WHS Lady Bulldogs win second straight tournament

Courtesy/PC Record-Times Bryley Waring tees off in Rawlins and came home as the medalist for the match. The girls won their second tournament in the last two weeks.

RAWLINS – The boys and girls teams improved on their scores from last week’s home tournament, which is exactly what the coaching staff was hoping for.

“Honestly, it was a bit of a surprise because the conditions on Friday were less than ideal,” said head golf coach Tony Nichols. “The temperature was in the mid-40s with 20–30-mile winds when the golfers began their final round.”

The weather did not improve much over the course of the day, but it did not deter either team from an excellent day on the lynx.

“Our team battled the adverse conditions much better than I anticipated,” Nichols said. “The girls team won for the second straight week and improved by six shots from last week. The boys finished fourth and improved by 14 shots as well.”

Individually, Bryley Waring took home medalist honors by grinding out a solid final round score of 90. She won with a two-day total 182. Lily Nichols and Macy Jones came in a close second and third with two-day totals of 185 and 189. This is the second straight week the girls sealed the top three spots on the leaderboard.

On the boy’s side, the Bulldogs were once again led by freshmen Brecken Sandlian and Dylan Nelson who both finished in the top 20. Ethan Jackson, Wyatt Fitzwater and Caden Davis placed 22nd, 25th and 27th.

“Next week we are heading to the Torrington Invite at the Cottonwood Golf Course,” Nichols said. “I’m excited to see how our bulldog golfers compete on a difficult course with a full field of golfers.”

Tee times are scheduled for 10 a.m. Thursday and Friday.
