September 18, 2014 I The Lovell Chronicle 1 9 in top DAVID PECK Lovell junior Hunter Tippetts tees off during a recent practice session at the Foster Gulch Golf Course. Tippetts placed fourth at the Powell Invitational Friday. BY SAM SMITH The Lovell High School golf team traveled to Powell Friday for the Powell Invitational, which was shortened to a one-day, 18-hole tournament due to bad weather condi- tions on Thursday. "The Thursday round was cancelled due to inclement weather," Coach Jason Beal said. "On Friday, we started a hour late due to a frost delay." The Bulldogs boys squad shot a team total 377 to place third behind Thermopolis by just five strokes and 23 strokes ahead of fourth-place Cody. Lander won the tournament with a score of 367, fol- lowed by Thermopolis at 372 and Lovell at 377. Cody re- corded a score of 400, Powell 466. Junior Hunter Tippetts was the top scorer for the Bulldogs, placing fourth with a 42-44=86, just two strokes behind Dylon Puroll of Lander and five strokes ahead of senior teammate McKay Baxendale, who shot a 48-43=91 to place fifth. "Hunter and McKay had a good round and scored well," Beal said. Other golfers competing for Lovell were senior CJ Murphey, who shot a 50-51=101, sophomore Lane Hoover, who shot a 52-57=109, and senior Justin Mickelson, who recorded a 60-58=118. Competing for the Lovell girls squad was Cassie Col- vin, who shot a 66-69=135. The Bulldogs are in Jackson this week for the 3A West Regional Tournament. Play began Wednesday and wraps up Thursday.
