10 I The Lovell Chronicle I May 3, 2012 PATti CARPENTER Cody King tees off at hole No. 1 during the Lovell Invitational Golf Tournament held on Saturday, April 21. Wet and wild day in Powell throws golfers off their game BY PATTI CARPENTER It was a cloudy, windy and wet day for golf on Fri- day when the Bulldog golf- ers traveled to Powell for. a tournament against mostly 3A and 4A schools. Lovell and Thermopolis were the only 2A teams in the tourna- ment. "It wasn't the best weath- er for golfing but at least we got to play," said coach Dev- on Parks. "It was wet, it was cold and once your hands get cold it's hard to get a proper grip on the club. Everyone's scores were lower than they normally are because of the conditions." The boys team tied for fourth place with Buffalo with a score of 380. The two girls representing Lovell didn't have enough golfers on their team to place. "The team could have played better but they didn't," said Parks. "The con- ditions were bad and it af- fected some of the players." Cody King placed ninth. He shot 49-39=88. "He had a really bad front 9, if he would have cleaned that up, he would have been at around fourth or fifLh place," said Parks. "Sometimes if you have one bad shot it can take you out of your mental game. It just took him a while to get used to the conditions." Chase Tippetts and Brandon Wolvington had the exact same score of 47-47=94. "The two are pretty much inseparable," said Parks, not- ing their similar ability level. CJ Murphey had a "rough day," said Parks. Murphey shot 52- 52=104, It was an "average day" for McKay Baxendale, ac- cording to Parks. Baxendale shot 61-50=111. Only two girls were able to play in the tournament. Sophomore Journee Burton shot 66-64=130. It was her first tournament of the year. Cassie Colvin shot 75- 68=143. Colvin actually im- proved a little bit, said Parks, who noted that she is still "getting to know the system." "It looks like the weather affected the top ended golfers the most," said Parks. "The top-end golfers don't typical- ly hit stray balls that oten, they don't lose their balls or drop them usually. So, in the bad weather, when they start to hit out of bounds and such, it throws them off. Overall it seems to affect everyone a lit- tle bit." The tournament that was scheduled in Buffalo for Saturday was cancelled due to inclement weather. Next up, the Bulldog golfers will golf in Cody on Saturday. Only the under- classmen will play because it is also prom weekend. King, Tippetts, Wolvington and Frost will not be playing. "It's a long course over " " r there, saldPa ks."We'lljust be working on everyoiae's in- dividual game. Some have never played there before." The Regional Tourna- ment will be played in Lusk the following weekend: GRIZZLIES termediate hurdles, Beemer said. Mikaela Hocker placed second in the 100-meter hur- dles at 18.19 and third in the 300 hurdles with a time of 57.72. "Hocker went over eight hurdles three-stepping and that girl (Dani Haverkamp) beat her by 1/100th of a sec- ond," Beemer said. "It was a photo fmish. She barely leaned her out. In the 300s, Haley's 56.94 is not a bad time in that wind. There was probably a 10-mile-per-hour wind on that back stretch." The team of Strom, Mi- kaela Hocker, Haley Stauffer and Brianna Hocker placed second in the 400-meter relay continued from page 9 with a time of 59.14. Brianna Hocker was strong in the triple jump, placing second with a jump of 29-5, and Stauffer placed second in the high jump, clearing 4-0. Alana Senn placed third in the discus with a throw of 72-0, and Jennifer Parker was sixth at 56-1/2. In the shot, Parker placed fourth with a throw of 26-9, and Senn was sixth at 21-6. The Grizzlies will travel to Thermopolis Friday for the Thermop Pre-Regional track meet. Action begins at 1 p.m. The 2A West Regional will be held in Riverton May 11-12.

Endurance riders hold first event of 2012 The first ride of the 2012 season in the Big Horn Basin for the Big Horn 100 organization was held at Wardell Reservoir four miles South of Otto on April 28. Nineteen riders from Wyoming, Montana and South Dakota took on the challenge of a less than a perfect day. A cold wind was blowing, but spirits were high. The skies were cloudy and signs of possible rain were every- where, but to the joy of the riders, never came to pass. At the end of the 25-mil- er, nine horses successfully completed the course for a completion award includ- ing three first-time riders. Only one horse was pulled for lameness. Nine horses and riders also complet- ed the 50 mile ride, which was a 100 percent comple- tion. Melissa Shepherd of New Underwood, S.D., reached the recovery cri- teria first for the 25 miles and claimed the fastest time honor. Connie Fol- lensbee of Buffalo walked away with the coveted Best Condition Award for hav- ing the horse judged to be the most fit. First-time rid- ers were Jean Keffeler and Dawn Basini of Livingston, Mont., and Cheri Bischoff of Lovell. Others to com- plete were Cheri Hoffman of Lovell, Sierra Kahl of Gil- lette, Dorothy Sue Phillips of Powell and LuAnn Rod of Belgrade, Mont. First to cross the line in the 50-mile distance was Kay Johnston of Alber- ton, Mont., followed by Bill Miller of Fairfield, Mont. in third place was Jenni- fer Kaplan of Arlee, Mont., followed by Jeanette Tol- man of Otto and Lisa Cook of Burlington. Drin Beck- er of Polaris, Mont., was next and was awarded the Best Condition Award. Ralph Tronstad of Rozet, Cindy Collins of Cody, and Mary Ruebush of Bozeman, Mont., rounded out the final finishers. The next ride on the lo- cal calendar is May 12, also at the Wardell Reservoir.
