Hardin-Simmons University won its first men’s golf team title in 14 years when they held on to win the Alamo City Classic, hosted by Trinity University at the par-71, 6,699-yard Quarry Golf Club in San Antonio.
Despite an unfortunate break on No. 18 that led to a nine for The Hill School graduate from Fort Worth and HSU senior Aaron Errico that tightened the team race until teammate Luke Smith, a home-schooled junior from Montgomery, could see the one-stroke team win over the University of Dallas on the last two holes.
Errico finished with a two-day total of 153, tied for 15th overall, and the Cowboys third lowest scorer for the tournament.
Trinity’s Tucker Norris, a graduate of Plano’s Spring Creek Academy, was tied for 11th individually as the Tigers were just eight strokes off Hardin-Simmons for the men’s team title, tied with Texas Lutheran.
The ladies’ title was won with a 19-stroke advantage by Trinity University over Southwestern University.
Houston Lutheran South Academy’s Georgina Hawley, a sophomore at Trinity, was 17th among 38 golfers with a two-day total of 172.
Southwestern’s third lowest scoring golfer was Lewisville’s Emily Campbell, a fellow grad of Spring Creek Academy as Norris, as she was four strokes better than Hawley in 168 – good for a four-way tie for 12th place individually.
The ladies played the par-71, 5,884-yard course at the Quarry Golf Club.
