The Panther Boys golf team is off to a 2-0 start, having won their first two tournaments at Sundance and Upton.
The boys won Sundance with a score of 358, beating 2nd place Sundance by 10 strokes. At Upton they fired a 335, beating second place Sundance by 13 strokes.
The Panther boys were led by freshman Dallas Millin, in Sundance, firing an 80 and then winning a 2 hole play-off against Denton Shaw from Lusk. Taylor Worman was 3rd followed by Andrew Apodaca in 10th and Anthony Ruiz in 12th.
In Upton Senior Taylor Worman led the team firing a 75 and then losing a 3 hole play-off to Denton Shaw to finish second. Dallas Millin was 3rd followed by Anthony Ruiz in 10th and Andrew Apodaca in 11th.
Coach Allen Patz says the girls team has shown good improvement each tournament, but are faced with a daunting task. The girls team is comprised of 2 sophmores and a freshman trying to battle with older and more experienced girls from their opponents. Brielle Ball (sophmore) has led the Panthers at both tournemant firing a 120 in Sundance to finish 9th and a 118 in Upton to finish 10th. Tori Jorgenson finished with a 133 in Sundance to finish 10th and a 129 in Upton to finish 12th. Freshman Paige Zorn finished out of the top 10 in both tournaments but gained valuable experience at both.
