|Written by Kyle Arnoldy|
Four Dragon golfers made the trip to Indian Peaks in Lafayette Wednesday, Sept. 18 to compete in the Northern 3A regional golf tournament.
As he has done all season, Gage Garnas led the HHS squad with a round score of 80, earning him a 10th place finish and a spot in the 3A state tournament.
Garnas will join 83 other golfers for the state championship tournament at the Pueblo Country Club Monday-Tuesday, Sept. 30-Oct. 1.

“Gage played great and really stepped up at the end and made the shots he needed to to be able to move on,” coach Garrett Gordon said.
Garnas will be playing in his first state tournament, as he was named a reserve last year after losing a regional playoff that would have sent him to state.
Gordon said with the pressure on Garnas this season to qualify for state, his performance at regionals really showed how he has matured and improved in the past year.
Also competing for HHS were Tristan Sullivan, Kody Timm and Xander Nelson.
