Moffat County golfer finds swing in Steamboat

John F. Russell

The Moffat County High School golf team didn't win in Steamboat Springs on Wednesday, but the team did have its share of highlights.

Most of them came off the clubs of junior Colby Haddan who led the team with a personal-best round of 81, and helped the Bulldogs tie for sixth place in the 12 team varsity field.

"It was a great day for Colby," coach Ken Harjes said after the round. "It gives him and the team some confidence as we move into an important part of the season. We've been looking for someone to step into that No. 3 slot all season, and I'm hoping that we've found him."

Steamboat Springs prep golfer Alan Capistron posted a 73 to win Wednesday's tournament. The Steamboat golfer edged Battle Mountain's Mike Jones, who shot a 74.

Haddan's round led the Bulldogs in Steamboat. Trey Jourgensen shot an 85 and Parker King struggled a bit in the rainy conditions at the Haymaker golf course, finishing at 88.

The coach is looking for King, who had led the Bulldogs for most of the season, to bounce back today on the hometown fairways of the Yampa Valley Golf Club. The Bulldogs are set to host the Moffat County Invitational.
