Pecos junior high golfers get first in medallist races

A pair of Pecos Eagle junior high golfers won the medallist titles this past weekend after the final round of the five-round area tournament, while Pecos' two teams placed third overall in their divisions.

Mikey Nichols and Shelly Martinez took first place honors in the individual competition, after the final round of the tournament was held on Saturday at the Winkler County Golf Course in Kermit. Martinez tied for second over the final nine holes of the tournament with a 48, one stroke behind Monahans' Allison Jordan, but overall beat out Jordan for medallists honors by four strokes over 45 holes of play, shooting a 247 to Jordan's 251.

Nichols tied Andrews' Jase Kolb for final round medallist honors on Saturday, after both shot 84s, and beat out Kolb by five strokes for tournament medallist honors, shooting a 411 over 90 holes to Kolb's 416.

Monahans' girls and Andrews boys ended up winning the overall team titles. The Loboes shot a final round 208 to finish with a 1088 score, while Andrews was second, shooting a 220 to finish with an 1153 score. Pecos shot a 231 at Kermit and was next with a 1196 total, while Andrews `B' shot a 235 and was fourth, with a 1208 total.

Susan Bradley shot a final round of 63 and finished with a 344 total, and Evelyn Flores shot a 69 for Pecos' other individual score.

Pecos' boys shot their low round of the five-round tournament on Saturday, a 376, to finish with a 1919 score overall.
