Yuma boys golf had a run in postseason

The Yuma High School boys golf team had its run in the postseason this past week.
Yuma competed in the Northeast League Championship, last Thursday at Sky Ranch in Sterling.
“We didn’t play our best by any means,” coach Benjamin Weathers said, “but Brodie (Castillo) and JJ (Ward) played well enough that both of them got all conference. Brodie finished in 10th place and got the last all conference spot and JJ finished in 4th place for the season.”
Castillo led the way for Yuma by shooting a 95. Ward shot a 98, Kaleb Jones 101, Kyle Schuetz 103 and Will Noble 103.
Yuma was in the Class 3A Region 3 Tournament this past Tuesday at Boomerang Links in Greeley. None of the YHS golfers qualified for state, but had some outstanding efforts.
Ward shot an 84, Schuetz 94, Jones 95 and Castillo 98, for a 273 team score. Weathers said that is the second-lowest regional team score in the nine years he has coached the YHS boys. The region is so deep that an 82 got five players into a playoff for the final two spots.
Weathers said each golfer was at or below their average, and seniors Jones and Schuetz did very well in their last regional. Jones shot a 42 on the back nine, and Schuetz’s 94 is one of his lowest rounds.
“It’s a bummer we didn’t qualify anyone for state, but they performed very well today,” Weathers said.
