Frenship senior Logan Vargas

GRAND PRAIRIE -- Logan Vargas will finish his high school career at the Class 6A State Tournament, and he very nearly had a lot of familiar company.

The Frenship standout fired a second-round 71 to finish in a three-way tie for third place at the Region 1-6A Tournament and qualified with the best score outside the top three teams that qualified.

With Vargas and Leyton Hiebert’s team-low second-day score of 70 leading the way, the Tigers carded a 290 score as a team Thursday, which matched the lowest and allowed them to make a charge at a potential state berth. That left the Tigers in fourth place overall, though, just three strokes behind third-place Keller.

Frenship’s Hunter Welch was also stout on the final day with a 72 to place 12th overall with a 146, while Hiebert's big second day elevated him t0 16th with a 150. 

Vargas heads to Georgetown on May 10-11 for the 6A tournament at Legacy Hills Golf Club.
