Craig sports briefs for Sept. 13: Final tournament for MCHS golf is Friday

Craig Daily Press Staff Report

— The Moffat County High School boys golf team attends its final tournament of the year Friday when it heads to Cedar Ridges Golf Course in Rangely.

The Bulldogs will bring the entire varsity and JV teams to Cedar Ridges and play the nine-hole course twice. It is less of a competitive tournament than many of the others Moffat County has played in this season and more of an opportunity to enjoy another round of golf after the hard work put in this season, coach Casey Kilpatrick said.

It will be the last round of the season for JV golfers. Afterward, Kilpatrick will select the team’s top four to play at the regional tournament at Gypsum Creek Golf Course in Gypsum.

Regionals begin Tuesday.
