LA finishes its fall slate at Santa Fe

Golf: Osden leads team with a 92, Hobbs’ top player shoots a 4-under

By The Staff

The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys golf team finished third in its final tournament of the fall 2011 season Monday.
Los Alamos played at the Marty Sanchez Links de Santa Fe Monday. Monday’s tournament, however, was actually hosted by the Hobbs Eagles — Hobbs is located in the extreme southeastern part of the state.
The Hilltoppers shot a 399 overall. Only one Hilltopper was able to break 100, however. Freshman Johnny Osden finished with a 92.
Los Alamos head coach Mike Lippiatt said his team actually played most of the round better than its 399 would indicate, but there were a few blow-ups on the day that knocked scores up considerably.
Monday, the Hilltoppers were also slated to host a girls qualifier but a few teams dropped out late and that tournament was nixed. The girls team is also finished for the fall season.
At the links course, Osden played well tee-to-green, but had 11 three-putts. The greens on the course were playing fast.
Following Osden, Tanner Vaughn and Raul Roybal both shot 100. Darren Speight had a 107 and Kevin Smale, playing in his first varsity tournament, finished with a 109.
Hobbs won the tournament handily, shooting a team score of 309. St. Michael’s, the defending Class A-3A champ, finished with a 325.
