East Girls Golf Starts Tournament Play Monday Morning

East Girls Golf is preparing for the state tourney Monday. Zayda Cedillo qualified for state by coming in second place at regionals in San Antonio. Cedillo signed with Stephen F Austin this past Thursday. For Zayda, this is her second time going to state. Our Don Brubaker talked to Zayda about going to state again. “It has helped a lot looking at the course. I am not going to state blind sided. At least I know what to expect. I am just going to try my best at state. I am looking forward to it,” said Cedillo.

Don also talked to Head Coach Mike Smith on what areas she has improved. “I think her short game is better than it used to be. Her chipping and putting is much more consistent. She has very few three putts and she gets up and down a lot. Those are the factors that lead to scoring in golf,” said Coach Smith.

The tournament begins Monday morning at the White Wing Golf Club in Georgetown.

Paxton Henley of Manning Gymnastics wins the 2018 USA Gymnastics Level Ten Trampoline Challenge in Colorado Springs. This was Paxton’s first elite challenge.

The No. 26 Texas A&M-Kingsville faced another win-or-go-home scenario on Saturday night at Wilder Park in the NCAA South Central Regional against No. 21/T30 Colorado School of Mines, and turned to senior Kyle Craft (Victoria, Texas) to serve as the lynchpin in a convincing 5-2 win to secure a spot for the Blue and Gold in Sunday’s regional final.

Craft went the distance and struck out a season-high 10 en route to his complete-game win, propelling the Javelinas (40-15) to the 4 p.m. CT slot on Sunday, May 20, in the South Central Regional Championship. The Orediggers (37-17) will face Colorado Mesa in the 12 p.m. CT game with the winner moving on to face TAMUK.
