NCHS golf team shows improvement during busy week

The Tiger golf team had busy week last week starting on Monday with a Tournament in Newcastle.  All 13 Tiger golfers got in the action and all made nice strides in improving their games.  Dylan Miller finished second overall with a 91 and Cole Hart got his first action of the year and tied for 3rd with a 93.  Micah Shaner continues to hover around the 100 mark with his second 100 of the season.  Tanner Carpenter and Caleb Kremers both became much more steady and shot 113 and 115 respectively.  Ben Eiden and Kade Clark also showed improvement with their swings shooting 116 and 126.  Casey Kremers and Dalton Larson worked their way around the course nicely and improve daily.  

Mackenzie Lyons won her first ever tournament with a 108.  One stroke better than Cierra Nelson from Moorcroft.  Makayla  Waldock is getting ready to blast past the 130 mark but shot just that.  Makena Engelker and Jozalyn Potter each improved by about 10 strokes from last week and are visibly improved each time they play.

On Friday the golfers left early for Sundance and came home with two 3rd place team finishes.  Mackenzie Lyons tied for 2nd with a 102 and Makayla Waldock shot the best round of her career and won her first medal for 9th place with a 116.  Makena  Engelker keeps lowering her scores and shot a 139 and Jozalyn Potter shot a 153.  Cole Hart continued his steady play with a 94 good for 4th place and Micah Shaner medaled for the first time in his career tied for 8th with a 102.  Dylan Miller shot a 104, not near as sharp as he was on Monday.  Tanner Carpenter and Ben Eiden shot career lows with scores of 110 and 113 respectively.  Rounding out the Tiger scoring were Caleb Kremers with a 120, Kade Clark with a 139, Casey Kremers with a 156, And Dalton Larson participating in a scramble.

Saturday morning took the golfers to Upton with another 3rd place team finish for the boys and a 2nd place for the girls.  The tournament only medaled 5 places so Mackenzie Lyons was the only Tiger medalist with 5th place at 109.  Makayla Waldock shot a 124, Makena Engelker shot another career low with a 135 and Joz Potter shot a 162.  In the boys division Cole Hart shot another 94 and Dylan Miller matched it.  Micah Shaner shot a 101 as he continues his effort to get his score under 100.  Ben Eiden shot a career best 109 with Caleb Kremers, Tanner Carpenter shooting 116 and 118 respectively.  Rounding out the Tiger scoring Saturday were Kade Clark with a 137, Casey Kremers with a 141 and Dalton Larson with a partial scramble score of 133.    The Tigers travel to Torrington on Friday to take part in another 3A/4A tournament.
