AHS golf tees off at regionals

The Aspen High School boys golf team tees off at the Haymaker golf course in Steamboat Springs today for a chance to advance to the Class 4A Colorado Golf State Championship.

The team of four seniors, Ryan Doremus, Peter Vandomelen, Scott Tarbet and Nate Walla, will be competing against about 25 teams in the 18-hole Western Slope Regional Tournament. Only the top two teams advance to the state tournament, based on each team’s top three scores, along with the top 10 individual players. The AHS team was scheduled to play a practice round at Haymaker on Tuesday.

“The team’s capable of winning,” AHS coach Alden Richards said Monday. “I anticipate a good showing. We’re one of the top three contenders going up there and I think we’ll make it to state.”

Walla, who has played in the state tournament the last two years, is Aspen’s top gun with a scoring average of 74 on the season. Tarbet isn’t far off that pace, averaging 76 on the season, while Doremus and Vandomelen are averaging 83 and 86, respectively.
