Montrose ultimately came out on top of a competitive field of about 70 players from 11 teams, with a team total of 218, barely edging out Grand Junction’s 219. The Tigers, however, took top individual honors with the only athletes to shoot below par, as brothers Trevor and Canon Olkowski finished the day with a 68 and 71, respectively.

Steamboat Springs High School placed sixth among varsity teams with a 252. Tommy Henninger had the best day among the Sailors, scoring an 82 for 15th place.

Jacob Taulman was close behind at 84, with Jack McNamara adding an 86 to complete the varsity score. Nolan Sankey and Jack Rotermund rounded out the numbers with an 87 and 89, respectively.

Colton Sankey outdid many varsity-level players with his own 86 to take second place among JV groups. The Sailors placed second among the three schools that fielded full teams.

Steamboat coach Andrew Donner said the quality of play was an improvement in comparison to a rough opening week.

“We saw some better shots, still probably not quite where we wanted, but the goal is steadily improving with a kind of young team when even our seniors are tournament young,” he said.

The Sailors sent three golfers as far as the 4A state tournament last season, all of whom have since graduated.

“Those guys spent four years playing high-level golf, so it’s a little different team this year, but scores are better, and everyone’s in the 80s, so that’s an improvement over last week,” Donner said.

Leading the host team was Mike Bingham, with a season-best 76 to place seventh. It was his first time breaking 80 this fall. Following Bingham on the varsity MCHS team were Connor Etzler and Torin Reed, shooting 91 and 93, respectively, to place eighth with a 260 tally.

Playing on behalf of Bulldog JV were Gage Rowley with a 122 and, in his first tournament ever, James DeWald at 129.

MCHS coach Justin Folley said the numbers showed quality play overall, better for some than others, yet still the lowest group score to date this season.

“Good weather, kids played quick today, made for a good round,” he said.

On Tuesday, the Sailors will host their own home event at Haymaker Golf Course.
