Vivian Brown first MHS girls golfer to qualify for state tourney

MEEKER | It was another first for lady Cowboy golf as they traveled to their regional tournament in Alamosa.

“We had a wonderful time at regionals,” commented head coach Amanda Back, “we began with a practice round at Cattails Golf Course in Alamosa that has a par of 71.”

The tournament was Thursday, June 10, tee times for the girls were 9:10 beginning with Jayda May, 9:20 Wagner Brown and at 9:30 Vivian Brown teed off in their first ever CHSAA 3A regional golf tournament.

Cattails is not a forgiving course; there are a lot of trees and a ton of carry over marshlands.

“The girl’s hearts and determination to play well was electrifying,” commented Back. “Jayda and Wagner played their hearts out. I was so proud of all of their accomplishments during their rounds and they had some awesome shots and some phenomenal putts.”

“We were so excited when we got to the clubhouse to have finished our first regionals,” commented Back.

There are two ways to make it to state, as a qualifying team or as an individual to round out the number of total players that will be in the tournament. When they announced the individuals who were going to state, V. Brown made Meeker High School history by being the first Meeker Cowboys girls golfer to make it to state.

“We were so excited and are so grateful for the overwhelming support for our team from our awesome town of Meeker; we are so grateful and so blessed,” said Back.

Next stop is the CHSAA 3A State Golf.
