Goad finishes third


The Lady Tigers hit Weston Lakes Golf Course in Fulshear and finished before the rain started to fall last week with the senior leader taking home a medal.

Maddie Goad led the pack from Sealy with an 86-stroke round, good enough for a comfortable third-place finish. The top two golfers had to travel the least, coming from Fulshear as Tristan Gabbard took first with 78 with Erin Farrow right behind with 79.

Had conditions been better, a few more putts might have sunk earlier which could have decreased her overall score but so goes the nature of the beast with playing an outdoor sport.

The other two Lady Tiger golfers who completed the round were Lindsey Dziadek and Rayne Wallace as both Sloan Strickland and Emily Luther were out sick.

Dziadek put together her best round of golf to date in the eyes of head coach Lonnie Goad, and that showed with her 117-stroke round.

Despite the very wet conditions that made it difficult to get distance on rolls, she built up her confidence with a string of positive holes that led her to the second-place spot on her team.

Coach Goad also mentioned had a full squad been able to compete out of Sealy, the team total could have been closer to the top of the standings, which bodes well looking ahead to qualifying for a regional tournament.

However, Goad mentioned there is still plenty of ways to go and the Lady Tigers need to continue to improve to keep things close between Needville and El Campo, joining Sealy in chasing Fulshear up ahead.

This week’s schedule sent the Lady Tigers to Weimar for a Wednesday afternoon tournament with hopefully drier surfaces.
