    ANAHUAC — Rainy, chilly, windy weather Wednesday made scoring difficult, but didn’t prevent from day one leaders — the Port Neches-Groves boys and the Nederland girls — from repeating as District 20-4A champions at Chambers County Golf Club.

    For the PN-G boys, it was a  fifth consecutive title. Junior Braden Bailey led the way for the Indians who pulled away from Nederland despite a final round total of 317 that was seven strokes higher than Tuesday. PN-G posted a 36-hole team total of 627.

    The Indians finished 15 shots ahead of Nederland, which added a closing 329 to Tuesday’s 313 for 642.

    Nederland’s girls claimed their second straight championship, by maintaining their opening-round nine-shot lead over PN-G. Both schools trimmed two shots off their opening 18-hole totals, with Nederland shooting 362 for 626 and PN-G firing 362 for 635.

    Bailey, meanwhile, was winning his third consecutive medalist trophy with a 73 for a one-over-par total of 145. That left him nine shots clear of Nederland’s Michael Glover, who carded a 76-154 to finish as the 20-4A runner-up for the second consecutive year.

    Both PN-G and Nederland teams advance to the April 14-15 Region III-4A championships at River Ridge in Sealy. Also punching a ticket to regional on the boys side as individuals were Lumberton’s Jeff Rountree and Lumberton’s Cameron Kennan. Two LC-M girls — medalist Lauren Cox (75-153) and sixth-place Casey Nichols (86-198) — are also headed to regionals.

    Rountree (79-156) tied PN-G’s Brandon Soileau for third, while Kennon (83-162) was sixth. Anyone in the top six not on a team that advanced gets to play at regional.

    In addition to Bailey, PN-G got a 78-156 from Soileau, an 82-159 from Tyler Rawson and 84-167 from both Cameron Keith and Bradley Stone. Backing Glover for Nederland were Hunter Huff 78-158, Thaine Tillie 86-163 and Cole Trevino 88-168.

    Nederland’s girls scores after Leatherwood were 88-178 from Reid Whaley, 92-183 from Reagan Bodin and 92-188 from Deanna Rich. PN-G was leaded by by freshman Karlei Hemler’s, who was second medalist with an 83-169. Breanna Bailey added an 85-176, Railie Guidry a 95-187 and Oxy Benites a 99-203. — BOB WEST
