The Grand County High School boys’ golf team placed second to North Sanpete in last week’s Region 15 match held at The Hideout course in Monticello.

Grand’s top four golfers scored a total of 323, which was 10 strokes behind North Sanpete’s total of 313. Grand now trails North Sanpete by five strokes in the overall region standings, according to GCHS head coach Aaron Woodard.

“Our kids did pretty well. North Sanpete just did better,” Woodard said.

Grand’s top four were senior Brendon Woodard, who shot a 78, junior Kane Scherer, who shot a 79, senior Masen Ward, who shot an 80 and junior Taylor Torgerson, who shot an 86.

Also golfing for Grand during the match but not scoring in the top four were Jaxen Saunders (89), Rafe Saunders (91), Nolan Ramirez (94) and Teddy Park (99).

Red Devil senior Alec Williams missed last week’s match due to a family vacation, but should be back in action this week, his coach said.

Also at Monticello, Manti took third as a team with a score of 354. Host team San Juan finished in a fourth-place tie with Manti, with each school scoring 360. South Sevier took sixth with a 363 and Emery placed seventh with a 377.

This week, the Red Devils are scheduled to travel to the Palisade Golf Course in Sterling, near Manti, for yet another Region 15 match on Wednesday, Aug. 30, starting at 11 a.m.
