Wolverine boys tour Riverside at Gate City

Pocatello's Riverside Golf Course was a challenge Tues-day for 31 Gem State high school boys' golf teams during the Gate City Invitational won by Boise High with 305 points.

Individual medalist was Boise's Matt Sturgill with a 72.

Wood River High School's boys, playing without No. 1 golfer Davis Hague, finished well down in the team stand-ings with a score of 373 based on their top four 18-hole scores out of the five-player squad.

Great Basin Conference league teams Twin Falls (309) and Minico (315) fared better with third-place and fifth-place team finishes respectively on a day with decent weather, al-though a bit cloudy and chilly.

Wood River coach Bill Petzke said, "Davis Hague is still being hampered by a wrist injury and did not play. Freshman Tyler Spence came in with an 88. Although that didn't place in the tourney, it is a solid showing for him at this time of year and lack of avail-able local practice courses."

Besides Spence's 88, senior Charlie Evans carded a 90, sen-ior Walker Royston 95, senior Zach Thomas 100 and sopho-more Rickie Jeneson 107.
