.”
