Yates shoots 78 at state
Tonganoxie High freshman golfer Colby Yates finished 14th at the state tournament in El Dorado on Tuesday.
The Chieftains’ only representative shot a 78 at Prairie Trails Country Club, tallying 39 strokes on both the front and back nine.
THS coach Jared Jackson said Yates was close to a top-five finish (the top four scores were 67, 74, 75 and 76).
“Colby was solid all day off the tee and if a few more putts would have went, he had a chance at top five,” Jackson said. “He was only three strokes from third.”
Andover won the Class 4A team title at El Dorado.
