Aspen High School golfers top 3A field in Delta

It wasn’t revenge, necessarily, but a day after falling to Delta in its season-opening tournament at Cedaredge, the Aspen High School boys golf team was able to flip the script on the Panthers.

Led by 73 from sophomore Colter Zwieg, the Skiers finished second as a team for the second-consecutive day, their collective 222 a solid 17 strokes ahead of third-place Delta at the Panthers’ own invitational at Devil’s Thumb Golf Club.

Montrose, a Class 4A school, shot 210 to win the tournament.

“We all played well. It was very windy today,” Aspen sophomore Jack Hughes said. “The whole team played very well yesterday, it just wasn’t quite enough. But today, everyone played great. Everyone was happy.”

Zwieg’s 73 was good for fifth.

Hughes shot 74 to finish sixth and freshman Jack Pevny 75 for seventh.

Sophomores Dawson Holmes and Dominic Lanese, who tied for first at Cedaredge, each shot 80 to finish in the top 15.

The Skiers next compete Monday at Battlement Mesa, where they will be without Hughes. He is competing in Denver today in a regional qualifier for the Drive, Chip and Putt Championship.

Following that, he will compete in an American Junior Golf Association event in California next week.

Two Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteer projects are scheduled to assist with finish work, rock armoring and seeding of disturbed areas, according Ted O’Brien, manager of Pitkin County Open Space and Trails Resource and Trails. The events will be led in collaboration with Open Space and Trails and the Roaring Fork Mountain Biking Association.
