    Last year in the regional golf tournament, Hillary Eastridge found herself only two strokes from an automatic berth in the state tournament.

    “On the first hole, which I had parred twice in practice, I double bogeyed,” Eastridge said.

    “We had a great year last season, with good play in three tournaments and excellent play at region even though we didn’t send anyone to state,” Collins said.
