Niobrara County golf team has busy week

SUNDANCE – After a three-week delay to their spring golf season due to weather cancelations, the Niobrara County Tiger golf team has been busy making up for lost time over the past couple weeks. 

On Friday, April 30, the Tiger’s traveled to Wright to compete on the Hay Creek Golf Course. The Tiger’s lone boy Camden Rose fired a 104. On the girl’s side, Joz Potter led the way with a 106 for fourth place.   She was followed by Sierra Eaton’s 120, Abby Kottwitz’s 126, Phoebe Albright’s 131, Lily Krueger’s 135, and Evelyn DesEnfant’s 160.

On Saturday, just three members were able to travel to Sundance.   Camden Rose improved and posted a 102 for 3rd place.  Phoebe Albright shot a 110 and Evelyn DesEnfants continued to improve shooting a 139.  The Tiger’s then travelled to Hulett on Monday to play the Devil’s Tower Golf Course.  On the boy’s side Camden Rose shot a 117.  The girls were led by Joz Potter’s 101 which earned her 5th place behind four 4A golfers.  Phoebe Albright shot a 107, followed by Abby Kottwitz’s 119, Sierra Eaton’s 126, and Lily Krueger’s 133. 

The Tiger’s busy couple weeks culminated in Torrington on Friday, May 7. Due to some harsh winter conditions that left the Lusk golf course unfit for tournament play the Tiger’s hosted 2A teams at Cottonwood Golf Course in Torrington. 

Camden Rose shot a 114 to finish just out of the top 10.  Freshman Phoebe Albright led the girl’s team with a 112 that earned her a fifth-place finish. Joz Potter’s 114 put her in sixth place.  Abby Kottwitz was close behind with a 117, followed by Sierra Eaton’s 126, Lily Krueger’s 135, and Evelyn DesEnfant’s 144. 

The Tiger golf teams will conclude their spring season with the spring championships scheduled for May 14-15 at the Cheyenne Country Club in Cheyenne.
