Garcia sisters prepare for district tennis

By Coach Lonnie Flippen

The Garcia sisters, Jaci a senior, and Jessie a junior, were the two medallists at the 2017 Marfa Shorthorn’s Invitational Golf Tournament held at the Marfa Golf Course on Monday, March 20.

Jaci shot a 114 which was eight strokes better than her first outing three weeks ago and brought home the gold medal with her effort.

Jessie shot a 123 in her first outing of the year. Jessie has just been released to compete after suffering a severe concussion in November. Jessie represented Valentine as a regional qualifier in golf in 2016 and Jaci was the alternate from the district last year.

The two young ladies will continue to prepare for the district tournament which will be held in Marfa on April 5 with regional competition to follow in San Angelo later in April.
