EWC starts spring season in Lamar with 2nd place finish
The Eastern Wyoming College Lancer golf team kicked off the spring season with a 2 day tournament in Lamar, CO. The second day of the tournament was called after 9 holes because of rain. The Lancers finished in 2nd place with a score of 449. McCook Community College won the tournament with a score of 436.
“McCook played very well at our first tournament of the season and our guys didn’t play as well as they had hoped,” said Coach Zach Smith. “Harry, George, and Gonzalo were all able to place in the top ten to keep earning points toward regional honors. It looks like we might have some of the same weather challenges this week in McCook so we need to be ready for whatever is thrown our way.”
Leading the Lancers was sophomore Harry Walch, Staines, England, who tied for third with scores of 71, and 38 for a total of 109. Other Lancer scores were as follows:
George Elliott, sophomore, Salisbury, England, 75, 35 – 110, tied 5th
Gonzalo Arcelay, sophomore, Munguia, Spain, 76, 37 – 113, 8th
RJ Moya, freshman, Three Rivers, TX, 69, 45 – 114, tied 9th
Jo Vin Tan, freshman, Taiping, Malaysia, 78, 39 – 117, 13th
The Lancers will play the McCook Community College tournament March 28-29.
