Pahrump Valley boys golf ends busy week

Trojans boys golf had a busy three days last week as they competed in one invitational and a Sunset League match.

The Trojans were at home at Mountain Falls on April 17 and took the Sunset match, beating Western 438 to 595.

Austen Ancell won medalist with a 4-over-par 72. Jared Smith was second at 77. The other top golfers for Pahrump were Craig Moore (87), Michael McDougall (89), Case Murphy (91) and Kolby Lindberg (95).

The Trojans were at the Southern Nevada Invitational on Wednesday and Thursday at Southern Highlands golf club for two rounds of golf with some of the top golfers in the region.

“Ancell finished in sixth place,” Trojans coach Bob Hopkins said. “Only two golfers from Nevada beat Austen. The rest were from California.”

The top scorer was golfer Dylan Fritz from Coronado High School and he shot a 5-over par 77 on Wednesday and a 66 on Thursday for a 143. Ancell shot a 149 for the two-day tournament.

As a team, Pahrump shot a 699, finishing ninth out of 10 schools.

The other top golfers for Pahrump at the two-day tourney were Kolby Lindberg (178), Case Murphy (186), and Michael McDougall (196).

Hopkins was satisfied with the scores considering there were high winds on both days of the invitational.

“We had some bright spots. Southern Highlands is really tough,” the coach said. “Kolby shot a low score of the year. We took five kids and counted four. Craig Moore had a bit of trouble for he kept hooking. It was a tough two days. The wind raised havoc with every part of the game.”
