SHELBY, Mont. – The Lone Peak High School golf teams made strong showings at the District C state golf tournament, held at Shelby’s Marias Valley Country Club May 12-13.
The boys battled back on day two from 16 shots down after the opening round, cutting the deficit in half and finishing second to Seeley-Swan High School. Big Horn seniors Quinn, Griffin and Trevor House shot final rounds of 81, 82 and 83 respectively, and Junior Charlie Johnson shot an 86.
“Yesterday, we shot ourselves in the foot a little bit,” said Head Coach David Hardwick on May 13. “We’re disappointed we didn’t win, but we had a tough uphill battle. [We’re] thrilled to death we got second.” The Big Horn boys competed in a field of 13 teams.
Senior Tehya Braun shot a final round 90 for the Big Horn girls, Junior Katie Reid shot 105, and senior Jamie Izzo scored a 113. The LPHS girls finished second, 10 shots back from hosts Shelby High School.
“The girls played great, all of them improved from the first round,” Hardwick said, noting that class C teams can bring four golfers and use the top three scores. Lone Peak only brought three female golfers. – T.A.
