It was a fight all season, right through the end but, Wyatt Koricanek swung his way to qualify for the Class 2A UIL State Tournament after winning the Region IV-2A Golf Tournament at the Lozano Golf Course in Corpus Christi April 13, 14.
Koricanek said, “It was a tough course. On day two I was hitting really well until I hit three bogies in a row. I fought through it and still came up with a 75.”
Koricanek shot a 71 on the first round and a 75 on the second for a total of 146 to tie for first place. A two-hole play-off determined Koricanek to be the Regional IV-2A champion.
Tanner Koricanek also qualified for the state tournament as a medalist. He shot an 85 both rounds for a 170.
Yorktown placed fifth overall with a score of 754. Jake Hughs shot a 108, 112 for 220; Dylan Sinast 106, 112 for 218; Brian Metting 108, 112 for 220.
