Prep golfers enjoy Valley Club tour

Twin Falls captures boys’ and girls’ titles

     Fifty-nine high school golfers enjoyed sunny, 50-degree weather with low winds Tuesday for the Wood River Classic prep golf tournament at The Valley Club.

     The Wood River High School golf teams hosted the 18-hole competition for boys and girls from the six Great Basin Conference schools.

     The Twin Falls Bruins, three-time defending State 4A boys’ golf winners and last year’s state girls’ runner-up, picked up team victories for the boys and girls Tuesday.

     Seven of the eight Twin Falls boys broke 80 at The Valley Club and the Bruin boys (301 strokes) finished ahead of Canyon Ridge of Twin Falls (326) and third-place Wood River (336). Minico (342) was fourth and Burley (383) fifth.

     Canyon Ridge’s Alex Dey (72) was the individual medalist ahead of Preston Nelson (73) of Twin Falls in the field of 37 boys.

     The 18-hole scores for the Wolverine boys were Tyler Spence 79, Rielly Neel 82, Callum Stearns 86, Austin Shetler 89 and Matt Schell 121. Wood River’s Brock Olson shot 118.

     In girls’ team standings, Twin Falls (392) placed ahead of Canyon Ridge (434), Jerome (483) and fourth-place Wood River (513).

     The only girls to break 100 came from Twin Falls—individual medalist Macy Urrutia (93) and Brynli Bartlett (98).

     Wood River girls and their scores were Mary Petzke 103, Bella Stimac 107, Molly Elgee 150, Mia Uhrig 153 and Victoria Brown 168.

     Coach Bill Petzke of Wood River said, “Both our boys’ and girls’ teams are playing much better and getting ready for districts next week.”

     The Great Basin Conference state-qualifying golf competition is scheduled for Monday, May 5 at 10 a.m. at Canyon Springs Golf Course, Twin Falls.
