After a full year of dedication and progress, the golf team will finally see their season come to a close as the boys team gears up for the state tournament. It’s been a largely successful season so far for the team, and they will only look to add to that at state and close the season strong.

“The season has been great,” head coach Cary Williams said. “We have had some ups and downs with injuries, but for the most part we have endured and had success. I like our chances at State this year, and I expect us go get back there again next year, hopefully to defend our title.”

The girls season saw plenty of success. After a quality build-up to the UIL tournaments, the Lady Wolves finished second in the district, moving on to regionals. Once there, the team finished eighth, coming just short of a berth in the state tournament.

“I think we accomplished a lot this season,” girls captain Kat Brooks said. “We truly set a new standard for girls golf at Cedar Park.”

The boys’ team has taken a huge step forward this year as one of central Texas’ top teams. After a fantastic start to the year, the boys have really found their form. The Timberwolves won the district championship as freshman HS Chang and junior Ben Dunne tied for second in that tournament. Later, the Wolves cruised to another championship, this time at regionals. Chang won the tournament individually to lead the Wolves to state.

“The season for the guys’ team has been pretty great,” senior Jay Nam said. “We’ve had many great tournaments so far this year, winning district with a 20 shot lead. We also won regionals by a fairly large margin. We have our own fair share of ups and downs but the results have been fairly astounding. The varsity team seems to be in fairly good form to contend at state.”

The guys now turn their attention to the state tournament coming up in mid-May. Having found their stride, the boys are confident in their chances, and will look to bring a state championship back to Cedar Park.

“Regardless of how we finish at state, I consider the season a success because of how well we’ve played together and what we’ve already accomplished,” Dunne said. “I hope to win state and feel we have a shot if we all play well.”

The state tournament will take place over the course of Monday and Tuesday, May 21-22. Tee times start at 8 a.m. at the Wolfdancer Golf Club in Bastrop.
