The Grand County High School Red Devil boys golf team clinched the championship title at the Region 15 playoffs in Monticello on Oct. 1, and team members are feeling confident as they head into the Utah State Championship tournament this week.

During the Region 15 championship tournament played at the Hideout golf course, the Red Devil team had four out of six players place in the top 10, including GCHS junior Jace Woodard, who came home with the title of Region 15 overall champion.

Woodard shot an 85 at the region championship tournament.

Fellow teammate, junior Tyson Saggboy shot a 99, taking second place at region. GCHS sophomore Brayden Ward took sixth place, and senior Hunter Peterson took eighth place at the tournament.

Region rankings are determined through the combined scores of each player at every region tournament and the region championship tournament.

Two other Red Devil boy’s golf players competed in the tournament but did not place in the top 10. They were Chris Taysom, a junior, and Derek Lema, a senior.

“There are a couple of teams out there that are tough, but in the end I think it will be really good as long as the boys can stay focused this week,” GCHS head golf coach Aaron Woodard said of the upcoming state tournament.

The Red Devil golf team is scheduled to compete for the state championship title during the tournament at Palisade State Park in Sterling on Wednesday, Oct. 9 and Thursday, Oct. 10.

“It will take a bit but we have a really good chance at state.” said GCHS head golf coach Woodard.

The Red Devil golf team was schedule to travel to Richfield on Tuesday, Oct. 8, to prepare for the state tournament and will travel to Sterling later Tuesday evening.
