Union Grove’s Landon Stringham won the Killeen ISD boys middle school golf championship Thursday in a tight battle with Patterson’s Tola Gormley at Stonetree Golf Club.

Stringham and Gormley both carded 51s for their nine-hole round, but Stringham won the tiebreaker.

Gormley still got a championship. His score, and a third-place 61 by teammate John Powers, helped the Cavaliers win the team title. Patterson finished with a team score of 240, 15 strokes ahead of Union Grove.

Patterson also won the girls championship, led by individual champion Alexandria Vega’s 63. She beat her teammate, Alicia Garcia, by one shot. Union Grove’s Alexandria Cabading (66) finished third.

The Lady Cavs won the team title by four shots, 270-274, over Union Grove.

Liberty Hill’s boys finished at 281. Bradley Gibson carded a 68 to lead the Lions, including a bogey on the par-3 fourth hole. Other scorers for Liberty Hill were Tristan Tardiff (69) and Jalin Pritchett and Sunti Southichak (72s).

Elena Bryan shot a 72 for the Lady Lions.
