  • District déjà vu - Cardinal...

    Robert Gallegos sank a 20-foot putt from the edge of the green on his fourth shot on Hole No. 1, then waited — all calm on the outside at least — as opponent Jason Parker tried from a similar distance several feet away.

    Parker’s putt rolled just short, and for the second year in a row, Gallegos — a Robertson High junior — captured the District 2 boys’ golf championship.

    For the second year in a row, he did it by hitting a clutch shot to win a playoff.
