It was a bittersweet ending for the Gunnison High School (GHS) boys golf team. The Cowboys traveled to River Valley Golf Club on Monday and Tuesday, to compete in the 3A Region 4 regional invitational — hoping to continue the tradition of sending a team to state.

Unfortunately, Wild was the only GHS golfer to qualify, as the cut off was a 86. Pictured here is the GHS regional team: (l-r) Daniel Mikkelson, Wild, Griffin Pederson and Jared Van Hee. Courtesy
