"It's kind of a bittersweet feeling," said Fair. "I am happy I qualified, but I really want the team to get the opportunity to compete a state."
Logan-Rogersville won the team event recording a 334. Bolivar finished second with a 347. Monett took third finishing with a 334, and Nevada was fourth carding a 375.
Only the top two teams and the top 12 individuals from the four sectionals advance to the state tournament at River Cut Golf Course in Springfield May 14 and 15.
"I am extremely happy for Jacob," said Monett coach Derrek Uhl. "He always has high expectations for himself and his teammates. I think the key for Jacob at state is that he plays his game and enjoys the experience."
Last year, Fair earned a second place finish at the state tournament. This year, he has his sights set on the title.
"I know what I am capable of when I work hard," said Fair. "I have to play within myself and take the state tourney one stroke at a time."
Results for the Monett team are as follows: Travis Thompson, 87; Garrett Craig, 87; Tyler Webb, 104; and Bryan Beckwith, 109.
The Cassville Wildcats sent two golfers to the sectional round. Evan White advanced to the state tournament with an eight-over-par 80. White's teammate Parker Skinner finished with an 89.
