On Monday, October 4th, Spring Valley Golf Club welcomed competitors for the 3A Boys Golf State Championships. Holy Family sent Rudi Heitz, Ben Achziger, Drake Krommenhoek, and Dustin Fouts to represent the Tigers. While the Sophomores (Rudi and Drake) still have plenty of high school tournaments ahead of them, Dustin and Ben not only wrapped-up the 2021 season, but played the final holes of their high school golf career.

On day 1, Rudi shot a 79, Ben an 83, Drake an 82, and Dustin an 81. On the second day, (Tuesday October 5) the boys wrapped up the season and placed 8th as a team. Heitz had the top Holy Family score with a 79-72–151 and tied for 12th overall. Ben’s 76 on Day 2 put him in 29th place overall. Drake shot 82-82–164, and Dustin a 81-100–181.

Connor Downsey from Vail Christian won state with a 69-70–139. Aspen High School won as a team, beating second place Colorado Academy by 4 strokes.

Just like that, the season officially came to a close. Good Luck to Ben and Dustin in all of their future endeavors. Until next season, HF golfers!
