Lopes Golf wrapped up the fall season on familiar ground as they held their fall tournament this past Thursday and Friday, October 11-12, at the Spreading Antlers Golf Course.
Illness and injury has plagued the Lopes team during the fall season and struck once again at home. Sophomore Keith Mergenthal suffered a back injury on the first day that took him out of the tournament, leaving only two Lopes in play as the season came to a close. Joey Penovich finished with a two-day total of 161 (79-82) and Alex Acosta-Hernandez with 166 (82-84).
Eastern Wyoming College won the tournament with a score of 586 (+26). McCook Community College came in second at 597 (+37), followed by Northeastern Junior College and Otero Junior College tied in third with 628 (+68), and Central Wyoming College took fifth with 631 (+71). Lamar was unable to earn a team score with only two players earning scores.
The team will return for the spring season in March.
