August 18, 2021 by Andy Morales, AZPreps365
Sabino junior standout Jake Myre shot a 1-under-par 35 to lead the Sabercats (162) to victory over Rincon/University (191) and Sahuaro (285) Wednesday at Randolph North. Sabino took tenth at the Division II state playoffs last year with Myre coming in 21st to lead the Sabercats.
Myre lost a shot on the fourth hole (par 4) Wednesday but he drew even on the seventh (par 4) and he picked up a birdie on the ninth (par 5) for the three stroke lead over his teammate Jackson Rustand who shot an eagle on his last hole to get past Damian Quijada of Rincon/UHS 38 to 39.
The Rangers compete in Division I and the Cougars compete in D-II with Sabino. Sahuaro junior Austin Dillon led his team with a 59 on the front nine.
