Tiger golfers take third at West Woods league meet
ARVADA – A lack of consistency continues to haunt Summit High’s golfers.In a Jeffco League meet at Westwoods Golf Course in Arvada on Tuesday, the Summit High School squad shot a combined 327 to finish a respectable third place. But it was still 22 strokes behind first-place Ralston Valley, a team that shared last year’s league title with Summit.Leading the way for the Tigers was senior Brett Miller, who fired a 77, good enough to tie for third place overall. But on the other end of the score card, Rudi Turrin shot an even 100. Jimmy Keeling (81), Corey Stanton (84) and Sean Miller (85) kept their games in check enough to keep Summit afloat in the team standings. “The guys covered (Turrin) today somewhat, but we still would have liked his 78 or 79,” Summit coach Chris Saunders said. “It’s just one of those things. He got in a funk and couldn’t get out of it.”It was the second consecutive league meet in which Ralston Valley won with a 305.The Tigers had to stay in a hotel overnight Monday night and wake up at 5 a.m. in order to make their 6:45 a.m. tee time.”It’s makes a difference on how everybody plays,” Saunders said of the early start. “Everybody has the same conditions.”Those conditions also included rain for most of the morning and into the afternoon when Summit played in a 4A invite at Wellshire Golf Course in Englewood, the site of the state tournament.Turrin bounced back to shoot 81 at Wellshire, while Brett Miller (81), Stanton (83), Keeling (83) and Sean Miller (91) combined to shoot 329, placing the Tigers 10th overall. “It was good for the kids to play 36 holes in one day and still shoot decent scores,” Saunders said. Summit stays busy this week, playing at the Meadows today and at the Northridge Grizzly Invite on Thursday.Andy Frame can be reached at (970) 668-3998, ext. 236, or at email@example.com.
