Golfers close out regular season in impressive fashion

After a successful regular season, the Three Forks High School Golf team will open the postseason on May 7 at the Divisional Tournament at the Old Works Golf Course in Anaconda.

The Wolves ended the regular season with a busy week of action, including competing on April 29 in Shelby, hosting their annual home tournament on April 30 at the Headwaters Golf Course in Three Forks, and with a sneak peek of Old Works at the Anaconda Invitational on May 2.

Head Coach Aaron Harkins said the Three Forks teams performed well in Shelby and at the home meet.

Harkins said senior Ari Judd is continuing her outstanding play. Judd finished first in Shelby with an 80 and was second at the Three Forks Tournament.

"Claire Van Vleet and Paige Lien are also finding their strides late in the season, with Paige carding her season-best (then) 103 in Shelby and Claire getting another new PR with a 101 at home. Fallon Cardwell has stepped in and occupied the role of our 4th/5th varsity girl, and we couldn't be more proud of how much improvement and grit she has shown," Harkins said.

On the boys' side, Harkins said good things are happening, too, including shooting a team-best score of 343 in Shelby. Tallyn McCauley finished seventh in Shelby with a season-best 82, and Trey Miller added an 83 to finish 13th.

"Continuing his good play, Trey Miller tied fellow Wolves golfer Devon Long with an 80 at our home meet, with each earning T-3 honors, and Hunter Feddes wasn't far behind with a smooth 82. Carson Woodland rounded out the boys' team, and it seems that he is starting to find his groove just at the right time before the postseason hits," Harkins said.

Three Forks was in fine form on May 2 in Anaconda. The girls finished in first place with a one-stroke victory over Florence.

Judd finished in second place with an 86, Lien had a season-best 98, Kennedy Rogers finished with a 106, Van Vleet carted a 107, and Cardwell ended with a 121.

Miller led the boys' team at Old Works with an 80, Hunter Feddes had an 83, Long fished with an 87, Woodland had a 95, and McCauley ended the day with a 103.

With the postseason nearing, Harkins said they hope the team can make last-minute adjustments and get their minds right, hoping to earn a spot at the State Tournament on May 14 and 15 in Shelby.
