Despite unfavorable conditions, the Fighting Farmer varsity boys placed first at the Eagle Invitational at the Fossil Creek Golf Course on Oct.15.

The boys had a total score of 328 and the girls had a 442. On the boys team, junior John Shofner shot the lowest score with an 80. Senior Trevor Proctor and junior Jessie Hart were right behind him with scores of 82. On the girls team, junior Gloria Viurquez shot the lowest score of 98. Senior Grace Kottas was right behind her with a score of 107.

“It was cool because it was the first tournament I’ve ever won with the team in my four years here,” senior Trevor Proctor said. “It was great because the weather was awful.”

It has been five years since the varsity boys have won a tournament.

On Sept. 30 at the Oakmont Country Club, the boys placed second in the Guyer Wildcat Open with a score of 319. McKinney Boyd placed first. Coach Ron Somers said each of the girls scores improved from their previous tournament scores.

Senior Trevor Proctor shot a one-over-par 73, tying with three others for the low round and first place.

“It was cool and I was proud of myself,” Proctor said

Senior Grace Kottas shot 96, which was the lowest score of all the girls.

“I like to support my teammates, but it’s nice to have the lowest score,” Kottas said.

At tournaments, the problem faced is the strength of the field and the obstacles, Somers said. Some of the best teams in the state play in tournaments the LHS teams attend.

“I try to keep my players focused on playing the course and not who they playing,” Somers said.

Somers said one challenge is keeping the players worried about their own games and not the other players on the course. He does this by keeping the players focused on the course and what they need to do to play the game.

The boys have a chance at district, Somers said. With the three strongest golfers, they could take the team to region, and they could advance individually as well.
