Trio helps Montrose capture Indian Invite at Cobble Creek
Three Montrose High School players shot 74 or better Thursday as the Indians hosted and won the 16-team Indian Invitational boys golf tournament at The Links at Cobble Creek.
Montrose’s Jacob Hebbel fired a 70 to finish second, two strokes behind Pueblo South’s Jimmy Maklowski.
“He played great, and he has most of the year,” Indians coach Angelo DeJulio said of Hebbel. “He’s pretty steady.
“He played (in the group) with Makloski, and if Makloski’s not the best player in the state, he’s one of the best, and (Hebbel) hung right with him.”
Kelby Breidel added an even-par 72 for Montrose, and DeJulio said Breidel’s only hiccup was a double bogey on his third hole of the day. Otherwise, he had two birdies and the rest were pars.
“That’s a senior right there,” DeJulio said. “He doesn’t let that stuff bother him.”
Central High School’s Preston Grandbouche matched Hebbel with a 70. Fruita Monument finished fourth as a team with a 229, 13 strokes back of Montrose, led by Will Berg’s 72.
Central High School swept the singles matches to defeat Montrose 6-1 in a boys tennis dual Thursday.
Drake Giese at No. 2 and Lael Nordstrom at No. 3 made quick work of their matches, each winning 6-1, 6-0.
■ Grand Junction High School’s dual at Aspen was postponed because of rain.
Austin Stellmath scored the deciding goal in the 36th minute of the second half as Palisade won its boys soccer season opener 3-2 at Delta.
Jorge Quinonez scored both of the Panthers’ goals. The first was a minute into the contest and the second tied the game 2-2 eight minutes into the second half.
Central lost the first two games and was facing match point with Palisade serving in the third game when the Warriors roared back for a 23-25, 16-25, 26-24, 25-22, 15-7 victory in a nonleague season opener for both teams.
Central coach Beth Nelson said Robbi Termentozzi’s serving was a big part of her team’s comeback. The Warriors trailed 22-16 at one point in the third game and were down 24-22 with the Bulldogs serving for the match.
Termentozzi had seven kills and three blocks for the Warriors and Rayleigh Norton had five aces.
Savannah Hanson led Palisade with 15 kills.
