GRANTS - Hunting, football and soccer are the traditional Fall sports that come to mind as the high school year begins. However, golf is taking flight with many students who are participating at one level or another.
Golf at GHS had their first tournament on Monday, Sept. 17, at Los Alamos. Approximately 115 golfers from around the state participated in the tournament under sunny and slightly breezy conditions. Current number one, Joseph Trujillo, a senior at GHS, shot a 77 and took fourth place. Trujillo said, “It was good to qualify, however, my play itself was not the caliber it should be at this point.” Trujillo also earned a leg at this tournament. Trujillo birdied hole number nine, a dog leg right par five and he also birdied number 10 a short dog leg right par 4. He went on to birdy hole number 12.
Freshman Daniel Ramirez shot an 89 and was 11 off from getting a leg. Austin Resrepo shot a 101 to round out the top three for the boys team. Christina Moleres shot a 102 and was ten off from making her leg.
Head Coach Seth Ward said, “Joseph Trujillo, Daniel Ramirez, Jade Tanuz and Billy Ken Rangel will place well and get close to a team leg.” The golf team will play at Riverview Golf Course on Sept. 24 for their next tournament.
