Panther golf third at Worland

Written by Tribune Staff

Team shoots a 338 to begin spring

The Powell High School golf team placed third out of eight teams at its first meet of the spring calendar. The Panthers saw action at Worland last Friday.

“We faced some very cool weather, but this gives us a good benchmark to work from,” noted Panther coach Troy Hildebrand. “I was very pleased with our team score of 338 for our first tournament of the spring.”

Zane Bushnell fired a career-best tournament score of 78 to finish in a tie for sixth-place overall. Bowen Prestwich also shot a personal tournament-low of 83.

“It was really nice to see Zane get this spring season off on such a good foot,” said Hildebrand. “Hopefully he will carry this play and confidence with him from here on. Bowen has such a steady demeanor and attitude about him as a freshman that I can really only see him continuing to get better.”

Brian Morse added a round of 88. Bryan Borcher shot an 89. Jeremy Paul had a solid round with a 95 and Colter Adolph rounded out the Panthers' lineup with a 108.

“Hopefully this will be Brian's starting point for the season and summer and he'll just improve from here,” said Hildebrand. “Bryan has been a vital part of our program the last four years and his leadership and work ethic are real positives to have around our younger players. It is really nice to have Bryan continue with us this spring.”

The Panther golfers will return to action on Friday with a 10 a.m. meet at Thermopolis.

“As the weather warms up and the courses get in better condition, we will certainly be able to better gauge where we are and what areas we really need to focus on,” said Hildebrand.
