SHERIDAN — Sheridan’s Kamrin Allen shot a 67 Tuesday to help the University of Wyoming golf team start the year with a win.
It was his first individual championship as a Cowboy. His total 210 (-6) after the 67 (-5) Tuesday helped the Cowboys in their 857 (-7) winning team score that overtook on Tuesday Utah Valley’s final 862 (-2). In the process, the Cowboy golf team defended their Battle in the Tetons title at Headwaters Golf Club in Victor, Idaho. Their tournament-low 277 (-11) third round score won them the eight-team event. According to Wyoming Athletics, this is the first time since 1998-1999 that the Cowboys have won a tournament two straight years.
“Kamrin is a great young player and was feeling really good about his action and his game the last two rounds,” head coach Joe Jensen told Wyoming Athletics.
Sheridan’s Cameron Lindell, who joined the Cowboys this fall after two years golfing at Tyler Junior College in Texas, shot a 70 (-2) Tuesday, in 14th-place at 220 (+4) and second out of Cowboy golfers.
Sheridan JV golf
SHERIDAN — The Sheridan junior varsity golfers played through a one-day event yesterday in Sheridan. Coach Sandy Michelena said that they were proud of the golfers — many of whom had never golfed or walked a full 18 holes before.
Gillette and Buffalo junior varsity squads came to Kendrick Golf Course for the event, but no team scores were kept. Sheridan had 14 golfers play, including two freshman girls.
“Our kids did really good,” Michelena said. “We were really pleased with their efforts.”
Scores: Caleb Morel 95; Dillon Jensen 101; Brent Miller a 100; Tristan Mellinger 101; Andrew Windsor 102. Girls (9 holes): Abbie Ressler 104; and Schylar Wallace 106.
