The Eastern Wyoming College Lancer golf team recently returned from LaJunta, CO where they competed in the Otero Junior College spring golf tournament.  The Lancers finished second at the one-day tournament with a team score of 317 behind Otero College who scored 314.  The second day of the tournament was canceled due to the weather.

“The event was shortened to one tough day because of the inclement weather.  It was gusting up to 60 mph on Thursday with even more wind and rain on Friday,” shared Coach Zach Smith.  “The guys battled through the wind and managed to come away with second place.  We are looking forward to the next tournament and hopefully bringing home a Lancer team and individual win.”
