May 18, 2022
Wimberley HS had two golfers qualify for the 4A State Tournament, and each of them placed in the top-5. WHS sophomore Jaxon Donaldson competed first, on May 9-10 at Legends Golf Course in Kingsland. Jaxon, the 4A individual champion in 2021 as a freshman, was the leader after day one, shooting a 5-under par 67 on the par 72 course. 2021's runner-up, Gaven Lane of Argyle was three shots back. On the second day, Jaxon shot a 3-over 75, to finish with a two-day total of 142, two under par. Argyle's Lane shot a 66 on the second day to finish with a state-record setting total of 136 - eight under par. That left Jaxon with a state silver medal as he finished three shots ahead of the third place finisher. (See full results here.)
On May 16-17, WHS senior Hallie Adare competed in the girls' state tournament on the same course. Hallie opened with a 77, which was good enough to put her in a tie for seventh place heading into day two. Hallie improved her score on that second day, with a total of 75, improving her final position in the overall girls' standings to fifth place. Her two-day total of 152 was eight over par, and eight shots back of 4A champion Alexandra Hileman. (See full results here.)
