KSHSAA State Golf Tournaments for area teams came to a halt on Tuesday due to rain and unplayable course conditions.  Based on the rulebook, the second round of the 36-hole championship tournament is not made up and the final scores revert back to the 18-hole first round.  That move led to the Sacred Heart Knights wrapping up their 7th consecutive 2A Boys State Golf Championship.  The Knights had a score of 318 on Monday, one stroke ahead of Hoxie in second with 319.  Sacred Heart won championships from 2015-19 and have won two more in a row after the 2020 spring sports season was cancelled due to COVID.

Ashton Dowell of Hoxie was the individual state champion in 2A, shooting a 74.  Two golfers finished in the top ten for the Knights.  Luke Newell and Walker Tuttle each finished two strokes off the lead at 76 to finish in a tie for third.

In Class 1A at Hesston, Central Christian won the team championship and Freshman Rylan Kooiman of Central Christian was the individual state champion with a 76 on Monday.  From the area, Osborne's Grady Wolters finished in 7th with an 84.

In 3A State Golf at Salina, Hesston won the team title with a 319, two strokes ahead of Santa Fe Trail at 321.  Harrison Middleton of Cheney shot a 68 to win the individual title.

Bishop Miege won the 4A State Championship and Drayton Cleaver of Chanute won the individual gold with a 74 on Monday in Newton.
