The Grand County High School (GCHS) boys golf team is 4-0 for the 2013 season after claiming first place at two region tournaments in Moab on Aug. 27 and in Richfield on Sept. 3. 

“I’m proud of the boys. They are really coming along. We just hope to keep it up.” said coach Aaron Woodard.

Grand’s golf team competed against four Region 15 teams at both tournaments, including Emery, South Sevier, North Sevier, and Blanding. At the Moab tournament on Aug. 27, GCHS junior Jace Woodard shot a 79, securing his first place finish. Senior Hunter Peterson placed second with a score of 82.

Also placing at the tournament were junior Tyson Saggboy with a score of 87 and sophomore Brayden Ward, who shot a 91. The team came out with a grand total score of 339 for the win over Emery’s 352.

Grand’s golf team also took first place at Richfield on Sept. 3, narrowly eclipsing the South Sevier team by only three strokes.

“It was the closest tournament we’ve had yet,” said Wood-ard.

At the tournament, Jace Woodard scored an 82 for first place, Tyson Saggboy shot an 83 for second, and freshman Tobin Wainer scored an 89 for third place. Brayden Ward and Hunter Peterson tied for fourth place with a score of 90.

The team was scheduled to play in Monticello on Tuesday, Sept. 10 but that match was postponed due to weather.
