Beaufort High’s golf team earned another shot at claiming a state title after a third-place finish a year ago when the Eagles placed second at the Class 4A Lower State qualifier on Monday at the Country Club of South Carolina in Florence.
Led by a 73 from Jack Lubkin and a 75 from Jerry Bruns, the Eagles carded a team score of 302, finishing just behind champion North Augusta (291). Hilton Head High (316) and May River (321) finished fourth and fifth to earn their spots in the state meet, and Bluffton’s Jones Saylor carded a 73 to qualify as an individual.
Lubkin’s 73 was good enough to tie for fourth overall while Bruns tied for 10th, and Simon McAlister and Jack Sumner each shot 77 to round out a solid team showing for Beaufort.
The state meet will be played Monday and Tuesday at Forest Lake Country Club in Columbia.
