The Pratt High School junior varsity sent split squads to Chaparral and to St. John last week to compete in a pair of 9-hole events.
Ethan Gillig and Dakota Hankins competed at St. John on Thursday in the 2-man scramble portion of the competition.
The pair combined to post a team score of 46, which was good enough to take 2nd place in the tournament.
Three individual golfers competed at the Chaparral meet held at the Anthony Golf Club, also on Thursday. Freshman Hunter Walker was Pratt’s top finisher with a 50. That score placed him in a 5-way tie for 8th place.
In the resulting chip-off, Walker took second which gave him 9th place for the tourney.
Zach Will posted a 54 after missing last season with an injury. PHS head coach Andy Kisner said, “He is just returning to us and will get better.”
Cole Fincham turned in a 55. “Cole is starting to figure out how to correct his mistakes and is showing signs of pushing for a varsity spot,” Kisner mentioned. “He went through some frustration to get where he is, and is ready to take the next step.”
With only three golfers at Chaparral, PHS did not compete in the team standings. The JVs will tee it up the next two Mondays, April 8 and 15, at Medicine Lodge.
