Sophomore Whitney Grant placed eighth in the 100 at 13.92. Junior Kim Shum- way added the 800 me- ters to her repertoire and won the race with a time of 2:28.97, pre-qualifying for State.

She attacks the first three hurdles well, and if she can stay in rhythm longer it will help her even more."

DAVID PECK CJ Murphey chips a shot onto the green last fall at the State Golf Tournament held at Foster Gulch. Murphey was the top boys golfer in Worland this past Friday shooting a 95. LHS golfers off to a good start BY PATTI CARPENTER The Lovell High School golf team traveled to Worland on Friday to compete in their first tourna- ment of the spring season. Coach Devon Parks said he was pleased overall with the performance of those who played in the tournament and was pleasantly surprised to see most of the returning golfers "pick up right where they left off." CJ Murphey was the top golfer competing on the boys team with 50-45=95. McKay Baxendale shot 50-52=102. The two were the only varsity players competing on the boys team. Junior varsity player Dylan Hultgren shot 57- 55=112. It was his first tournament and literally the first time he played a full round of golf. Justin Mickelson, also a junior varsity player, shot 69-55=124. Parks said he thought Mickelson was a little rusty after the winter break and fully ex- pects him to do better at future tournaments. Lauren Hinckley was the only girl to compete from the girls team. Hinckley is new to the team and already showing great promise with a sixth place win at the tournament for her score of 43-52=95. "To see that 43 is huge," said Parks. "It means she can get below 90." Although Hinckley has been pla3fing :g01! nel; whole life, she has never iSla'yd for tli high school  team. c Next up, the team will travel to Sheridan on Fri- day. Parks expects more members to participate. "I'm excited about how they all played coming out of winter," said Parks. "There's no where to go but up from here." The team will host a tournament at home on the Foster Gulch Golf Course on April 20.

Tip: Walk Single File: Unless you are on a sidewalk separated from the road or a wide bike lane, you should walk in single file. This is especially important on a road with lots curves, where traffic has only a split second chance of seeing you before hitting you. While it can be enjoyable to walk down the road two to three abreast chatting merrily, drivers don't expect it and you may lose your best walking buddies. Stay Aware of Bikes and Runners: Share the road and path with bikes and runners. Bike riders should alert you when approaching from behind with a bike bell or a "passing on the left/right:' Listen for them, and move to walk single file, allowing them to pass safely. Runners should also call out for passing. Bike- walker collisions can result in broken bones or head injury for either -- and you aren't wearing a helmet.
