Trevor Davis plays an iron off the tee on the third hole at Juniper Golf Course on Friday. Davis fired a round of 97 as the Cowboys finished in third at the five-team Panther Invitational.
For the third consecutive time this season, the Crook County High School boys golf team has finished in the middle of the pack.
Playing in windy conditions on Friday afternoon, the Cowboys finished with a score of 374 to take third in the five-team Panther Invitational.
“It was tough elements over there,” said Crook County coach Zach Lampert. “Juniper is probably the toughest course we are going to play all year. Throw in the wind, and it was pretty tough.”
The Summit Storm weathered the elements to take first place in the tournament with a score of 321. Led by tournament medalist Mason Rodby, who shot a five-over-par 77, the host Redmond Panthers took second with a total of 339.
Although Crook County was a distant third, they had a comfortable lead over fourth-place Ridgeview (386), and fifth- place Mountain View (397).
“We are still a ways behind those top teams from Bend, Redmond, and Summit,” Lampert said. “But we are leading the next wave.”
The Cowboys were led by Kody Kuk who fired a round of 84 — good enough to tie for fifth place overall in the tournament.
“I thought that Kuk played really well,” Lampert said. “He was one of the top scorers in the tournament.”
Lampert was also pleased with the performance of Joe Morgan, who shot a round of 92.
Rounding out the scoring for the Cowboys were Trevor Davis (97), and Josh Christian (101). Also competing for the Cowboys was Cabe Goehring, who posted a round of 104 in the first varsity tournament of his career.
The Cowboys played Monday at the Bend Invitational, which was held at Pronghorn Golf Club. The team will be back on the links again on Thursday when they travel to Redmond for the Eagle Ridge Invite, which will be hosted by Ridgeview.
