|Klein performs well at state golf|
|Written by Chris Lee|
HHS senior Deyten Klein finished in the middle of the pack at the Class 3A state golf tournament Monday-Tuesday, Oct. 1-2 at Pinehurst Country Club in Denver.
Klein carded a first round score of 85 and backed it up with a 91 on the second day. The 176 total placed Klein in 48th position out of the 84 golfers.
Coach Garrett Gordon said nerves played a factor in Klein’s game. He said the senior could’ve turned in much lower scores but nerves kept some of his shots from finding the right places.
Still, the coach is proud of Klein and his progression over the last four years of his high school career. Gordon said Klein has grown not only on the course but into a great leader for his team.
Gordon said Klein intends to play golf in college and the improvements he’s made on and off the course will make him a great leader on any team he is involved with on or off the course.
Kent Denver High School took the top two positions at the state tournament with Ben Moore shooting back-to-back rounds of even par 70. Ethan Freeman carded 70, 73 for a three over 143 total. Kent Denver took first-place honors with Holy Family High School, Estes Park High School, Alexander Dawson High School and Trinidad High School rounding out the top five.
