After playing tournaments in Billings last Thursday, and Laurel Friday, the Nolan Lotton and the Havre High golf teams will now look forward to the postseason, and that starts with the Ponies hosting the 2018 Central A Divisional Tournament Friday morning at Prairie Farms Golf Course. Those who advance, will head to the Class A state tournament next weekend in Hamilton.

The Havre High golf teams are now headed for the postseason. The Blue Ponies wrapped up regular season play with two tournaments last week.

Last Thursday, Havre was in Billings for the Billings Central Invitational at Eaglerock Golf Club, and Friday, the Ponies played the Laurel Invite at the Laurel Country Club.

Both tournaments were tough as all of the Billings Class AA schools, as well as eastern A powers and other AA teams, like Bozeman High, were in attendance.

In Billings, the Havre girls got an outstanding sixth-place finish from senior Teagan Fee, who fired a round of 89. Jocelyn Staples shot 102 and Kinzee Peterson finished at 111. It was a good trip for Fee, who also posted a Top 10 Friday at Laurel. At the tough Laurel Country Club, Fee shot a 92 to place ninth in a field dominated by Class AA players. Peterson added a 102, while Staples shot 119 and Sophie Kirkpatrick finished with a 120. The Havre girls finished eighth in Laurel with a team total of 433.

Junior Tyrel Kjersem led the Pony boys Thursday in Billings with a 91, while sophomore Josh Warp shot 92. Caleb Chambliss shot 98, while Nolan Lotton finished with a 106 and Clint Owens shot 114.

In Laurel, Kjersem and Chambliss each shot 95, while Warp came in with a 99. Lotton finished at 104 and Owens carded a 107 as Havre finished 10th with a team total of 405.

Now, the Blue Ponies get to play on their home course one last time when they host the 2018 Central A Divisional. The tournament will be held Friday at Prairie Farms Golf Course, where the top two teams and top 15 players from the boys and girl's fields will move on to the Class A state tournament next weekend in Hamilton.
