Andrews girls golf continues tradition marking a brick in Luckenbach

ANDREWS, TX (KWES) - In 2007, the Andrews girls golf team started a unique tradition to represent their state championships on a brick in Luckenbach. For the three seniors, this was their last opportunity leave their mark.

"We go to Luckenbach and we get a stone. We have all of our state championships in a little corner with all of our years and names on it. So Luckenbach has a mark of us for sure," said Macy Schulze.

"It just reminds you that you made a mark on Andrews history," said Rachel Huffman.

While the seniors have done it before and did it for the last time, the two juniors have finally stamped their names in history.

"It was awesome. I've always wanted to do that. I feel honored because we have such a great program here at Andrews High School and I'm just really blessed and honored," said Skyler Strube.

"You go there and see all the bricks and years passed. It was cool to do that. It feels really good because my sister kind of started it off for me. She was on varsity all four years of high school, so now I'm kind of falling in her footsteps so that's awesome," said Paige Jennings.

The Lady Mustangs kept the streak going and brought home the 16th title in program history. There was mixed emotions for the seniors when they celebrated on the green for the last time.

"It was bittersweet because it was our last one. Last time to ever storm the green on 18," said McCkinzee Mcallister.

"Definitely bittersweet. This was our last time for everything," said Schulze.

The team has seven juniors returning, including Skyler and Paige. The duo already knows their goal for next season.

"Preparation and dedication really because we have our younger girls. We are going to work hard and we are going to strive," said Strube.

The two looks to be leaders next year on the team and come home with their ninth victory.
