MONTE VISTA – What was originally scheduled to be a six-team tournament eventually dwindled to just two teams, basically making the Monte Vista Invitational a dual meet between the Lady Pirates and Alamosa Friday at the Monte Vista Golf Course.
For the second straight day, the Lady Mean Moose came out on top as they scored 330 strokes compared to 341 for Monte Vista.
Tying for first place were Alamosa’s Kailyn Vigil and Monte Vista’s Brooke Hoffstaetter who both shot at 105.
The rest of the Lady Mean Moose finished in the Top 10. Kayla Medina was third with a 108, Hallie Henry was fifth with a 117, Anika Najera tied for seventh with a 128, and Sienna Gallegos tied for ninth with a 132.
The remainder of the Lady Pirates saw Annika Holder finish fourth with a 115, Ellaree Rockey placed sixth with a 121, Presley Lozoya tied for seventh with a 128, and Anastasia Sanchez tied for ninth with a 132. Also golfing for Monte Vista were Kiera Sanchez who was 11th with a 133, Allessa Archuleta who was 12th with a 137, Dulce Maldonado and Jordan Feldkamp who both tied for 13th with a 142, and Ana Arroyo who was 15th with a 145.
Both teams will return to Cattails Golf Course on Tuesday for the Class 3A Region 4 Tournament. Other teams expected to compete include Aspen, Colorado Academy, Glenwood Springs, Grand Valley, Gunnison, Meeker, Moffat County, Montezuma-Cortez and Vail Mountain.
The tournament begins at 10 a.m.
The top two teams in the standings, plus the top 13 individuals not on the top two teams will automatically qualify for the Class 3A State Tournament, which will take place May 31-June 1 at the Broadlands in Broomfield.
