EWC wins Lamar tournament
The Eastern Wyoming College Lancer golf team competed in the Lamar Community College tournament April 1-2 where the Lancers won the tournament with a score of 574. McCook Community College was second with a score of 590.
“Brendan played insanely well on Thursday. It’s fun to hear the stories that start floating around the course when someone is playing lights out, I’m glad it was one of our guys and it was true,” said Coach Zach Smith. “It was good to see him finish strong and -7 for the tournament. The top 5 were comprised of all freshmen, so it was great to see them perform well to help bring home the second win of the season. We’ll face the toughest course in the region next, so we are working to get ready for the challenge that awaits us in McCook.”
Leading the Lancers was freshman Brendan Thomas, Farmington, UT. Thomas shot 64 in round 1 and 69 in round 2 for a two-day total of 133, 8 strokes ahead of second. Other Lancer scores were as follows:
Russel Sprecher, freshman, Casper, WY, 70, 72 – 142, 3rd
Owen Walsh, freshman, Ottawa, Canada, 75, 75 – 150, 8th
