|Dragon golfers debut at Brush|

With the weather wreaking havoc on the Holyoke girls’ golf season, the team finally was able to compete in their first tournament of the year as three varsity members made the trip to the Brush Invitational Monday, April 1.
The girls started the season off on a high note as they picked up a third-place finish out of six teams. While the Lady Dragons were behind Greeley and Ft. Morgan, they managed to top Wray, Yuma and Brush.
Makayla Spitz led the team with a score of 100, while Alyssa Cordova shot a 106 and Caitlyn Kramer shot a 122 on the day.
Coach Garrett Gordon was very pleased with the performance of his team. The girls have braved the cold conditions to play nine holes at practice throughout last week and he believes that if they were able to get in more holes with cooperative weather, they all could be shooting in the 90s.
“Our goal is to get those three girls in the 90s here in the next week or so,” Gordon said.
Due to snow, tournaments in Burlington and Brush were both canceled earlier in the season. On Saturday, March 30, the team also had to pull out of a tournament in Yuma as they did not have enough players due to spring break.
With many girls still out of town for spring break, the team nearly had to miss the Brush Invitational as well. Kramer, who had been dealing with a bad cold, took one for the team and decided to play.
Gordon noted that the girls are very excited about their performance and are looking forward to getting out and competing again in the upcoming tournament in Burlington.
The girls will head to Burlington Thursday, April 4 with a tee-time set for 10 a.m.
