Individuals placing for the Lancers at these Division 1 events were as follows:
Brandon Rideout, sophomore, Wamsutter, WY – placed 1st at NJCC and 5th at McCook
Garrett Mortimer, sophomore, Erie, CO – tied for 3rd place at NJCC and was 1st at McCook
Josh Wilson, freshman, West Haven, UT – tied for 14th at NJCC and moved up with a 5th place tie at McCook

“It was nice to get started for the 13-14 season with a decent start. We have four freshmen who are very capable players and I know their scores will continue to improve as they get used to college golf. Our sophomores, Garrett Mortimer and Brandon Rideout, did a great job of setting the tone and put us on their back to pull our team through these first tournaments.” shared Coach Casey Jones. “Garrett Mortimer played very solid on a very challenging course in McCook to bring home the individual championship as well” said Coach Jones.

EWC will host their tournament in Torrington September 12-13.
