Meet the new state champs!

The Reagan High School Girls Golf team is bringing home the 6A UIL state championship! This is the first state championship in golf program history for the Rattlers.

“All 5 of our girls have worked so incredibly hard in order for us to bring home a state championship," said State Champion Golfer Victoria Patterson. "From countless hours spent on the course and leaving the course in the dark most of the time, we knew if we stayed consistent with our games there would be a good outcome. As the lone senior at the tournament, I couldn’t be more proud of how determined my younger teammates were through the two days of play, knowing how much pressure was on the table to perform. Being the underdogs in the tournament and proving what we’ve worked for the entire season is extremely rewarding and we couldn’t be more grateful for our Reagan coaches and families.”

“It's been a dream come true to bring a team championship to Reagan HS, the Reagan Community and North East ISD," said State Champion Golf Coach Rusty Aki. "We knew we had the possibility of doing something special for the last year or so, but the girls played and practiced hard every day and more importantly, wanted it for each other. Our team bond has been something we focus on every day and winning for your teammate was the top priority for all our girls in our program. It has been truly amazing to watch them grow and succeed!”
