Blue Springs South junior golfer Grant Williamson had a steady performance at state.
Williamson fired a second straight 78 Tuesday and remained in a tie for 34th place following the final round of the Class 4 Missouri State High School Boys Golf Championships at par-72 Swope Memorial Golf Course in Kansas City.
Williamson totaled 156 for his two rounds, finishing just five strokes away from earning all-state honors for finishing in the top 15.
“I was really proud of the way Grant performed at state. He was consistent both days,” Jaguars coach Casey Enright said. “We developed a game plan and he stuck with it and played within himself. He didn’t try to do to much. He kept things relatively simple and kept the big numbers off of the scorecard. Grant really came on strong toward the end of this season and I’m excited that he was able to have this experience. I think this is really going to go a long way towards establishing some confidence heading into next season.”
Lee’s Summit North senior Michael Foster also was steady, matching his first-round 82 with another Tuesday to tie for 71st with a 164 total.
North teammate Kohlin Hicks shot 84 to go with his first-round 83 to tie for 77th at 167.
Ross Steelman fired a final-round 67 to earn medalist honors at 136 and lead Columbia Rock Bridge to the team title. The Bruins shot 290 to finish with a 582 total, to top St. Louis Chaminade (605), Rockhurst (607) and Jackson (618).
