Aspen girls golf battles rain, wind at Tiara Rado
The Aspen High School girls golf team battled annual spring rivals — wind and rain.
The Skiers, playing earlier this week at Tiara Rado in Grand Junction, faced a 45-minute suspension of play late in the Grand Junction Invitational.
The delay came late in the round, mainly because of howling winds on the course at the base of the Colorado National Monument.
Aspen finished sixth out of 12 teams.
Rifle won the tournament with a team 242, led by medalist Elly Walters and her low round of 77. Teammate Masi Smith was second at 78.

Grand Junction High finished second at 271.
The Rifle girls also won the team title at the Aspen Invitational at River Valley Ranch in Carbondale earlier this season.
The Skiers used a youthful lineup of Mae Sharaf, Julia Fahy, Zoe Guthrie and Kat Kowar. They posted a 316.
“Our freshmen golfers posted the best scores, and I’m excited for the future of our team,” said Aspen coach Don Buchholz.
The Skiers will face a busy schedule next week with tournaments at Glenwood Springs, Ironbridge and Rifle.
The regionals will be held at Yampa Golf Club in Craig.
