EWC wins McCook golf tournament
The Eastern Wyoming College Lancer golf team competed at the McCook Community College tournament on April 8-9. The Lancers won the tournament with a score of 314. McCook CC was second with 324.
“The golf course at McCook is always a challenge, but throw in 20-30 mph wind gusts, and it becomes even more challenging,” said Coach Zach Smith. “Tomas and Brendan had great rounds on Thursday to help lead us to a 10 stroke lead going into day two. We had some guys excited to get their minds right and play aggressive on Friday but unfortunately the second day was canceled due to weather conditions. Overall it was a solid team win and we look forward to preparing to play in Sterling.”
Sophomore Tomas Kubata, Prague, Czech Republic, won the tournament with a score of 74. Other Lancer scores were as follows:
Brendan Thomas, freshman, Farmington, UT, 75 – 2nd
Johannes Lindstrom, freshman, Falkoping, Sweden, 82 – tied 6th
Tim Van Stiphout, freshman, Hasselt, Belguim, 82 – tied 6th
Russel Sprecher, freshman, Casper, WY, 83 – tied 9th
Conrado Chozas, freshman, Madrid, Spain, 86 – tied 15th
The Lancers were scheduled to play in Sterling, CO on April 15-16 but because of weather, the tournament has been moved to April 17-18.
