A pair of area golfers saw their high school careers come to an end Friday.
Nathan Morris of Nixon-Smiley and Matt Pohler of Shiner -- both seniors -- participated in their final high school golf tournaments as they both played in the state golf tournament Thursday and Friday in Austin.

Latimerís individual championship helped Martinís Mill finish second with a two-day collective score of 671 (336-335). Rankin won the team championship with a two-day score 665 (335-330).
In the 2A tournament, Morris shot a two-day score of 158 (79-79) and finished in a tie for 22nd place with Austin Chambers of Troup. The individual champion was Jake Blenden of Crawford, who shot a two-day even-par score of 142 (71-71).
