Blue Springs South’s Grant Williamson is in contention for an all-state honor after the first day of the Class 4 Missouri State High School Boys Golf Championships.

Williamson fired a 78 Monday in the first round on the par-72 Swope Memorial Golf Course. He is tied for 34th, just three strokes behind the current cutoff for all-state, which is the top 15 and ties.
