Abbie Tibbitts, a freshman and the second place district golfer, took 29th place with a score of 266.Coach Megan Bybee described the Twin Lakes Village Golf Club as a a strategic course that demanded accuracy.“With houses, hazards and out of bounds areas on every hole, we struggled,” she said. “There were some amazing shots and moments and holes, but putting it all together and eliminating mistakes proved difficult.”It was a great learning experience for the team, she added. “We’re proud to have had the opportunity to represent our district at the state tournament. We’re definitely looking forward to next year and continuing to develop a strong team.”The team will graduate three varsity golfers: O’Brien, Luke Thompson, and Oliver Dahlgren. Fortunately there are plenty of younger players ready to step up and fill those leadership roles.“Lots to look forward to for Teton Golf,” Bybee concluded.While the season is over, the team isn’t done golfing; there will be a fundraiser tournament at Teton Reserve on June 6 to support the purchase of indoor practice equipment and offset the cost of uniforms.
