Deer Park sweeps District 22-6A Golf Championships

Apparently the pandemic, without size, shape or form, has affected Deer Park High School’s golf program.

It was damn good before the pandemic and as evidenced by the District 22-6A tournament at the Pasadena Golf Club, it’s still damn good.

With Team Deer Park I boasting the top three medalists, the men’s team clinched their 99th district championship or something close to that number with a two-day total of 488. As is program tradition, Deer Park II gave the A team their toughest competition by finishing second with a 540.

The girls, led by new head coach Madison Milliorn, won by nearly 100 strokes over Deer Park II, carding the team total of 513 and the B team finishing with a 611.

Day 2 of this all-important tournament was cut to nine holes after Wednesday morning rains postponed the start.

There was still room for the Memorial and South Houston boys camp celebration. Memorial’s Joseph Fitzgerald and South Houston’s Blayke Muse each reached the clubhouse with 124 totals, sending the pair to the Region III meet later this month at Eagle Pointe Golf Club in Mont Belvieu.

Muse, quite possibly the strongest Trojan golfer in decades, shot rounds of 84 and 40, while Fitzgerald had scores of 87 and 37. Muse alone held third place in the medal standings after this 84.

Longtime Deer Park head coach Mark Boyd has seen gradual improvement from his guys through the fall and winter.

“Mason came, Dylan Gonzalez came. They’ve all been pretty solid all year. I’m proud of how far we’ve come this year,” Boyd said. rather difficult places.

Just four strokes separated first to fourth on Deer Park I. Gavin Gonzalez led with a 120 (82-38), followed by Reece Whittemore with a 121 (82-39), Mason Ovela had a 123 (85 -38) and Dylan Gonzalez scored 124 (86-38). The team was completed by Levi Robinson and his 137.

Deer Park II was led by Jeremy Lejeune’s 130 (87-43), Brenden Rehbein was just one shot away (90-41) and Ty Nixon was just one shot behind Rehbein with a 132 (87 -45). Jake Linney recorded a 150 (99-51) and Blake Tronson recorded a 151 (96-55).

The Mavs finished third as a team with a 590. After Fitzgerald, the team saw Ethan Esquivel score a 142 (97-45) and Ryan Mancayo a corner kick 156 (113-43). Abel Maldonado and Brandon Bui completed the effort with scores of 170 and 189.

Dobie scored a 743, Pasadena an 867, Sam Rayburn an 835 and Channelview an 622.

On the women’s side, Deer Park I had the top three medalists in Laila Sanders, who shot a 119, Alyssa York shooting a 121 and Karlee Mixon hitting a 134. Catherine Campbell’s 139 and Gracie Rodriguez’s 145 rounded out the scores for the team.

“Most of our girls are freshmen, so I think for them it was very stressful coming here for their first district tournament. They really showed me how awesome they are,” said said Milliorn, who has six freshmen on both teams to go along with a pair of sophomores.

The Deer Park II team includes the names of Maya Maclaine, Carrie Watson, Charly Renteria, Catherine Baez and Maddie Grimet.

Sam Rayburn’s Briana Plancarte scored 105 and 52 for a tally of 157, giving her a ticket to regional action. Deer Park’s Regan Petty, playing as a medalist with two other Lady Deers, shot rounds of 108 and 50 for a trip to regionals.

Memorial High School won third place with a 722. Emma French (165), Sarah Bui (171), Alexa Cavasos (184), and Kennedy Lopez (221) were the two-day contestants.

Just 15 strokes down in fourth, Dobie with a 737. Isabel Brasfield led the way with a 173.
