PINEHURST, N.C. — Cristian Ontiveros, a recent graduate of Marfa High School, competed in an invite-only boys invitational golf tournament recently put on by the National High School Golf Association.
The three-day tournament took place from July 11-13 at Pinehurst Resort in Pinehurst, North Carolina, and included some of the top high school golfers across the country. Ontiveros, who placed 2nd overall in a UIL State Golf Tournament earlier this May, finished in the T223 category.
Ontiveros competed in three-day competitions in which he scored an 87, 83 and 86 for a cumulative score of 256. A community fundraiser was held earlier this month at the Marfa Municipal Golfcourse to send Ontiveros to the out-of-state tournament.
