Local duffers hit the links

There were no green jackets, but plenty of tigers in the field as local prep golfers hit the links at area courses on Tuesday.

Glenns Ferry hosted a four-team meet at Carmela Vineyards, and was the winning team with a four-man 306.

"They're good," Community School coach Harry Weekes said. "Their golfers scored 74, 75, 78 and 79."

Kimberly was second at 320 and Gooding, who boasted meet medallist Mike Bansher (73) was third with 379 points. In their second outing of the season, the Cutthroats compiled a 396 to finish fourth.

Christian Cairncross was low man for Sun Valley with an 80, but on the second loop of the nine-hole course, knocked 16 strokes off his score.

Sophomore Regan O'Reilly carded 101, freshmen Cody Boeger 107, Max Harris 108 and Spencer Harris 112.

In girls' play, Rachael Becker tallied a 130.

"She had no circle ten's," Weekes said referring to the score a golfer gets when they play a ball too many times on one hole. "She was happy."

Next up for The Community School is the Declo Invitational at Rupert on April 19.

Madison's Tyson McFarland fired a four-under 66 to take individual honors at the team's home meet at Teton Lakes Country Club.

Paced by McFarland's performance the Bobcats beat Idaho Falls by two strokes, 297 to 299. In a field of 13 schools, Minico was third at 307.

Wolverine coach John Braafladt said Chase Thomas posted the team's lowest score with an 89 and both Cooper McCroskey and Kyle Cole "shot in the 90's."

"Which is a great improvement over last week's score," Braafladt added.

In the girls' tilt at Jefferson Hills Country Club in Rigby, Pocatello was the top team with a 366. Idaho Falls, 378, was second, and Jerome, 385, third.

Wood River's Adrianna Maniere fired a 107. Carrie Bloom also participated.

Highland High School's Gate City Invitational in Pocatello is the next meet for the Hailey golfers. The girls play on Monday and the boys on Wednesday.
