Craig Sports Briefs for March 6, 2013: Moffat County girls golf has strong start
Craig — Moffat County High School’s girls golf team kicked off its season on a positive note Monday.
The Bulldogs played at Chipetta Golf Course in Grand Junction and took second out of 11 teams at the tournament hosted by Palisade.
The tournament featured a team scramble format, with the Bulldogs shooting a 67 on the day. Aspen was first with a 65. All players dealt with strong winds and less-than-ideal temperatures for golfing, Moffat County head coach Ann-Marie Roberts said.
While most teams at the tournament had four members on their scramble team, the Bulldogs got by with three. Shianna Dockins, Alex Bulla and Caitlin Harjes carried the load for the Bulldogs in the first tournament of the season.
The team is scheduled to play March 13 at Devil’s Thumb Golf Course in Delta.

New school record, outdone expectations at state mark bright future for Moffat County track and field
