The Eastern Wyoming College Lancer Golf team hosted their home tournament on September 5-6 at Cottonwood Golf Course in Torrington. The Lancers won the tournament with a score of 589. McCook Community College was second with a score 609.

"The team did a great job of taking advantage of our home course knowledge. The course is looking great and the guys played well to clinch our second win of the season. We've had a good balance of solid play from both the freshman and sophomores this fall. We'll face our toughest test this coming week in McCook. Their team has been improving, and the course is very challenging. I'm looking forward to see how we can perform on that course," said head coach Zach Smith.
