San Benito Invitational tees off

HARLINGEN — Clear-blue skies welcomed 115 golfers to day one of the San Benito Invitational Golf Tournament Friday morning at Tony Butler Golf Course.

Fifteen schools from across the Rio GrandeValley got a chance to sample a taste of what’s in store for the District 32-6A tournament, which will be held two months from now at the same course on April 4-5.

“We have two more tournaments, besides this one, coming up before district,” said Los Fresnos head coach Luis Gonzalez. “We wanted to give them a shot to look at this course and hopefully in another month we’ll give them another shot because district (tournament) is another two months away.

“So for now we’re just trying to get the kids ready, practicing out here to take advantage of the course.”
