With a season that only lasts about a month, the Glenrock High School golf teams put in a quarter of their seasons in just one busy week. The improving bunch competed in three tournaments last week where plenty of experience on the course was accomplished.
In fact, the teams played all three tournaments in a five-day span.
By the weekend, the Herders were 54 holes better than the week before and look to carry the improvements and momentum into the final three weeks of play.
The busy week ended at the Kendrick Invite where Gavin Thornock led the boy’s team by placing 12th overall with a round of 99.
Tongue River’s Braxton Tremain was tops at 84.
The good day for the Herders did not stop there. Teammates Donnie Taylor and Luke Lythgoe finished tied in the top half of the standings as they carded a 104 for the afternoon.
Glenrock’s Max Coulter was fourth on the team and just two strokes back with a round of 106, while teammate Lane Masopust inked a 132.
On the girls’ side of the ledger, Glenrock had two athletes in action. 
Bailey Mueller putted a 166 and Jerica Zimmerle was next at 168.
The Herders spent one day in Campbell County competing against the same teams for a round. 
GHS’ Brady Dona was the leader of his pack this time as he carded a 105 to finish 8th overall.
Thornock was on his heels as he came in just one stroke back of Dona with a 106.
Lythgoe was third among the Glenrock group at Gillette Country Club where he held strong with his teammates after he inked a 111.
All five Herders were within 12 strokes which made it a solid team effort.
Taylor was next on the finals list with a round of 116, one ahead of Coulter at 117.
The Glenrock leader shifted again for the one round at Devils Tower.
It was Thornock with the best score this time as he was 10th overall and just 15  strokes behind the leader after putting a 100.
Lythgoe was second among the Herders after he carded a 108 for the day, just seven strokes ahead of Dona at 115.
Taylor was third on the roster as he dished out a 123 to start the week.
Coulter was next for the Herders after posting a 134.
Glenrock will return to action this weekend with another busy schedule. The team will be at Sundance on Friday and finish Saturday at Moorcroft.
