The Lady Plainsmen came in fourth place after a 912 total over 36 holes. Kelly Walsh won the girls team title with a score of 720. That was 22 strokes better than Scottsbluff, NE.

Senior Amanda Warren carded a 181 and finished in seventh place. Shelby Poynter of Scottsbluff was the medalist with a 149, a 14 stroke victory.

The Plainsmen ended up fifth. They fired a two-day total of 697. The Trojans completed the team sweep, as KW fired a 607 last Thursday and Friday at the Airport Golf Course.

Junior Colby Clay fired a 164 and came in 16th place. The boys’ medalist was Central’s Jared Edeen, who won by 10 strokes with a 140 total.

Laramie heads to Douglas for their next action on the links Thursday and Friday.
