Lady Tigers wrap up golf season with fourth-place finish at state; Two-time defending champs Natrona Fillies taken down by food poisoning

LARAMIE – There were not a lot of surprises on the boy’s side at this past weekend’s 4A State Golf Tournament in Laramie, but on the ladies side there were some surprises due to key cases of food poisoning.

On the ladies side, it has been a battle all year at the top between Evanston, Natrona and Laramie. Natrona entered this year’s tournament as one of the favorites again after winning the past two state titles. While Evanston beat them on the course, the real culprit for Natrona was food poisoning as three Fillies came down sick and could not compete. One of the Natrona players stricken was Eryn Ellis who won several tournaments this season and was expected to make a push for the individual title.

Evanston finished in first with a total of 542 which was 40 strokes ahead of Laramie. Cheyenne East shot a 584 for third. The Lady Tigers of Rock Springs had a strong tournament as they finished in fourth place overall while Sheridan came in 591. The Lady Wolves finished in 10th overall.
