The Eastern Wyoming College Lancer Golf team finished second with a score of 628 at the McCook Community College tournament held September 12-13. McCook won the tournament with a score of 620.
"We struggled a bit in McCook," said Coach Zach Smith. "I was pleased to see Tomas play well both days, especially the second day when he shot -2 to tie for the individual win. McCook has been improving each week so I wasn't surprised to see them take advantage of things at home. I'm anxious to see how we bounce back in Sterling. We are playing a different course than we've ever played in Sterling this week so it will be a learning experience."
