GJHS sophomore Jack Kaul lines up a putt during a tournament this season. The Tigers qualified for state for the first time in five years and finished 10th in Class 4A.

The Tigers boys golf team finished in 10th place at the class 4A state golf tournament. 

The state tournament was held Oct. 3-4 at Pelican Lakes Golf Course in Windsor. This was the first time GJHS qualified as a team in five years.

Grand Junction sophomore Jack Kaul competed in the state tournament and tied for 29th place. Kaul qualified individually for state last year and tied for 49th place and is the only team member to have previous state experience. 

Kaul said, “At state, there’s a lot of nerves to be perfect rather than improving ourselves.” 

GJ tied for 10th place with Dakota Ridge High School.  

Sophomore Ky Korte tied for 37th, freshman Hunter Simmons tied for 60th, and senior Landon Scarbrough tied for 69th for GJHS. The team ended with a total of 451 over the two-day competition.
