Cowboys take fourth at Broken Top

Three Cowboys have career-best rounds as Crook County fires a 331


Three Crook County Cowboys fired career-best rounds as the Cowboys finished fourth at Friday’s Summit Invitational.

The Bend Lava Bears used their depth to win the tournament, which was played at Broken Top Golf Course, with a team round of 304. The Summit Storm was two shots back with a score of 306. Summit’s B team finished third with a score of 330, while the Cowboys finished one shot back with a round of 331.

Ridgeview took fifth with a score of 349. They were followed by Mountain View (373), Redmond (401), and Sisters (472).

“We played pretty danged good golf,” said Crook County Head Coach Zach Lampert following the tournament. “I just know, based on past years, that if you can be around 330 at district you will be in the hunt, and that’s right where we’ve been and we haven’t put it all together yet.”

The Cowboys were led by Kody Kuk, who fired a three-over-par 75.

“Kuk tied for second overall,” said Lampert. “He beat all the Summit kids and that’s their home course, so that’s exciting.”

Ben golfer Ryan DeCastilhos earned medalist honors at the tournament, firing a two-under-par round of 70. Bend’s Max McGee shot a round of 75 to tie Kuk for second.

Mason Tibbs, who has been the Cowboys' most consistent golfer so far this season, was close behind Kuk and McGee, firing a career-best round of 77. Cabe Goehring also posted his best round with an 81. The final scorer for the Cowboys was Tom Harvey with a round of 98. Josh Christian also played in the tournament, but struggled to a score of 105.

“I expect our fourth and fifth golfers to start performing a little better,”?Lampert said. “If we can get four scores under 90 we will be in pretty good shape going forward.”

Lampert was pleased with the performance of the Cowboys, who rebounded from a subpar performance at Pronghorn in the previous tournament (371).

“We beat Ridgeview for the first time this year,” he said. “Overall, I’m happy with the way we’re playing.”

Lampert added that JV golfer Harrison Gish has been playing solid golf, and may move into the varsity rotation, providing the team with additional depth.

The tournament was the first time in several years that the Cowboys have had three golfers fire such low scores on the same day.

“The last time we had two golfers in the 70s was probably three years ago when we got third at state,” Lampert said. “We have another tournament on Monday and hopefully we can put two together.”
