The Eastern Wyoming College Lancer Golf team just returned from Las Vegas, NV where they competed in the 6th Annual MJGA Collegiate tournament at the Aliante Golf Club. The Lancers finished the tournament in 6th place shooting 317, 301 for a two-day total of 618.
Leading the Lancers was freshman Tomas Kubata, Prague, Czech Republic, with a 7th place individual finish. He shot 77, 68 – 145. Other Lancer scores were as follows:
Jo Vin Tan, sophomore, Taiping, Malaysia, 83, 69 – 152, tied 15th
Lucas Howell, freshman, Colorado Springs, CO, 79, 78 – 157, 26th
RJ Moya, sophomore, Three Rivers, TX, 78, 86 – 164, 46th
Mason Hale, sophomore, Atkinson, NE, 83, 89 – 172
"It was a good experience for our guys to play in a D2, 4-year university tournament," said Coach Zach Smith. "We didn't play very well the first day but we played a lot better overall the second day to finish in the middle of the pack. I think this will be a great tune-up as we head into region play next week. I think there is a lot we can take away from this tournament that will help us the rest of the year."
The Lancers will begin the spring season March 19-20 in LaJunta, CO.
