Published: Thursday, September 26th, 2013
The Custer High School golf team wrapped up a busy week of competition Monday morning by placing fifth at the Black Hills Conference tournament at Southern Hills Golf Course in Hot Springs.
The Wildcats finished with a team total of 404, led by Cole Conard’s 94, which placed him 13th overall. Conard was the only Wildcat to place in the top 15 at the meet, which was won by St. Thomas More with a score of 350. More’s Jeron Laurenti won medalist honors, with an 83.
Other individual Wildcat scores from the conference meet were not available at deadline.
Last Friday the team was in Belle Fourche, where it participated in a triangular against Lead-Deadwood and the host Broncs. The Wildcats finished second with a team score, led by Martinz’s 46 in the nine-hole event. Conard shot a 47, while Baker was at 51, Hollick 53 and Zacher 58. Lead-Deadwood won the event with a score of 172, and also had the lowest individual score of the meet, with Brett Matson shooting a 37.
Last Thursday the team was back in Box Elder for the Douglas Invitational, a nine hole event. The Wildcats came out on top by one stroke over Hot Springs—194-195, thanks in large part to a strong performance by Conard, who fired a 41 to lead Custer and had best score of all the players entered.
Martinz had the second best score for Custer with a 50, while Lane Robb, Reese Kelley and Adam Baker both finished at 51, Louis Radcliffe shot a 52, Noah Zacher 53, Nick Van Horn 57, Zach Hollick 59 and Joe Rush 65.
