After shooting a 77 on Friday and a 75 on Saturday, junior Aysis Azarcon ranked first at a two-day invitational tournament held at the Rockwall Golf and Athletic Club.

“Winning anything, especially for your own school, is amazing,” she said

Azarcon played individually against players from Highland Park, Rockwall and Texas High.

“She’s well taught and determined to get better,” junior Wyatt Stephens said. “It’s a very good opportunity because it shows that Timberview is good.”

Coach Lindsay Matthews said she placed Azarcon in the tournament in order for her to gain more experience on the course where regionals will be held.

“It was a highly competitive field,” she said. “We want to play against the people that we know are going to be playing in our district.”

To prepare for tournaments, Azarcon goes to the course with her team and individually.

“She practices a lot,” Matthews said. “There’s a certain number of hours we practice in a given week and she (goes) well beyond that.”

Matthews said that Azarcon’s skills have improved since she began playing for the school.

“When she first came into the program she was consistently shooting mid 80s and now she’s shooting mid 70s,” she said.

Azarcon’s goal is to make advance again.

“I have a lot more experience mentally and physically,” she said. “Even if I make it to top five that would be really great.”

Matthews said Azarcon has a really good shot at going to state.

“We know she can shoot what she needs to,” she said. “For Aysis, it’s going to be the mental game, making sure she stays strong and smart on the course.”

Azarcon is the first girl in 10 years to represent the school in these tournaments.

“(Seeing her compete) has encouraged other golfers to try out (when they) normally wouldn’t,” Matthews said. “They see that it takes a lot of work and so hopefully they start now and build up those skills.”

Azarcon is a member of the Student Athletic Leadership Council.

“It’s a really good thing to represent golf, especially at a small golf school like us,” Azarcon said. “It’s saying that anyone can come from anywhere and be at the top.”
