MCHS golfers grab tie at Delta Invitational

Shooting an 87 in the first day of the Delta Invitational was good enough to win Lindsey Scott her second golf tournament of the season.

The Moffat County High School senior played a solid round at Cedar Edge Golf Course except for two holes at which she doubled boogied. Scott's score, along with the performance of the other Lady 'Dogs golfers, was good enough to place the team in a two-way tie for second with Fruita.

Durango was the winner of the first day of the invitational.

"The course conditions were good and the girls played well," coach Chuck Cobb said. "It's just that tough back nine cost us some strokes."

The next golfer with the lowest score for the Lady 'Dogs was sophomore Brittany Hutton, who shot a season low 92. The score put Hutton in a tie for second place.

Senior Laura Duran fell from her usual spot as the team's second swinger by shooting a 109 at Cedar Edge and was followed closely by sophomore Lauran Stover, who shot a 110.

This was Stover's first varsity tournament in her high school career.

Cobb said, while having a golfer shoot in the 80s and another shoot in the 90s helped the team to a second-place finish, the coaches are still looking for lower scores across the board for the Lady 'Dogs.

"Seeing how much Brittany helped us by getting her score in the 90s shows how much we need three girls shooting that low," he said. "Durango, who won the tournament, didn't have any girls shoot below 90 but none were above 100."

The girls will play the second day of the invitational today at the Devils Thumb Golf Course.
