Garcias Advance to San Angelo
by Lonnie Flippen -
Valentine Senior golfer, Jaci Garcia competed in her last district golf tournament on Wednesday, April 5th on a very cold and blustery day at the Marfa golf course which is the highest golf course in the state. Jaci shot a 122 on the day which qualified her to the regional meet in San Angelo on April 24 and 25 as a medalist from District 9A. Jaci was the first alternate to the regional tournament as a junior.
Jessie Garcia, Jaci's younger sister, shot a 126 and will travel to San Angelo as the first alternate to the regional meet. Jessie is just returning to competition after suffering a severe concussion a few months ago. Jessie was a regional qualifier as a sophomore.
Other schools that participated in the district tournament included Fort Davis, Big Bend, Marfa, and Sierra Blanca.
Congratulations to the Garcia girls and best of luck in San Angelo.
