Gardner Edgerton High School sophomore Trystan Tovkach carded an 81 at a golf tourney last week in Regional action at Alvamar in Lawrence. The score was enough to qualify the sophomore for state.
Tovkach shot a 42 on the front nine, but turned it around with a 39 on the back nine to card an 81.
Tied for fourth, Tovkach survived a sudden death playoff to advance to state. He won fourth with a bogey on hole 10.
GEHS Golf Coach Chris Lutz said he was proud of Tovkach’s play.
“I’m looking forward to his effort at state,” Lutz said.
