Facing an uphill battle after day one, Meagan Winans left it all on the course in her final round for Plano East golf.
At the UIL 6A State Championships at the Legacy Hills Golf Club in Georgetown on Monday and Tuesday, Winans battled some of the top golfers in the state and finished in second place overall with a 144. The top golfer in the classification, Ryann Honea of San Angelo Central, finished first by shooting a 143 over the two rounds.
After day one of the event, Winans was back in 11th place as she shot a 3-over score of 75 in the first round. Needing to bounce back six strokes from the lead, she came out firing on day two. Winans ended Tuesday with the best round of the day among the competitors, shooting a 3-under par score of 69 to pull within a stroke of the leader. The final medalist — Mimi Burton of Austin Vandergrift — shot a 145 and won a playoff to claim the final medal of the event.
Winans finishes her four years at Plano East with the medal from the state championship, and she is now heading to play golf at the University of Oklahoma next season.
