State AA Golf Day Two

Posted: Updated:

I'm Shaun Rainey here at Canyon River Golf Course in Missoula for the final round of the State AA tournament, and you couldn't ask for anything better, lots of close match ups and absolutely beautiful day.

Let's start on the boys side and your day one leader Sean Benson from Billings Senior with the nice chip on 15 and he would get a birdie but would fall off on the second nine.

Hellgate's Pat Colberg shot a 74 on day one and led the majority of the tournament on day two after he chipped in this amazing shot on 15 for an eagle.  He finished one over on the day and third overall in the tournament.

In the second group Billings West's Austin Berg and Great Falls High's Cody Babinecz were making moves.  Berg with the birdie on 8 to take the lead, and Babinecz who got into a great rhythm off the tee finished the round two under and tied with Berg so we went to a playoff.

"It was stressful because you're not used to playing a one whole playoff and now I have to go out and play more," said Cody Babinecz.

After they both par' d number one they moved to the par five number nine, Babinecz just misses his birdie putt so Berg now from three feet for the win, no doubter.

"It feels awesome, one of the best feelings I've had in a while," said Austin Berg.

On the girls side, it was all about the final group and the battle between Glacier's Teigan Avery and Billings Senior's Kortney McNeil.

Avery had the five shot lead on McNeil but the Bronc and defending champion birdied three out of four holes and quickly closed the gap.  But Avery answered and had a one shot lead heading into the final hole.  McNeil would barley miss her birdie putt and would settle for par, so Avery would have a six footer for the win and the sophomore hits it center cut for the victory.

"I just felt so relieved to be done with the round and know that I had won and that was the most nerve racking putt I think I've ever had.  No six footer could've meant more to me and it just feels good to have made that putt," said Teigan Avery.

As for the team titles Billings West would win both while Hellgate and Skyview finished two, three in boys while Butte and Hellgate finished two three in girls.
