LED BY HUGHES, ASPEN BOYS GOLF WINS IN GUNNISON
The Aspen High School boys golf team won yet another tournament on Wednesday, this one having a bit more meaning to it than previous wins as it was held at Dos Rios Golf Club in Gunnison, which will host next week’s regional tournament.
The Skiers shot a collective 2-over-par 215 to win the tournament by 28 strokes over Delta. Montrose was third, followed by Summit in fourth place.
AHS senior Jack Hughes was the low medalist, shooting 3-under 68 to beat Telluride’s Carlo Pine by two strokes. Aspen junior Jack Pevny was third at even par, while AHS senior Dominic Lanese was fourth at 5-over. Aspen’s Colter Zwieg was sixth at 6-over and Dawson Holmes seventh at 7-over.
The Skiers also won the junior varsity portion of the tournament.
Aspen is scheduled to compete Thursday at Keystone Ranch, its final regular-season tournament. The regional tournament will be held Monday back at Dos Rios, while the state tournament is scheduled for Oct. 1 and 2 in Boulder.
