The Eastern Wyoming College Lancer Golf Team won the McCook Community College hosted tournament with a two-day total of 631 (319-312).  Central Wyoming College was second with a two-day score of 655.

Freshman Harry Walch won the tournament with scores of 75-78, 153.  This is the second tournament win in a row for Walch who is from Staines, England.

“McCook has a very challenging golf course so I was happy to walk away with a win,” said Coach Zach Smith.  “It’s very hilly which challenges our players physically and mentally.  It was great to have Harry win back-to-back tournaments.  Once again, it took a total team effort to pull off the win.  I am proud of the team.”

Other scores from the Lancer team were as listed below.
Jared Pilkington, freshman, Scottsbluff, NE – 84, 74 – 158, tied 3rd
Calum Giffen, freshman, Kelty, Scotland – 80, 84 – 164, tied 6th
