Posted by Village School Athletics on Apr 26 2017 at 08:55AM PDT

The TAPPS 6A State Golf Tournament was held at Wildflower Country Club on April 24th and 25th. The Village School had 2 Senior qualifiers, Daniel P and Mariana O, who both advanced from the TAPPS South Regional Tournament as Medalist golfers after finishing in the top 20 overall.

The course was playing very difficult, with wind gusts up to 25 mph and lightning fast greens. Both Daniel and Mariana adapted well to the conditions, both improving on their Round 1 scores of 91 (Daniel) and 94 (Mariana). Round 2 had overcast skies and it was chilly in the morning. Daniel started his round with a birdie on the par 5 1st hole. He played solid golf in Round 2 and shot an 88, bringing his 2-day total to 179. Mariana O started her round with a par on the par 4 10th hole. After a +9 front 9, Mariana got in a nice rhythm on the back 9, where she shot a 39. Her Round 2 score was an 84, which was the 7th best score in Round 2. Her 2-day total was 178, which earned her a t-17th place in State!

Congratulations to Mariana and Daniel for qualifying to the TAPPS 6A State Tournament. They each had fantastic seasons and excellent careers. Mariana advanced to the State Tournament in each of her 3 years at The Village School. Daniel P also advanced to the State Tournament each year since joining The Village School as a junior.

Go Vikings!
