The Indians were back at it last Friday at the Cheyenne Wells Invitational at Smoky River Golf Club. They finished fifth out of eight teams with a 322. Cheyenne Wells won with a 238. Ward led Yuma with a 96, the first time he broke 100, while Noble had a 109, Jones 117 and Scheutz 118. (Most varsity players were unavailable as they had a football team scrimmage in Denver that day.) The Yuma JV shot a 314 as Castillo had a 101, Remmich 104 and Hansen 109.
Weathers noted the varsity line has been juggled around a bit due to players having football commitments, but noted that the players are improving.
“I think overall it’s gone pretty well so far,” he said.
The Indians were at the Frontier Academy tournament in Greeley on Wednesday, and at Estes Park Thursday, August 26, then go to Holyoke on Friday. They are at the Strasburg tourney on Tuesday.
