Winds gusting at more than 30 miles per hour made for a tough outing Tuesday for The Community School boys' golf team at 93 Golf Ranch near Jerome.
Scores ran higher than usual in the blustery conditions and play was confined to only nine holes rather than the 18 planned.
Host team Valley High School came out on top with a team score of 240. The Community School placed second three strokes higher at 243.
The top Cutthroat golfer was Cody Boeger who shot a 53. Max Harris was next best at 59. Other Community School players were Jeff Gaecke at 65, Bob Mollineaux at 66 and Spencer Harris at 69.
Boeger tied for the best score of the meet with Lighthouse Christian Academy golfer Kody Graham.
Oakley High School also participated in the meet.
"It was 48 degrees and blowing between 30-50 miles an hour," said Cutthroat coach Harry Weekes. "When laws of physics started being defied we called it a wrap."
The Cutthroats play next in Rupert in a meet hosted by Declo starting at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, April 17. Also scheduled to compete are teams from Kimberly, Valley, Filer, Wendell and Murtaugh.
Wood River golfers at Kimberly
Inclement weather also played havoc with Wood River High School golf scores in a six-school meet Tuesday at Pleasant Valley in Kimberly.
In a meet cut short to nine holes, Gooding took top honors in the boy's competition with a team score of 167. Declo finished a stroke behind at 168 for second place.
Kimberly golfers had a team score of 179 for third, Wendell scored 185 for fourth and Murtaugh finished fifth at 205. Wood River golfers shot 212 for sixth place.
Kimberly, the only school to field a full girls' squad, won the girls competition with a score of 255.
The Wood River boys' and girls' squads played Thursday at the Preston Invitational at the Preston Golf and Country Club.
