For Highland Park golfers, the District 13-5A boys and girls tournaments proved to be little more than a postseason warmup.
Both HP squads will take a dozen competitors to the Region II meet beginning April 18 in Rockwall after dominating the district competition this week.
The HP boys claimed the top two spots in the team standings, with Christian Clark as the individual champion following rounds of 72-68—140 over two days at Rusted Rail Golf Course in Crandall.
Charles Nelson, a freshman, took the runner-up spot at 72-72—144, followed by Joe Stover at 77-70—147. Clark and Stover were part of the winning HP Blue quintet that finished a collective 20 strokes ahead of their Gold counterparts. Greenville was another 120 shots back in third.
