The Eastern Wyoming College Lancer Golf team are on a roll and have captured the championship title at their fifth golf tournament this fall season. The Lancers won the tournament hosted by Otero Junior College with a score of 563. McCook Community College was second with a score of 582.
Winning the tournament was sophomore Harry Walch, Staines, England. He shot 70, 65 for a total of 135 to take the win. Other Lancer scores were as follows:
Mason Hale, freshman, Atkinson, NE, 71, 71 – 142, tied 3rd Gonzalo Arcelay, sophomore, Munguia, Spain, 72, 70 – 142, tied 3rd Eric Stevens, freshman, Bridgeport, NE, 71, 72 – 143, 7th George Elliott, sophomore, Salisbury, England, 73, 71 – 144, tied 8th Jo Vin Tan, freshman, Taiping, Malaysia, 77, 76 – 153, 22nd
"Several of the teams played very well on day 1, which left us trailing by 4 strokes headed into day 2. It was tough to feel disappointed by that because there was just some really good golf played down there," said Coach Zach Smith. "Fortunately the team showed their determination and resiliency and were able to play great on Friday to come away with the win."
"Harry told me before the round started on Friday that he felt he would need to shoot several under to get a win and that is exactly what he did. He shot a 65, with birdies on the last 4 holes. I was very excited to see him get the individual win."
