Meeker girls play back-to-back tourneys

MEEKER | Meeker girls golf played River Valley Ranch on Monday. It rained for half of the day making conditions less than ideal. This was a par 72 course, and the home course for head coach Amanda Back.

“The girls did awesome,” commented Back.

Jayda May shot a 115 which was 32 strokes better than the last tournament, Wagner Brown shot a 121, improving by 15 strokes, and Vivian Brown shot a 145.

“I am so proud of the girls, they are improving and they are understanding that this game takes patience and that they have to trust the process to improve and get better,” Back said.

The following day the team traveled to Craig and played the Yampa Valley Golf Course, which is also a par 72. On Tuesday, V. Brown shot 121, W. Brown shot 129 and May shot 129.

“They did great with their focus playing back to back tournaments, and championed their mental games, staying right in there,” Back said. “They are improving immensely and we are going to keep working hard to achieve all the girls’ goals. I couldn’t be prouder for our first year and we will keep our momentum going throughout the year.”

The girls are seeing some new courses and are looking forward to their next tournament on Friday, May 28, once again playing at Chipeta in Grand Junction.
