Carbon golf shines

It has not been a great spring for golf, weather wise that is. For the Carbon girl's golf team, they are doing well despite the lousy weather. Due to Roosevelt's golf course having problems, Carbon hosted an 18-hole tournament last Wednesday. Nine holes counting as the Carbon tournament and nine holes counting as Union's tournament.

Girls golf uses a modified Stableford scoring system; par equals fivepoints, birdies and bogies add one point or subtract one point respectively, up to double eagle eight points or quadruple bogie one point.

Even in less than desirable weather, Carbon High's Lady Dinos played wonderfully. For the first nine, Kelcy Otani, Lexi Gagon and Samantha Tatton led the team to a second place finish with a team total, of 93 points just four points. They finished behind Park City who had 97 points; Union was third with 63 and Wasatch fourth with 52.

The back nine was Union's tournament and Carbon roared back to win with a team score of 102. Park City was second with 90, Wasatch third with 59 and Union fourth with 52 points.

Kelcy Otani again led the team scoring 37 points, Lexi Gagon finished with 31 and Audra Eaquinto made 34 points.

Coach Kenji Otanis remarked, "The entire team was amazing, digging deep and playing hard during the worst wind and rain of the storm. Combining the 18 holes, Kelcy Otani took medalist honors with a score of 71 points. She tied on the front and won on the back nine. Lexi Gagon was as solid as ever, delivering 60 points.

"And new team members Samantha Tatton and Audra Eaquinto really came through when we needed them with 30 and 34 points. But we couldn't have done it without Sam Jones and Cassandra Hawkinson rounding out the six varsity girls.

"I am so excited about this team and this program. Last year we had six girls and now we have twelve very talented and committed golfers. With these girls, up is the only direction they know and I have no doubt, with two tournaments left in region play, up is where Carbon's Girls Golf Team is going, at the State Tournament," Otani added to sum things up.
