Prep golfers back in the swing at Rupert

High school golfers played through plenty of wind, but they also enjoyed sunny conditions Wednesday for the Minico Invitational boys' and girls' meets at Rupert Country Club.

The Twin Falls Bruins won the Great Basin Conference meet by 35 points over second-place Canyon Ridge of Twin Falls in the boys' varsity competition, and by 69 points over Minico in the girls' contest.

Hailey's Wood River High School sent 11 golfers with senior Sage Sauerbrey putting up the best 18-hole round with a 91. The individual medalists, both from Twin Falls, were Alec Meyerhoeffer with a 3-over-par 74 and Sydney Lee, 81.

Other Wood River boys' varsity scores: Tyler Spence 93, Rickie Jeneson 94, Riley Neel 99 and James Petzke 105. The junior varsity boys were Lane Coulthard 93, Cody Richmond 94 and Martin Gottlander 104.

Wood River varsity girls scores were Hannah Haupt 120, Janie Heather 138 and Bella Stimac 145.
