The Demons shot a +19 as a team, defeating Grand Junction Central (+39), Aspen (+50), Grand Junction (+54), host Palisade (+66), Eagle Valley (+77), Fruita Monument (+81), and Gunnison (+95).

Individually, Grand Junction’s Brittlynn O’Dell won the tournament with a round of +3, finishing ahead of Glenwood’s Maggie Friemel in second place. The Demon golfer shot a round of +19, edging out Palisade’s Kayla Keith and Eagle Valley’s Kylee Hughes, who tied for third with rounds of +21, while Aspen’s Avery Hirsch finished fifth with a round of +22.

Glenwood returns to action Wednesday, April 3, at Cobble Creek Golf Course in a tournament hosted by Montrose at 9 a.m.
