High school duffers compete at zones

    Drumheller student athletes opened the school sports season by competing at the golf zone championships.
    In all, two teams from DCHS and two teams from St. Anthony’s School competed in tournament play on Tuesday, September 14 in Carstairs, facing blustery conditions.
    The DCHS girl’s team of Nikki Broom, Paula Wade, Karissa Reid and Ally Campbell played well. According to coach Dan Hird, they missed out on a bronze medal by four strokes.
    The boy’s team of Sean Davies, Jarred Potter, Shane Gwinner and Mitchell Toffan finished in the middle of the pack. Hird says because members of the boys team all play hockey and were busy with fall tryouts, they were not able to get much practice time on the links.
    At St. Anthony’s, Madison Colberg finished in the top 10. Jessie Carrier also competed well. Michelle Fournier coached the girl’s team.
    Jay Mulgrew coached the boy’s team made up of Brandon Gruber, Andrew Stedman, Conner Bosch and Ryan Cardamone. They also played well finishing in the pack with all bettering a score of 100.
