Demons top 4A schools in golf tournament

GOLDEN, Colorado ” Glenwood Springs’ girls golf balance served it well at Monday’s 38-school tournament at Rolling Hills Country Club in Golden.

With a team score of 266, the Demons placed sixth overall and tops among Class 4A schools amid a mostly 5A field at the site of the May 19-20 4A state tournament.

Monarch won the team title at Rolling Hills, carding a 250.

As it has all season, balance carried Glenwood.

Maggee Becker shot an 84 on the par-71 course, followed by Michelle Stripp at 86 and Natasha Derby with a 96. Brittaney Cole just missed a spot in the team’s top three with a 99.

“This was a good booster for regionals,” Demons coach Kathy Whiting said. “It gives the girls a lot of confidence. The girls proved they can play together as a team.”

Becker’s score placed her in seventh in the team standings.

“Maggee was steady Eddie,” Whiting said. “She was in the mode.”

Rifle’s Loren Forney helped the Bears to a team score of 285 by shooting an 84, which placed her eighth. (Becker won the scorecard playoff to nab seventh.) Teammate Kori Kosht followed with an 87.

The May 6 Western Slope Regional, hosted by Devil’s Thumb Golf Course in Delta, is on deck for both Glenwood and Rifle.

CRAIG, Colorado ” A different group of Demons made the trek to Craig to play Moffat County High School’s home tournament at Yampa Valley Golf Course.

And Glenwood’s top finishers there, all sophomores, posted personal-best scores.

Haley Peterson paced the squad with a 102, with Kelsey Warkentin adding a 104 and Stephanie Wilson carding a 112.

“They’re pretty intense, that group,” said Whiting, relaying results from assistant coach Mary Lamb, who coached Craig-bound Demons. “They’re showing a lot of promise.”
