SHERIDAN — Just six shots behind the first-place finisher Saturday, Kaleigh Anderson of Big Horn placed second at the Lusk golf invitational with a 98.
On a windy day with a field of seven, the Big Horn boys placed third with a 403 and the girls were one stroke away from second with a 343. Tongue River boys placed fourth with a 472.
Along with Anderson, teammate Jamie Kitterman helped her team, placing sixth with a 105.
Jack Roberts lead the boys, taking ninth place with a 93.
“The team did great,” Big Horn golf coach Mila Stender said. “We are on a upward curve going into conference.”
Matt Sharp a freshman from Tongue River had his first experience on a golf course with a 116 — the best out of all the Tongue River boys.
“The course was in great shape,” Tongue River golf coach Pete Kilbride said. “With water on 12 of the holes the kids struggled to stay dry. It was a great tournament heading into conference.”
Big Horn and Tongue River will join Sheridan this weekend in Evanston for conference.
Sheridan will get one last tournament in before conference, playing Wednesday at Buffalo.
