Eagle Valley and VMS golfers headed to state tournament
VMS placed second as a team while Hughes and Gill qualify as individuals
Six local golfers will compete in the CHSAA state golf tournament next week after stellar performances at their respective region championships. Eagle Valley’s Kylee Hughes and Anna Gill qualified for the 4A state championships after finishing second and sixth, respectively, at the 4A Region 4 tournament on Monday in Montrose, and Vail Mountain School qualified as a team after placing second in the 3A Region 4 tournament on Tuesday in Alamosa.
“Playing well at state has been the goal this season and Kylee and Anna are playing great golf right now,” coach Zachary Haglin stated.
Hughes shot a 75 at Cobble Creek in Montrose for her second place finish while Gill tied for sixth with an 84. Sofia Choi of Mullen shot 68 to win. The 4A tournament will take place at Tiara Rado Golf Course in Grand Junction.
“It’s all about putting together two solid rounds and I will enjoy watching them play their last high school event before going to play at the collegiate level,” Haglin said.
“It has been a pleasure to coach Kylee and Anna and I look forward to seeing them play at Tiara Rado next week.”
