CANTON — The Rockwall A girls golf team carded the best district team scores in school history to claim the District 12-5A championship at Twin Lakes Golf Course in Canton Tuesday and Wednesday.

The team of Stephanie Hwang, Jordan Rose, Tori Shupp, Kristen Tucker and Laura Packer chalked up a 2-day team score of 653 to defeat second-place Tyler Lee by 104 strokes.

The district title made it 2-in-a-row for Rockwall after finishing in the runnerup position in 2003 and 2004.

All five members of Rockwall A finished in the top-10 individual standings, with Hwang claiming second place (74-78), Rose fourth (78-76), Shupp fifth (85-87), Tucker sixth (93-82) and Packer ninth (98-93).

Rockwall's B team of Samantha Kirk (92-98), Kim Heuer (94-96), Katy Krikorian (112-101), Brooke Buchanan (103-101) and Annette Martinez (104-114) booked a 2-day 789 to finish in third place.

Only the top two teams advance to the Region II tournament April 24-26 at Cottonwood Creek Golf Course in Waco.

Rockwall B team members Kirk and Heuer tied for seventh place in the individual standings and Rockwall medalist Jewell Malick grabbed 10th with her 2-day total 193 (100-93).

The top-10 individual finishers earned all-district honors.

Tyler Lee's Kelsey Kipp shot a 144 (74-70) to defeat Hwang for low individual and Lee freshman Katelyn Sepmoree edged Rockwall senior and University of North Texas recruit Rose 153-154 for third.

Tucker's second day 82 tied her personal best, Heuer's first day 94 was a new personal record, Malick's second day 93 was a new personal record and freshman medalist Brett Glover recorded a new personal best 97 in round two.

"I am thrilled with how the girls have progressed this year, both in their golf game and in their team unity," said head golf coach Matt Claborn.
