MCCOOK, Neb. – For the second straight week, the Region IV golfers had their tournament cut short due to weather. Last week in Colorado, they managed to get 27 holes in, but this week, it was only 18.
The Eastern Wyoming College Lancer golf team returned from McCook tied for second after the tournament was called after only one round.
The Lancers tied Central Wyoming College for second with a score of 324. McCook won the tournament with a score of 320.
“Weather conditions at the last two tournaments have made it difficult on all of the teams. The guys had a hard time really getting into a groove where they could put together a good score,” EWC coach Zach Smith said. “McCook was able to outperform the rest of the teams to win at their home tournament. We are looking forward to playing in two tournaments the first week of April and hopefully will regain some confidence.”
Leading the Lancers was sophomore George Elliott, of Salisbury, England, who shot an 80, which tied him for sixth place.
The Lancers played in Lincoln, Neb., April 2-3 and then returns to Region IV action in Sterling, Colo., April 4-5.
Other Lancer scores were as follows:
Harry Walch, sophomore, Staines, England – 81, tied eighth
JoVin Tan, freshman, Taiping, Malaysia – 81, tied eighth
Gonzalo Arcelay, sophomore, Munguia, Spain – 82, tied 13th
RJ Moya, freshman, Three Rivers, Texas – 82, tied 13th
