Airline sophomore Carter Jurkovich finished tied for sixth in the Region I, Division I golf tournament Tuesday at Links of the Bayou in Alexandria.
Jurkovich shot a 3-over-par 75 that included a two-stroke penalty for grounding his club in a hazard. West Monroe’s Joey Kirkland won with a 70.
Airline did not qualify for the state tournament as a team, but Jurkovich was one of four individuals to qualify.
Three-time defending Division I champion Byrd won with a 300, strokes better than runner-up Barbe.
The Division I state tournament is Monday and Tuesday at Farm D’Allie in Carencro.
