Written by Tribune Staff

Team hopes to host own invite Friday

The Powell High School golf team finished second out of six schools at Thermopolis last Friday. The team posted a score of 330, finishing 10 strokes in back of Cody, but 11 strokes clear of the remainder of the tournament field.

Zane Bushnell continued a strong spring, placing second with a score of 76. Bushnell's total shaved two strokes off his previous competitive low round for his prep career.

Colter Adolph and Bryan Borcher each carded rounds of 84 to finish in a tie for 10th place. According to Powell High School head golf coach Troy Hildebrand, the round was a career best for Adolph and the first top-10 finish of his career.

Rounding out the scores for Powell were Brian Morse with an 86 and Bowen Prestwich with an 89.

“It was very promising to have all five guys come in under 90,” said Hildebrand. “I am looking forward to getting to play at home this Friday. Playing at home is always a nice confidence boost for our players and gives me the chance to get everyone involved in a tournament atmosphere.

“It is nice to see our team score creeping down toward the 320 mark. If we can consistently get there by next fall, we will be giving ourselves a very good chance in every tournament.”
