MCHS golfers continue similar ways

The early season for the Moffat County High School golf team is starting to sound like a broken record.

It goes something like this: “senior Evan Pressley leads while the rest of the team improves and tries to help Pressley out” and then the record skips and starts over for the next tournament.

At the Conquistador Golf Course in Cortez Thursday, Pressley led the team with a five over 78. Although complete results weren’t available, coach Ken Harjes said Pressley’s score was probably good enough for a top seven finish.

According to Harjes, senior Cody DeGuelle was able to solve the “case of the fades” that he had the previous two tournaments but struggled with putting. Still, he shot an 82, which was good enough for second on the team.

Finishing out the scoring for the team was sophomore Jared Lowther, who shot an 86. Fellow sophomore Brady Virden was two strokes behind with an 88.

“We are struggling a little with our short game right now,” Harjes said. “But I keep reminding myself that we have eight tournaments to go.”

Harjes said that the team probably ended up in the top seven of 16 teams at the tournament.

The Bulldogs finish up their Southern Colorado tour of four tournaments in five days today at the Hillcrest Golf Course in Durango.

“We were a little tired yesterday,” Harjes said. “It will be important to stay focused today and then the top five will get some rest before the next tournament on Tuesday in Delta.”
