Huskies golfers take long road at River Valley Ranch

The course at River Valley Ranch played long Thursday, literally and figuratively.

Known for its lengthy holes and walks from green to tee, it1s a demanding course. It1s even more demanding when your round takes 6 1/2 hours.

Such was the case for the Battle Mountain girls golf team, which still managed to finish ninth.

3The greens were really tough today, super fast,² coach Cassie Desmone said. 3We finished at 6:30 p.m. after teeing off at 12. That had a little bit to do with out scores.²

Nevertheless, Lauren Bruce-Lund was able to lead the way for the Huskies with a 102. Krista Kedrowski and Briana Shoulders each carded a 113. Liz Berens rounded out the scoring with a 117.

As the weather improves, the team figures to get more practice opportunities for improvement. The Huskies are back in action next Thursday and Friday at Delta and Cedaredge.

Rifle booters top Huskies

Rifle topped the Battle Mountain girls soccer team 1-0 Thursday afternoon.

The Bears1 Ashley Gavito scored at the 12-minute mark and the marker stood.

The Huskies, 1-3 overall and 1-1 in the 4A Western Slope, head to Glenwood Springs for a 1 p.m. game Saturday.
