This week’s Class 5A state golf championship at Morris Williams was filled with noteworthy news, much of which could not fit into our regular coverage. So, here is a look back of some of items you may have missed:
- Lake Travis became the 15th school to sweep the boys and girls titles in the same year. It’s only the seventh time it has happened in Class 5A, or 4A when that was the state’s highest division, and the Cavs did it in their first year in 5A. The others were Westlake (2010), The Woodlands (2002), San Antonio Churchill (1998 and 1999), and Stafford Dulles (1981 and 1982).
- It’s difficult to imagine anyone ending their high school career in a better way than Lake Travis senior Klein Klotz. He shot 70-69 — 139 to help the Cavs to the team title, then prevailed in a three-man playoff for second place by making a hole in one on the 191-yard 12th hole, the third hole of the playoff.
- Klotz was one of four seniors on the Lake Travis boys championship squad, joining Dillon Van Essen, Jake Ezell and Joey Hearn. Junior Andrew Liu completed the lineup. Ezell was a big reason for the Cavs’ victory. After an opening round 80 he fired a 6-under 66 in the final round.
