Kemmerer golf plays at Evanston, prepares for home tournament


This past week four teams competed in the Evanston Spring Invite at the Purple Sage Golf Course on Friday, April 20.

Fifty boys and girls competed in the one-day event under cool and windy skies.

In the team event the host Evanston boys finished first and the Rangers were second with a very fine score of 368. Green River took third place.

This was a great effort by all the players. The weather was the biggest challenge for the team with very cold and windy conditions early on in the day, but it warmed up the second half when the wind dropped.

Both the boys and girls played well over the challenging Purple Sage course.

I am hoping the weather improves so that practices can be more productive, but we know the Kemmerer course will be ready for this week’s meet.

The Kemmerer Ranger boys were led by Ty Hysell with 88. Next for the Rangers was junior Rayce Kindschuh at 89. Ben Wergin shot a 93 followed by Brandon Banister at 98. Rounding out the team scoring was Shawn Crank 118.

Three boys made the trip competing in the J.V. portion of the meet. Leading the J.V. was Brandon Crank at 112; next was Kaysen Smith in his first meet with a 122. Rounding out the team scoring was Easton Countryman at 129.

Six girls made the trip and the Kemmerer Ranger girls’ team finished third with a 352 total.

Leading the girls was Lineea Ryrman at 102; next for the girls was Catherine Rily at 123. Sophomore Charity Chamberlain, playing in her first meet, shot a 127. Freshman Kinzee Painter shot a 128. Jenna Krell came in with a 130. Rounding out the team was Aspen Pollard at 133.

The Kemmerer Rangers host a golf tournament at home at Fossil Island Golf Course on Friday, April 27, at 10:00 a.m.
