Reed improved on its first round score by a staggering 43 strokes on Tuesday in the second and final round of the DI North tournament at Somersett. But the hole was too deep.
The Raiders fired a team score of 395, the second lowest score of the day, but finished 31 strokes behind Bishop Manogue for second place and region’s final state berth.
Galena won the team title with a 760, 42 strokes clear of the Miners (802). Reed (833) finished third in front of Reno (833), McQueen (871), Spanish Springs (890), Carson (970) and Damonte Ranch (1,042).
Despite missing out on a team berth, a pair of Reed golfers qualified for state as individuals by turning in a top-5 score among golfers not on Galena or Bishop Manogue. Jayce Robinson shot an 80 on Monday at ArrowCreek and 74 on Tuesday to finish in a tie for fifth overall with a 154. Nate Daylo also qualified by carding a 161, good for 10th place tie.
Brandon Forman (166) finished in a tie for 13th, just three strokes back of a state berth. Cade Baker and Jimmy Harris both turned in two-day totals of 176 to finish in a tie for 26th.
Spanish Springs will send one golfer to state. Nick Frankoski finished with a 163 to grab the last individual state spot and was 12th overall in the 57-golfer field.
Logan Cox (170), Pat Penrod (178), Chase Martin (186) and Payne Avera (193) rounded out the Cougs’ card.
Galena’s Connor Motherway won the individual regional title with a two-day score of a 1-under, 143.
The state tournament will be played next Tuesday and Wednesday at Reflection Bay Golf Club in Las Vegas.
