The Grand County High School boys golf team could be on track for a 2013 region title, coaches say. The team has scored several wins and last week took first place overall at a region match at the Millsite golf course in Castle Dale on Tuesday, Sept. 17.

“The kids really came around. They are staying focused,” said coach Aaron Woodard. In the Castle Dale tournament, the Red Devil golf team finished with an overall score of 325. Emery High School’s boys golf team placed second with a score of 335.

GCHS junior Jace Woodard shot a 76 to take first place in the tournament and help the Red Devil golfers secure the win. GCHS junior Tyson Saggboy shot a 79 and junior Chris Taysom shot an 81, while Red Devil sophomore Brayden Ward shot a 90.

Grand’s golf team was scheduled to compete in one more tournament – in Palisade on Tuesday, Sept. 24 – before heading into the region championship tournament in Monticello on Tuesday, Oct. 1.
