The Eastern Wyoming College golf team hosted their annual golf tournament on the 12 & 13th of September. The Lancers won with a team score of 296.
Individuals placing for the Lancers at the tournament were as follows:
Aaron Nirider, freshman, from Riverton, WY – was the individual champion with a score of 71
Brandon Rideout, sophomore, Wamsutter, WY – placed 2nd with a score of 72

Chandler Meeboer, freshman, from Casper, WY – tied for 11th place

“We were able to win the tournament but we were only able to finish 7 holes the second day because of the rain. We were able to record scores through one full day of 18 holes and they will count in our Region IV competition. Aaron Nirider had his first individual championship which gave EWC its 3rd different individual champion in three tournaments. He edged out teammate Brandon Rideout for the victory. We recorded our best one day score of the year as a team with 296.” shared Coach Casey Jones. “We look forward to finishing the fall strong with the final tournaments.”
EWC will travel to Otero, Lamar and Trinidad for the last tournaments for the fall season.
