HELOTES, Texas, Oct. 12, 2015 – O’Connor senior Nick Duggan won third place individually at the 2015 Fall State Preview at Wolfdancer Golf Club in Bastrop on Oct. 2-3, leading the Panther varsity in a tourney that featured 23 of the state’s top Class 6A teams. As a team, O’Connor finished third-best from the San Antonio area.
Duggan fired rounds of 72-73 for a one-over-par total of 145, only four shots out of first place individually, in a field of 115 players. The O’Connor team – including also Justin Clary, Jonah Guajardo, Josh Tostado and Griffin Koehler – totaled 645 for the tourney, boosted by a second-day rally of 313.
“Nick once again showed why he is one of the best high school golfers in the state, and on a big stage,” said O’Connor Golf Coach Bryan Heath. “And I was particularly happy with the team’s second-day performance, which hints at some solid performance to come.”
Also, on Oct. 5, the O’Connor Girls Junior Varsity team finished third place in its inaugural event, the NISD Novice tourney at The Buckhorn Golf Course in Comfort. The young team was led by Bronte Ramirez, with a nine-hole total of 49. Rounding out the team were Kaitlyn Zepeda, Taylor Loera, Jordan Taylor and Calista Valuk. The tournament included eight teams from the San Antonio area, Round Rock and Ingram.
“I was very proud of the girls, this being their very first high school tourney,” said Assistant Golf Coach Kathleen Segura. “They showed a lot of poise and represented our golf program very well.”
