Austin Swings into Third
As the only individual to qualify for State golf from Rose Hill, junior Peyton Austin went to Wamego supported by his teammates on a rainy day. The Rockets have qualified for State as a team the past two years, with Austin making the trip both times. The meet was rainy all day and caused several delays throughout. After nine holes, Austin was two strokes over par but still close to the lead. Austin slowly worked toward the lead and finished the course at a five over par 75. His score finished in a three-way tie for first place with golfers from Augusta and Larned. The three went into a two-hole championship playoff. Augusta’s Jake Becker birdied on the first hole to secure first place. Austin and Larned’s Massey both shot par to stay tied heading to the second hole. Massey shot par again in the second hole while Austin finished with a bogie and third place. Austin has had a great season and has plenty to look forward to for his senior year. The team will only lose one starting senior and should have potential to improve for next year.
