ALAMOSA — A frantic week for both Alamosa and Monte Vista golf came to close at Cattails Golf Course Friday afternoon. The Moose placed second at their home invitational shooting a team total 243, Monte Vista placed fifth at Cattails on Friday combining for a team total of 284.
It’s been a busy week for both the Moose and Pirates. Alamosa attended four meets over the course of the week accounting for a quarter of their season. Monte Vista was equally busy with three meets over the course of the week which according to their schedule listed accounts for a third of their total season. The boys played through a different looking golf course due to a little flood damage possibly contributing to some larger totals on some holes.
Alamosa got a nice tight grouping out of their top three competitors on Friday, seniors Brenden Crowther, Colton Liddell and Hunter Smith. Which was a big part of the team placing second. Crowther led the pack taking first on the team and sixth overall scoring a 79 total going just 10 over par on the course. Crowther was comfortable at home, the Alamosa senior parred on seven holes and birdied on an eighth. Two strokes back in seventh place overall was Colton Liddell with a total score of 81. Liddel did pretty well in his own right getting par on eight holes. And in eighth place was Hunter Smith, Smith put up a total of 83 but managed to register eight holes on par Friday.
For Monte Vista Luke Hoffstaetter kept his play at a high level as it has been all week. Hoffstaetter finished fifth overall with a total score of 78, nine strokes over par. Hoffstaetter was on par for eleven of the 18 holes getting on a hot streak on the back nine parring on holes 10 through 16. Casin Holder and Jameson Obberick rounded out the Monte Vista top three registering 98 and 100 total scores respectively.
With a wild week in the books things will slow down considerably for both clubs. Monte Vista will be back next Tuesday Aug. 20th when they attend at the Cañon City Tournament after that they won’t come back for a week and a half for the Pueblo County Tournament, which is Alamosa’s next time back. The Moose and Pirates will both be on hand for Pueblo County’s Tournament Aug. 30th.
