BELLA VISTA — Led by freshman Teagen Muldoon’s medalist-winning score of 82, the Gravette Lion girls golf team qualified for the 4A state tournament in play held on Sept. 20 at the Highlands Golf Course.

The Gravette team, consisting of Muldoon, Rachel Deihl, Karley Auffet and Brooke Handle, carded a score of 297 to finish 47 strokes ahead of third place Huntsville in the 4A-1 district tournament. The Shiloh Christian team took first place on the girls side with a score of 279.

Also qualifying for state from the boys side was Gravette’s Isaiah Larson, who shot an 84 on the par72 course to finish third overall and first among the individual qualifiers. The Gravette boys team finished fourth in the team competitio­n with a score of 292.

The top 4A-1 boys teams were Shiloh Christian with a score of 254 and Berryville which carded a 267. In 4A high school golf, teams consist of up to four players with the best three scorecards tallied for the overall team score.

For the Muldoon family, bringing home district medalist honors is becoming commonplac­e. Teagen’s older brother Braxton won medalist honors last year on the boys side for Gravette.

Other scores for the Lion girls were Deihl with a 93, which was good enough for third place overall, Auffet with 122, and Handle with 125. The district performanc­e placed the Gravette team in the state tournament to be held Monday after press time at the Magellan Golf Course in Hot Springs Village.

Larson’s teammate scores for the boys were Aiden Lewallen with a 102, Brendan Gebhart with a 106, and McCoy Kildow with 107.
