Palacios’ White heads to 3A state golf tourney

Palacios senior Rachel White had the best two rounds of her career last month, and is hoping that her strong play continues this week.

White is the lone golfer from the area that will compete in the UIL girl’s 3A golf championships, starting on Monday and ending Tuesday at the Grey Rock Golf Course in Austin. Her tee time will be at 8:55 a.m. on Monday.

White won the Region IV individual championship last month in San Marcos by posting a career-best 85 on the second day of competition. She shot a 94 on the first day to take the early lead.

White participated in regionals for the third year in a row. She qualified for regionals by shooting a 96 at the district meet last month at the District 28-3A tournament at the Rio Colorado course, good for second place.
