Laramie High School Golf Makes Their One Stop at Home
Laramie High School’s golf teams host their only home competition of the season Thursday and Friday at Jacoby Golf Course with the Laramie Invite.
This marks the third tournament for LHS this season. Head coach Kurk Aegerter has taken his young squad to Cheyenne and Sheridan.
Laramie welcomes Cheyenne Central, Cheyenne East, Cheyenne South, Rawlins and Rock Springs for 36 holes of competition. They teed off at 9 a.m. Thursday, while Friday’s 18 holes features a shotgun start.
Aegerter says how they take advantage of the home course is their knowledge of the greens at Jacoby.
“The greens are going to be fast, they look like. What we’ve been playing so far have been really slow and very grainy. So, I’m excited to see how we do on the greens; if we can pick up some strokes there.”
Their strategy is simple says Aegerter, just keep it in play.
Laramie’s golf teams have one more tournament before state in two weeks.
Here’s what else is happening for LHS student-athletes outside of football this weekend.
The Laramie Lady Plainsmen (8-2) begin 4A East Conference action at home. They will host Sheridan Friday at 6 p.m. and Gillette Saturday at noon.
These will be the first home matches of the season, and it begins a four-match home-stand over the next couple of weeks for LHS.
Laramie runs at the Liberty Bell Invitational in Littleton, CO Friday afternoon.
The Plainsmen are the defending Division II team champs, even though LHS is slotted, based upon enrollment, for Division III. The Lady Plainsmen were 13th out of 21 squads in Division 2B a year ago.
The boy’s will race is at 4:25 p.m., while the ladies will start at 5:08 p.m. on the Heritage High School cross country course.
Girl’s Swimming and Diving
The Lady Plainsmen will start the weekend at home with a meet against Evanston, Green River and Sheridan at 5 p.m. Friday at the new LHS Natatorium. This is a triple dual with LHS against all three.
Saturday they head on the road for the Bison Invite at South High School. Competition begins with diving at 8 a.m. followed by the swimming events.
It’s on the road for the rest of the season for LHS Tennis. The teams head to Gillette for a dual Friday at 4 p.m., and then it’s off to Sheridan at 10 a.m. on Saturday.
The Lady Plainsmen are 5-1, while the Plainsmen are 4-2 in dual action during the 2016 season.
