The Grand County High School boys golf team remains undefeated after its first three region matches this season. The wins include a decisive 17-stroke victory at a home match at the Moab Golf Club on Aug. 19.

According to GCHS head coach Aaron Woodard, Grand’s team scores have improved with each match.

In the season opener at Green River on Aug. 5, Grand shot a 350 as a team. Woodard said the top three scorers in that match were all freshmen. Masen Ward led the way with an 84, followed by Brendon Woodard’s 87 and Alec Williams, who shot an 89. GCHS junior Brayden Ward shot a 90 as Grand edged out second-place South Sevier by two strokes.

On Aug. 12 at St. George, the Red Devils scored 336 as a team, winning by seven strokes. Top scorers were Masen Ward, who shot an 82, Brendon Woodard with 83, Alec Williams with 84 and Brad Ward with 87. Close behind them for Grand were Tyson Saggboy, who shot an 88 and Brayden Ward with 91. Only the top four scores count toward the team total in each match.

On Aug. 19 at Moab, Grand improved on its team score even further by shooting a 325. Brendon Woodard finished the match with 78 and Tyson Saggboy shot a 79 to lead the way for the Red Devils. Brothers Masen and Brayden Ward each shot an 84 in the home match. Williams scored 88 and Tobin Wainer added a 98.

This week, the Red Devil golfers are scheduled to play at Richfield on Tuesday, Aug. 26.

Grand’s only other home match of the season will be the Region XV championships on Sept. 30.
