MEEKER | The Meeker Cowboy Kickoff Classic was held last Saturday, Aug. 3 at The Meeker Golf Course. “Another successful golf tournament in the books,” said head coach Shane Phelan, “I would like to thank all of the sponsors that donated for the silent auction, those who came out to play, as well as the players for showing up in support of our football program.”

Winners of the 2018 Kickoff Classic, a 4-man-scramble, were Andy Coryell, Darby Finley, Mindy Finley and Maggie Phelan all of Meeker, Colo. Second place went to the team of Earl Schauer, Mark Litzelman and Bill de Vergie of Meeker, and Rod Copter of New Jersey.
The Cowboys are “looking forward to another great season and appreciate all the sponsors and players do,” said Phelan. The first game of the season will be at home on Aug. 24 against Aspen at 7 p.m.
