The Lamar Community College golf team traveled to Riverton, Wyoming, this past weekend for Region IX tournament play at Central Wyoming College.

The tournament, scheduled for September 14-15, was cut short due to weather.  While Thursday play began in 78 degrees and light showers, Friday was cancelled due to heavy rains.

Robert Heiny and Joey Penovich finished neck-and-neck, Heiny with a score of 81 and Penovich with 82. Kyle Colen finished with a score of 85 and Geoffrey Kozlowski with 90. 

Cesar Shinall, who led the team in the first season tournament, struggled in the weather and finished with a 97.

The Lopes finished in sixth place as a team with a one-day total of 338 (+50), only one stroke behind the fifth place Otero Junior College.

McCook Community College won the tournament with a team score of 310 (+22) with Eastern Wyoming coming in second place with 315 (=27).  Central Wyoming took third 321 (+33), while Northeastern took fourth 330 (+42) and Otero took fifth 337 (+49).
