RIVERTON – The Eastern Wyoming College Lancer Golf team recently returned from a tournament hosted by Central Wyoming College, held in Riverton.
Due to the weather, the second day of the tournament was canceled. The Lancers had a one-day total of 315, placing them second behind McCook, who finished with 310.
“The guys were anxious to play on Friday to see if we could reel McCook back in but, unfortunately the weather made the course too wet to play,” coach Zach Smith said. “I was pleased with our players because they were the first team out practicing and get ready to play Friday, even when the conditions were poor. We are excited and ready to travel to Sterling, Colo. this week for our third tournament.”
Freshman Malosi Togisala, Ogden, Utah, led the Lancers with a score of 76, which placed him tied for third. Other Lancer scores were as follows: Gonzalo Arcelay Fernadez-Meras, freshman, Munguia, Spain – 77, tied for fifth; George Elliott, freshman, Salisbury, United Kingdom – 80, tied for 10th; Kash Kaufman, freshman, Torrington – 82, tied for 15th; Trey Massey, freshman, Lander – 82, tied for 15th.
The Lancers will travel to Sterling, Colo. on September 21-22 to compete at the tournament hosted by Northeastern Junior College.
