SHERIDAN — Great weather and some good golf for the Lady Rams.
Tongue River is hosting this year’s 2A conference golf tournament at Kendrick Municipal Golf Course, and Thursday was a perfect day for home teams Big Horn and Tongue River after cold wet spring weather had ravaged their 2013 golf seasons.
“The weather was beautiful and the course was in great shape for the first day of the tournament,” TR head coach Pete Kilbride said.
Wyatt Main had the top score for the Eagles, an 86, and he sits in eighth place overall. Casey Caywood and Wyatt Schumacher shot 92 and 93, respectively.
The boys are sitting in fifth place with a score of 382. Thermopolis leads after one day with their 336, followed by Sundance-Hulett, 358; Moorcroft, 360; and Lusk, 372. Big Horn (410) is in eighth.
“We’ll need to shoot in the 360 range to move into the top three or four,” Kilbride said. “They did it earlier this year, so they know they can do it. I want them to come out and today and end the season playing their best round of the year.”
The Big Horn girls are tied with Lusk at the top after each squad shot a first-day 294.
Alex Eisele and Taylor Nance shot 97s (tied for fifth) and Kaleigh Anderson shot a 100 (seventh). The three were not far off Amy Bergstram of Lusk’s top first-day girls score of 92. Amber Huseth (Wright) and Lauren Hinkey (Lovell) shot 93s, and Mikalyn Anderson (Wright) shot a 95.
The Big Horn boys were paced by Jack Roberts’ 92.
Final day tournament action kicks off Friday morning at 8:30 a.m.
