Aspen boys golf team prepares for state meet
September 19, 2014
The Aspen High School boys golf team is experiencing education and golf in the same week.
When Aspen High School's experiential education week-long program was moved from the spring to the fall this year, the schedule created a challenge for the AHS boys golf team.
But the Skiers, their parents and teachers reached into the golf bag and pulled out an experiential education week that allowed the Aspen golfers to play in the Regional Championships on Monday in Durango — the first day of ex ed.
The Aspen boys won the regional title behind Trey Robinson's medalist round, earning a trip to the state tournament in Sterling in two weeks.
The Skiers left Durango and headed to San Diego to continue their ex-ed trip with forays into history, the environment and golf.
The Aspen High School boys golf team played famed Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego this week, all part of preparation for the State Championships and ex ed.
