The Lady Mustangs golf team created school history for Buffalo Island Central on Wednesday, Sept. 28, as they earned the title of state runner-Up.
This was the first state title for BIC girls golf as a team. Individual state awards have been presented in the past, but a team has never qualified for the honor.
The 2A Girls State Tournament was held at StoneLinks Golf Course in Little Rock.
There were 11 teams represented and several individual qualifiers. Approximately 55 girls participated in the event.
The Mustangs shot a team score of 298, just two strokes shy of the championship score. Eureka springs shot a 296 to pull off first place.
Twins, Sarah and Lauren Roddy, led the Mustangs with a tied score of 92. Brittany Stockton added a 114 to the play 4 count 3 score and Shania Junyor shot a 126.
Sarah and Laruen both made the All State Team and placed fifth top individuals in State with the tied score.
"This was a great way to end our senior season," the Roddy twins said. "Our goal was to place in the top five as individuals and we made it. We never imagined winning first or second as a team. When scores started rolling in and we realized we were at the top we were so excited. We are proud and honored to add this title to our golf achievements."
"I am proud of the girls," Coach Cary Cossey said. "These girls have worked hard all year and they deserve the title. Our goal was to get to State and finish in the top five. We did and making it to the top two put the icing on the cake. The girls had a great season. They were three strokes short of having a Perfect Season. They have won every game they played this season up until the State Tournament. They have to walk away proud of themselves. They have done an amazing job."
