Brock’s Boles, Guyon eyeing busy week ahead


Also earning spots as state alternates, with a third-place regional finish were the Peaster mixed doubles team of Reid Adams and Hannah Ford.

All classifications at the State Tournament will play quarterfinal and semifinal matches on Monday, with the finals set for Tuesday.

The Class 2A Tournament will be played Thursday and Friday at the Roy Kizer Golf Course, in Austin. Also in the 2A field, in the girls’ division, will be Millsap senior Lauren Power, a medalist in Region II competition.
