KEYSTONE — They’re just getting it out of their systems before regionals.

That’s Battle Mountain and Vail Christian golf’s story and they’re sticking to it.

Thursday’s Summit County Invitational at Keystone Rancg was the last regular-season tournament before regionals Tuesday down in Durango, and it wasn’t the best day for the Huskies or the Gore Rangers.

Of course, it happens to everyone who’s ever played golf — better now than at regionals at the Hillcrest Golf Club down near Four Corners.

Tanner Crisofulli had an 84, which is good for most, but likely not to Crisofulli’s taste. Charlie Morrow came around in 98, while Jack Nichols carded a 104.

Dylan Hardenbergh led VMS with an 86, while Oliver Pesso and Sean Weller both had 89s.

Eagle Valley and Vail Christian did not attend, however, the Saints were busier earlier this week with a trip down to Hillcrest on Monday for a tournament.

While all four teams will have a practice round on Monday before Tuesday’s tournament, we go to Vail Christian’s Cooper Gould for the scouting report.

“There’s a lot more elevation change than you’d expect,” the defending 3A regional champ said. “The treelines aren’t too dense, but you have to hit the middle of the fairways. The greens are bit tricky, especially on the middle to end of the back nine. It’s pretty gettable.”
