Surrounded by family, coaches and friends Carroll scripted her name on the dotted line with plans to continue her golf career at Harding, A trio of Bulldog golfers competed last week at the UIL Regional meet in Corpus Christi and Burnet's program was very well represented. Bulldog ath- letes Taylor Carroll, Tayden Quails and Jess Luther each earned a spot at regionals after solid district rounds and all three shot impressive rounds. "They all did a fantastic job playing in extremely windy con- ditions on day one to post good scores," said head golf coach Roy Kiser. On the opening day Carroll shot a 78, Quails posted an 85, and Luther finished with an 83. Their success rolled over into day two as well. Carroll posted a round of 81 on day two for a 159 regional total. That was the best individual medalist score of the tournament and the fourth best female score overall. Her 159 earned her a spot at the upcoming state tournament which will be held in Austin on April 25-26. "She was really impressive with her drives and approach shots and made a beautiful 15 foot putt on the 18 green to earn her final position," said Kiser. Quails shot a day two round of 75 to finish with a 160 overall score. Luther shot a 78 and totaled a 161 regional finish. "Tayden and Jess played solid golf especially on day two with impressive scores and some of the best golf that I have ever seen them play. They finished their season with motivation to return to Corpus," said Kiser.
