68 prep golfers tour Valley Club

At Wood River Classic

    It was a sunny, 50-degree Wood River Valley spring day with a chilly breeze for Tuesday’s Wood River Classic high school golf tournament hosted by Hailey’s Wood River High School at The Valley Club.
    Sixty-eight prep golfers from seven schools made their annual 18-hole tours of the mid-valley golf course led by boys’ and girls’ team winners Twin Falls. Nine of the 46 boys broke 80 on their tours with the Twin Falls boys having six of those nine carding sub-80 rounds.
    Individual medalists with 74s were Alec Perkins and Kyle Miley of Twin Falls, and Drew Carlson from Century of Pocatello. Connor Meyerhoeffer and Brady Nelson of Twin Falls scored 75 and 76.
    Girls’ medalist by a three-stroke margin was Sydney Lee of Twin Falls, 83, over Nicole Blanchard of Century, 86.
    Coach Bill Petzke’s Wood River boys’ team placed sixth of the seven boys’ teams with 370 strokes. Hailey’s 18-hole scores were Reilly Neel 80, Tyler Spence 81, Max Mihalic 101, Wyatt Johnson 103, Brandon Dolenar 108, Cody Richmond 109 and Michael Flolo 114.
    Final boys’ team scores were Twin Falls 305, Century 331, Canyon Ridge of Twin Falls 337, Jerome 359, Burley 365, Wood River 370 and Minico of Rupert 384.
    Each school except Century will compete in the state-qualifying GBC conference meet Monday, May 6 at Twin Falls Golf Club.
    Petzke said of Tuesday’s results, “The boys had a good day. Highlights included the decent scores of Reilly Neel (80) and Tyler Spence (81). Considering the fact that the low score of the day (74) was recorded by one of the best players in 4A, our guys are not that far off.
    “The weather has cooperated with us lately and we are making up some of the ground lost to other schools due to poor weather. Another highlight of the day was the score of freshman Wyatt Johnson. He was a relative beginner at the start of the season, but he recorded a personal record of 103.”
    Wood River’s girls (452 points) finished second behind Twin Falls (392) and ahead of third-place Canyon Ridge (462). Wolverine girls’ scores were Bella Stimac 105, Maggie Sfingi 112, Caitie Sfingi 116, Mary Petzke 119 and Amber Park 132.
