It was a case of sweet victory for the Grand County Red Devil boys’ golf team last week as they took the UHSAA 2A Region 15 championship at Carbon Country Club in Helper.

The victory came as Grand County shot a 325 on 18 holes, and although the North Sanpete Hawks outscored the Red Devils, shooting a 312 to win the day, head coach Aaron Woodard’s golfers took the championship based off their season score of 2,503, compared to the Hawks’ score of 2,524, to win the region trophy.

The win sends the Red Devils to the state tournament in Richfield on Oct. 4-5 at Cove View Golf Course.

While the Red Devils took 2nd overall at the meet, four Grand County golfer medaled individually in the top-12 among competitors; Alec Williams took 3rd place, on the par-70 course, with Masen Ward and Brendon Woodard taking the No. 4 and 5 spots, respectively. Jaxen Saunders shot for 10th place.
