Moffat County High School girls golf team finishes 3rd

Competing for the first time in almost a year, Moffat County High School senior golfer Heather Nicholson said everything went as well as she had hoped.

Golfing Monday at Bookcliff Golf Course in Grand Junction, Nicholson shot an 88 to lead Class 4A, as the MCHS girls golf team placed third overall.

“I was hoping to break 90,” she said. “I shot nothing higher than a six on any hole — it was definitely a positive way to start.”

Among Class 4A and 5A schools, MCHS finished third as a team among the 11 schools, and Nicholson finished third, too, six strokes behind the leader.

Other MCHS golfers also played well.

Juniors Nike Cleverly shot

103 and Callie Papoulas shot 112. Freshman Makayla Cam­illetti shot 119 in her varsity debut and sophomore Sam Fox shot 138 on the par 71 course.

Coach Ann Marie Roberts said she was pleased with the way her team performed.

“You would like to win,” she said. “But the girls played well today.”

Roberts said each golfer looked sharp in the first tournament of the year.

“Makayla, in her first tournament, shot a 119,” she said. “It’s nerve-wracking. Nike played really well, and she is only going to get better.

“Callie was driving the ball really well.”

The team will next play at 9 a.m. April 7 in Delta.

On March 17, MCHS was able to travel to Rifle to practice, but Nicholson said being outside and competing was a perfect way to start her season.

“It was fun,” she said. “It was nice outside, and I’m happy with how I played.

“I was able to relax out there and keep my mind set.”
