Consider the Plant boys golf team nicely tuned up -- and jacked up -- for Monday's Class 2A, District 10 tournament.

On the same course -- the Temple Terrace Golf and Country Club -- where they will attempt to win their sixth consecutive district team title in four days, the Panthers edged Jesuit by a stroke and district foe King by nine in a highly anticipated four-team match Thursday afternoon. 

Sophomore Brad White's 3-over-par 39 on the front nine led the Panthers (13-4), who finished with a four-player total of 161. Freshman Ryan Gendron, typically the Panthers' No. 6 player, turned in a 41.

Jesuit (12-2), which dropped its first match of 2010 to Berkeley Prep on Wednesday, was led by senior Anthony Maccaglia's 37 and senior Brian Lanoue's 39. Jesuit will duel with Berkeley again in Monday's 1A, District 14 tournament at Cheval.

Junior Tyler Weed's 41 led King, which finished 16 strokes ahead of fourth-place Tampa Catholic.
