Anaconda’s boys’ and girls’ golf teams won a lightning-shortened Butte Central Invitational Wednesday at the Highland View Golf Course.
The tournament was shortened to nine holes because of the thunderstorms that hit Butte early in the afternoon. The tournament in Livingston was shortened by lightning last Friday.
Anaconda’s boys won the team title with a 156, one shot better than Hamilton. Belgrade was third at 170.
Hamilton’s Josh Heath carded a 1-under-par 34 to win medalist honors.
Anaconda sophomore Caleb Stetzner shot a 36, while Hamilton’s Taylor Dowdy and Belgrade’s Tyler Ferguson each shot 37. Anaconda’s Jordan Noyd and Jackson Wagner each shot 38.
Triston Frey and Tyler Kump led Butte Central at 47. Zach Luebeck shot a 48.
Tucker Thatcher paced Butte High’s junior varsity team with a 40. Andy Kelly shot a 43, Marcus Lynch hit 44, Bryce Carver shot a 45 and Zach Hanni hit a 47.
Anaconda’s girls shot a 198 to win, beating Livingston by two shots. The Copperheads and Rangers were the only teams to field a full squad.
Emily Morley of Anaconda shot a 46 to finish in a four-way tie for first place with Livingston’s Christal Tokash and Michaela Amunrud and Belgrade’s Jessie Hirsch.
Tokash took medalist honors, while Amunrud took second and Morley third based on a scorecard playoff.
Ali Huber added a 47 for the Copperheads.
