LC-M’s Cox shoots to regionals

BEAUMONT — Little Cypress-Mauriceville’s Lauren Cox qualified for the Class 4A Region III Golf Championships by placing fourth overall at the District 20-4A Golf Championships held at Wildwood Monday and Tuesday.

Cox shot a 89 on Monday and improved to a 85 Tuesday to finish with a solid 174.

Nederland’s Felicia Sauceda won the girls crown while the Port Neches-Groves boys won their fourth straight team title.

Sauceda, whose practice time has been extremely limited due to the fact she was leading Nederland volleyball and soccer teams into the playoffs, added an 81 to an opening 79 for a 36-hole total of 160 to easily win medal honors. It was her third individual championship in four years, and her strong play led Nederland to its second consecutive district title.

Nederland’s girls won their team title by an even bigger margin than the PN-G boys. With Sauceda taking medal honors by 13 strokes, the Lady Bulldogs finished at 732. That was 68 shots better than PN-G.

Behind Cox for the Lady Bears were Kacie Nichols (94-111-205), Kailey Rountree (112-104-216), Ashley Young (112-107-219) and Morgan Collier (135-138-273).

Kaylie Williams (119-131-250) and Aimee Clayton (132-118-250) paced the Vidor Lady Pirates followed by teammates Morgan Jowers (129-132-261) and Paige Cortez (142-126-268).

PN-G’s boys, meanwhile, posted a second consecutive 305 for a 610 total that enabled them to win by a whopping 46 shots. The big surprise, however, was that it was Nederland and not the Indians “B” team that grabbed the second regional berth.

With Michael Glover backing up his opening day 75 with another 75, the Bulldogs edged the Indians “B” team by one stroke with a 656 total. It’s the first time in four years that PN-G won’t be taking two full teams to regionals.

PN-G sophomore Braden Bailey fired a closing 73 for a 147 to win medal honors for the second year. He and Glover were locked in a tense battle for the top spot until Bailey picked up two shots with a birdie on the par 3, 15th. Ayear ago at Bayou Din, Bailey shot 146 to win medal honors.

The Indians, who are ranked No. 4 in the state among 4A schools, and have state championship aspirations, produced six of the tournament’s seven lowest scores. Supporting Bailey on the PN-G “A” teamwere Lonnie LaBove 75-151, Tyler Rawson 79-156 and Jarrod Brown 78-156. Rawson defeated Brown in a playoff for the fourth place medal.

James Walker led Little Cypress-Mauriceville with a (84-79-163). He was followed by teammates Ryan Keszeg (88-80-168), Tyler Ridgaway (91-87-178), Daniel Toohey (100-89-189) and Tyler Freeman (104-91-195)

Vidor was paced by Wade Petrie (89-82-171), Drake Drodson (85-87-172), Bradley Antill (87-94-181), Troy Watson (98-94-192) and Brady Holcombe (100-96-196).

All of Tuesday’s winners move on to the 4A regional next Wednesday and Thursday at Raven’s Nest Golf Club in Huntsville. The PN-G boys are the defending regional champions, having come from behind to beat Huntsville last year.
