Yuma golfers one more tourney before regional
Yuma High School’s boys golf team is at Holyoke today, September 12, for its final tournament prior to competing in regional on September 24.
Coach Benjamin Weathers said the Indians continue to improve as they head toward the postseason.
They were at the Chad Godfrey Memorial last Wednesday, September 4.
The varsity played at Riverview Golf Course, where the Indians finished 16th out of 17 teams with a 290 team score, which Weathers said is one of their best team scores this season.
Junior Bryson Castillo led the Indians with an 88, his best round ever in a high school tournament. Junior John Turvey played in his first varsity tournament of the year, shooting a 100 for a personal record. Freshman Nash Richardson shot a 102, and classmate Jack Blecha came in with a 114.
“When you have two guys shoot the lowest rounds of their careers, it makes for a pretty fun day,” Weathers commented.
The JV played at Northeastern 18. Brekyn Josh shot the lowest round of his career with a 106. Brenden Jones shot a 108. Jayden Serl shot the lowest round of his career with a 118 and Lars Sims shot the lowest round of his sophomore year with a 121.
“So all around it was a really good day,” Weathers said.
The Indians also competed in the Dale Douglass Invitational in Fort Morgan, this past Tuesday, finishing seventh with a 285, another strong team score this season. Blecha led the way with an 89, his best in his freshman year, while Castillo shot a 91, and Jones and Richardson both 105. Brekyn Josh, Josh Daugherty and Serl also played.
