Blue Pony golfers play well on Electric City's tough courses

In just the second tournament of the young season, the Havre High Blue Pony golfers are already turning in some impressive scores.

After opening the season last week in Havre, the Central A Ponies took to the links in Great Falls on Monday and Tuesday. The Ponies faced some extremely tough competition, facing the likes of Kalispell Glacier, Billings Skyview, Billings West, CMR, Billings Senior, Butte, Bozeman, Missoula Hellgate, Helena Capital and many more. Kalispell Glacier took the boys top spot with a two day score of 584, while the Billings West girls took the top spot with a two day total of 682.

The HHS boys shot a 337 on Monday and a 345 on Tuesday, finishing with a total of 682, while the girls' final score wasn't reported. The HHS boys played the famed Meadowlark Country Club on Monday and Eagles Falls on Tuesday, while the girls played Eagles Falls Monday and tackled MCC on Tuesday.

Freshman Jeff Miller already had a career tournament. He didn't go into Great Falls as the No. 1, but did lead the Ponies with a two-day score of 183. Miller shot a 94 on Monday, and bettered himself for an 89 on Tuesday. Fellow freshman, Jerod Boles also had a solid outing, finishing with a 185 (89-96), while Spencer Ross finished with a 187 (97-90). Ramsey Drew also shot a 192 (107-85) and David Denny shot a 197 (104-93).

On the girls side of things, the Ponies had just three girls finish the tournament.

Katie Beck shot a 110 on Monday, but didn't turn in a score on Tuesday. But despite just the three finishers, the Ponies also turned in some decent scores in their second outing.

Boston Swensen led the Ponies with a 210 (94-89), while Randi Gabrielsen followed suit with a 219 (115-104). Freshman Payton Howard had a solid day on Monday, shooting 104, but slid down the ranks some with a 120 on Tuesday to finish strong with a 224.

Havre is back in action on Friday, when the Ponies travel to Browning.
