LHS Spring golf looking strong

Stormy Jameson

The Lovell High School golf teams have competed in three tournaments so far this spring and appear to be continuing their successes from the fall season.
Although the Buffalo tournament scheduled for a couple weeks ago was canceled, the golfers haven’t missed a stride.
Erika Cook continues to dominate the girls side of things and will have lots of momentum going into her freshman year in Laramie for the University of Wyoming Cowgirls in the fall.
“We have about 25 golfers out this spring, which is both a challenge and a blessing,” coach Dane Robertson said. “It’s kind of crappy that I can’t get everyone into a tournament, but it’s good to continue learning the game and improving their skills to get ready for the fall season.”

On April 10, the boys and girls competed in Worland.
Cook shot a 72 to take home first by a landslide, and the only other girl, Kenley Wilson, shot 117.
For the boys, Max Cooley led the way with 84, Coby Henderson shot 91, Brandon Burns 98, Matthew Allen and Kade Green 106 each, JR Prosser 117.

The teams then traveled to Riverton on April 12.
Cook again took first place by six strokes after shooting 85 for the girls.
Madison Wolvington shot a 105 on the day. Wilson was right behind her with 118, and Madalyn McCollam finished with 128. The girls team finished fourth as a group.
On the boys side, Henderson placed the highest at eighth shooting an 82. Cooley had an 86, Burns 88, Allen 97 and James Blau 106 to land the boys team in third overall.

The teams headed to Powell on April 26 for another fun-filled day on the course.
Again, Cook cruised to victory by 14 strokes over the next closest opponent, shooting an impressive 77.
Wolvington ended with 102, McCollam 118, Kenadee Rael 120 and Wilson 123.
Their performance was good enough to take first as a team at the event.
The boys took second as a team but had some great individual outings.
Henderson led the way in second place after shooting an 80, while Cooley was right behind him in fourth with 84.
Allen ended with 90, Burns 97, Blau 101, Branton Moore 112 and Green 119.
“We’ve seen some good things from the boys squad,” Robertson said. “Coby Henderson has had a very successful spring campaign with shooting in the very low 80s on some difficult courses in terrible conditions.”
The teams will next compete in Cody this Friday, then head to Lander the following week to attempt their course on May 10.
