After trailing the North Sanpete Hawks in the region standings for the past few weeks, the Grand County High School boys’ golf team shot its way back to the top spot last Thursday, Sept. 7 at the Millsite course in Ferron.

The Red Devils entered the match a full 20 strokes behind the Hawks in the region standings, which are based on each team’s cumulative scores throughout the season. However, Grand shot a blistering 307 in Ferron, while North Sanpete was a distant second with 335.

The rest of the region teams finished as follows: host team Emery was third with 337, Richfield was fourth with 340, South Sevier was fifth with 344, and Manti and San Juan tied for sixth with 349.

All four of Grand’s top four placers shot under 80, with senior Masen Ward leading the way with a 73, followed by fellow senior Alec Williams, who shot a 76. Senior Brendon Woodard and freshman Rafe Saunders each recorded a 79.

Also competing for Grand at the match were Kane Scherer (82), Jaxen Saunders (85), Taylor Torgerson (87) and Luke Williams (98).

Last week’s 28-stroke win means that the Red Devils own a slim eight-stroke edge in the Region 15 standings with one regular-season match left to play on Wednesday, Sept. 13 at Cove View in Richfield, hosted by South Sevier.
