Huskies golf 10th at Montrose
Apparently, the curve in 4A boys golf in Colorado is getting steeper.
The Huskies had four players in the 70s – which normally will put your team in the running for a title – but finished 10th out of 24 teams at Montrose on Wednesday.
“I was happy with the scores, but the boys were not,” Huskies coach Cassie Desmone said. “Keith Denton came up so me and said, “Ms. Desmone, I should have shot a 67.'”
Denton and company’s scores were fine, whatever the Huskies said. Clint Wilson led with a 77, followed by Denton, who carded a 78. Matt Nichols came around in 79, as did Chad Rush. Robert Gosiewski rounded things out with an 85.
With regionals also being held at Montrose next month, Desmone figures the Huskies scores are going to have to come down a bit more, if the team is going to be in the mix.
“I need to have low 70s,” she said. “Two 72s and a 73 would do. We have a long ways to go, but we’re going to get there. There’s good competition out there. It just keeps getting better.”
Wednesday, the Huskies had a rough go of it Devil’s Thumb in Delta. Wilson fired a nice 77, while Denton carded an 82. Nichols and Rush again had identical scores – this time it was an 89.
Next up for the Huskies are the Aspen G.C. on Tuesday and The Hill at Glenwood Springs on Wednesday
