So far, so good for the Aspen High School boys golf team. Two tournaments into the fall season and the Skiers have two team titles to show for it.

Friday at Devil’s Thumb Golf Club in Delta, which is where AHS will play its regional tournament, the Skiers shot 218 to win the Panther Invitational. Junior Dawson Holmes shot 68 to win the tournament, carding seven birdies and an eagle, according to assistant coach Don Buchholz.

Thursday in Cedaredge, Aspen won their season-opening tournament behind a 76 from Dom Lanese, who finished second in the tournament.

Alongside Holmes and Lanese, junior Colter Zwieg and seniors Carter Hall and Henry Ferguson also competed.

The Skiers next play Monday at Battlement Mesa before splitting up and going to two tournaments on Tuesday, one in Eagle-Vail and another in Denver.

But there’s another metric worth clocking too: Smiles per hour.
