Golf standouts Easton Reynolds and Jack King ended the year in much the same manner they dominated the 2021 golf season — near the top of the leaderboards. Reynolds took third and King ninth at the Class 2A State Tournament.

SALINA — Yates Center High’s Easton Reynolds and Jack King ended their decorated high school careers with a pair of state medals.

The duo finished the two-day Class 2A State Golf Tournament Tuesday, with Reynolds taking third overall, and King ninth.

Reynolds, who started the final round in a tie for fourth, shot a final round of 73 to finish at 8-over-par 148 for the tournament, held at the Salina Muncipal Golf Course.

King, meanwhile, carded a 78 for the second consecutive day, to finish at 156.

His score finished in a tie for sixth, but a scorecard tiebreaker relegated King to ninth.

Yates Center head coach Karl Hamm congratulated his golfers on a great season.

Yates Center’s Collin Randall also played in Monday’s opening round, but did not make the cut.

Plainville’s Parker Krob took the overall individual title. His second round of 68 made him the only golfer in the competition to break par. He finished at 1-under-par 139.

Salina’s Sacred Heart High School cruised to the team title, finishing with a two-day score of 621, 63 strokes clear of runner-up Sterling.
