Moffat County girls golf takes 3rd and 4th in two tournaments this week
The Moffat County girls golf team, back to full strength after the winter sports season finally came to an end, continued its good play Wednesday.
The Bulldogs played in a four-person scramble format at Devil’s Thumb Golf Course in Delta, taking third and fourth place out of the seven teams there.
Katelyn Peroulis, now with the team full-time after the basketball season concluded, helped Shianna Dockins, Alex Bulla and Caitlin Harjes shoot 81 on the day. Lexi Gonzales and Brittany Corey teamed up with two players from Delta to shoot 82 and take fourth.
On Thursday, the team played its first individual rounds of the season in a tournament hosted by Montrose High School at Black Canyon Golf Course. Harjes and Peroulis led the way, shooting 95 and 109, respectively.
Moffat County did not place at the tournament because Dockins and Bulla struggled, head coach Ann Marie Roberts said, but she added it’s understandable given the limited amount of practice they’ve had to date.
“Those other two didn’t play so well, but I was pleased,” Roberts said. “We’ve been in a gym so far, so it’s tough. They could have, just with putting (eliminated several strokes). We haven’t really gotten to practice that yet.”
In addition, Corey and Gonzales played the first individual rounds of their careers for Moffat County, and Roberts said they played well given those circumstances.
The Bulldogs still are waiting to get outdoors and practice on grass in Craig. This spring, they have had to work on chipping almost exclusively indoors.
They may be able to get outside before the next event. The tournament scheduled for Tuesday at Adobe Creek National Golf Course has been canceled, meaning the Bulldogs will be back on the links March 25 at Cobble Creek Golf Course in Montrose.

Sharing thanks, enjoying some laughs, and shedding a few tears are an indicator of the emotional levels that always seem to come with Moffat County High School graduation.
