Buena standout senior Jacob McCorkle shot a 5-over-par 40 at the Dell Urich Golf Course on Tuesday to help lead the Colts past Rincon/University 193 to 209. Both squads compete in Division I this year along with Cienega, Desert View, Marana, Sunnyside and Tucson.

Only the top 12 teams in the state, and the next unattached 18 individuals, will qualify for the state tournament to be he held at the Omni Tucson National from Oct. 28-29 and that’s a difficult task with the vast majority of the D-I programs located in the Phoenix area. Last year, only Daniel Henely (9th place) and Diego Guerrero (48) of Cienega and Isaac Ruiz (41) of Buena qualified from Southern Arizona as individuals. No teams qualified.

Rincon/UHS standout Joseph Hubbard led the Rangers with a 43. The Rangers host Sunnyside at Dell Urich today and Salpointe visits the Pueblo del Sol Golf Course in Sierra Vista to play Buena.

Salpointe, Walden Grove and Desert View played at Randolph North on Tuesday. No official scores have been posted.
