Lonoke senior Ryan Robinson shot a career-low four-under-par 68 to earn medalist honors in a match against Heber Springs at Tannenbaum recently.
“I said earlier he has all the shots he needs,” Jackrabbit coach LouAnn Howell said Sunday. “He can hit everything he needs to hit. He just has to play smart.
“That was the first time he played as well mentally as he played physically.”
In other recent competition, Robinson and Will Armstrong shot 39 over nine holes at Rolling Hills last week against Cabot, Hazen and Little Rock Central, and Armstrong shot 38 and Robinson 41 Thursday at Hazen.
“That was kind of a letdown for Ryan, but that’s golf,” Howell said. “And you’d rather have that now than at the district tournament.”
The Jackrabbits were scheduled to play at DeWitt on Monday. They’ll have the rest of the week off before resuming competition following the Labor Day weekend in preparation for the 2-4A District Tournament Sept. 18-19.
With just Robinson and Armstrong on the roster, the Jackrabbits don’t have enough players to compete as a team, but Robinson and Armstrong will attempt to qualify at district for the Class 4A State Tournament as individuals. The low four scores not on one of the two qualifying teams will advance.
