RESERVE-It was definitely not the way that they wanted to finish the season.
After qualifying for the state golf tournament, the Riverside Academy Rebels finished in seventh place at the Division IV championships on the beautiful Links on the Bayou Golf Course in Alexandria, Louisiana.
With a team par of 576, Sterlington took home the Division IV honors with a phenomenal 616 with Loyola College Prep being named the state runners-up with a 663.
Knocking three strokes off of their team score in the second day of competition, it still was not enough for the Rebels as they finished with a team score of 701.
Andrew Loupe of Episcopal was named Division IV State Individual Champion after shooting a 64 and 70, defeating Dusty Green of Sterlington by eight strokes. Adam Pounds of Many took home third place honors individually with a 71 and 77.
For the Rebels, David Serven score of 163 for 36 holes placed him in a tie for 11th place out of 55 competitors. The cut-line for the first-team 2-A All-State squad was 162. David was honored on the second-team All-State squad.
