Carbon High boys golf takes second at Juab
The Carbon High boy's golf team finished in second place to North Sanpete at a Region 12 match in Juab on August 27.
Carbon finished in a tie with Richfield finishing with a total of 335 at the match. North Sanpete took first place by shooting 330.
Andrew Kotter, a senior, led the Dinos with a low round of 81. He was followed by Ryker Smith (84), Tyler Moynier and Kaden Alderson (85), Ryan Gagon (86) and Kasey Moynier (96).
CHS Head Coach Tom King said the Dinos are still in first place overall in Region 12 by four strokes over Richfield.
King said he was pleased with Tyler Moynier's play, considering he has never played with the team up until the match.
"That's encouraging to see the young players stepping up for us," said King.
King said he feels the team can lower their scores by chipping and putting better during play, which could help separate them from the pack in region play.
The team is also dealing with the problem of not having a driving range to practice at. King said the driving range at the Carbon Country Club is still closed after recent flooding carried dirt, rocks and debris all over the range.
Carbon will host a Region 12 match on Thursday starting at 11 a.m. at the Carbon Country Club.
"The kids need to play as they know how to play and try not to put too much pressure on themselves to do well," said King.
