Moffat County High School athletes had a tough day on the links this past Thursday when both the varsity and JV boys golf teams competed at Rifle Creek Golf Course.

The wet weather affected play all around, as the Bulldogs shot a team total of 292, consisting of Mike Bingham’s 85, Shandon Hadley’s 103 and Eddie Smercina’s 104.

Silas Canto took a 109 and Kasen Brennise a 115 for the remainder of varsity totals.

A 10-stroke rule on holes led to no-scores for several JV players, while Torin Reed and Colton Hinkemeyer finished 100 and 106, respectively.

Coach Justin Folley said he expects a better couple rounds this week closer to home, with the team traveling to Steamboat Springs’ Haymaker Golf Course this Thursday and hosting their home tournament Friday at Yampa Valley Golf Course.
