Back on Friday, the Cody High School varsity golf teams kept their unofficial spring dockets going for 2018 away amongst the Big Horn Basin here at the Bobcat Invite held by Hot Springs County HS of Thermopolis. (It was a 9-hole par-70 course, so all the kids needed to play it twice by a pair of different tees.) That new Broncs and Fillies head coach, Jacob Kraft – who also guides the CHS boys basketball program, said the tournament was “very small” – featuring just three additional schools other than his own (host HSCHS, as well as fellow-visiting Worland Senior HS plus Buffalo); even factoring in some middle schoolers by way of their such division, the whole event had only 35 players.
Come the total results: the Broncs won their part of the tourney among three full boys squads, though the Fillies didn’t actually have enough girls to record a team score. Individually for those particular Cody Broncs: two of them placed in that specific top ten. Christian Eissinger was runner-up at 12 strokes over par – four behind the victorious golfer (who’s from Thermop – Hudson Roling; he shot a plus-eight and has now prevailed in a trio of events straight by this time of year), while Logan Schutzman turned out fourth at 16 over – eight back. Of those Fillies: a duo also wound up over that corresponding top ten. Sydney Pomajzl triumphed with a plus-22, which beat second-place teammate Logan Oberheu at 27 above par by five strokes. Coach Kraft had added that everyone competed through rain showers, but he was proud of his kids for their approach despite the bad conditions – their attitudes were quite good.
CHS’ campaigns halt before summer break on the road again at this Friday’s tournament among Lander.
