Golf’s First Weekend
Tournaments are in Cody, Laramie, Riverton, Sundance, Moorcroft, and Wheatland for the first competitions on the course.
At Cody, Danny Davis and Sydney Gunn were individual champs.
At Riverton, there were two defending state champions competing on the boys’ side. They would finish 2nd and 3rd. Riverton Freshman Easton Paxton carded a two day 141 and won first. Kelly Walsh’s Nathan Green, last year’s 4A champion was 2nd at a 146. Pinedale Sophomore Jordan Costello was third at 147. Kelly Walsh’s Amanda Hinchy, the 4A girl’s defending state champion, won first with a 157. Teamwise, The Riverton boys and Natrona girls were champions.
There were only a handful of teams at the Moorcroft invite due to school conflicts. Lusk won both individual crowns with Denton Shaw on the boy’s side and Kaci Jo Skrukrud.
At Wheatland, Chase Cochran won on his home course shooting a two day 157. For the girls, Hannah Smylie of Douglas won with a 195.
At Laramie, they were scheduled to play 36 holes in a one day event. They played match play in the morning, but still kept strokes during the 18 holes. They then got rained/thundered/lighteninged out in the afternoon. The boys didn’t complete their 27 holes so their scores reflect the first 18.
