Roseburg High’s boys golf team finished second at the regional qualifier on Monday at Emerald Valley Golf Club in Creswell.
With the second place finish, the Tribe secured a spot in the Class 6A state championship. Sheldon’s boys shot a 338 to lead the qualifier by 19 shots over the Tribe.
“They were pretty ecstatic to be the first team in five years to make it to the state tournament,” Roseburg coach Chad Smith said.
The state meet will be next Monday at Tuesday at Emerald Valley.
RHS sophomore Bryce Thomason and senior Hunter Endicott led the Indians, both carding an 86.
Just one golfer in the entire field was able to break 80 during Monday’s competition.
“None of them were really happy with their scores,” coach Smith said. “It’s not a course that’s conducive to low numbers, but we were able to eliminate some mistakes and not let the mistakes we did get compound into a bad round.”
Dylan Guido shot a 92 and Josh Alexander carded a 93 on the tough course.
Roseburg golfer Koby Gilbert carded a 99. Because he had the highest score of the team, his did not count toward the combined total. Gilbert will be joining the team at the state tournament.
The state tournament will be held May 14-15 at Emerald Valley.
