ABILENE â€” The Garden City High School girls' golf team is in the hunt for a spot in the state high school tournament, but it has some catching up to do.
The Lady Bearkats shot a team total 382, good enough for third place, during first-day action at the Region II-1A golf tournament Monday. That score leaves Garden City 18 strokes behind Robert Lee.

Survivors wanted! Thatâ€™s the word from the Howard/Glasscock Relay For Life tri-chairwomen of the Survivor Committee, which lists and provides for anyone who has had cancer.
â€śAfter all, this is about the people who have survived cancer and are celebrating more birthdays,â€ť affirmed Bonnie Miller, Koila Strickland, and Debbye ValVerde.
â€śWe sent out a mailing that incorrectly stated the deadline to register to get a purple shirt, â€ś said Strickland, â€śbut the fact is we will take survivorsâ€™ names even at the Relay.â€ť
