Trevor Olkowski got in a better groove Tuesday at Bookcliff Country Club in the final round of the Class 5A state championships. The Grand Junction High School senior finished in ninth place, his third year making all-state. He’ll play next year at the University of Colorado.

Tiger battles to the finish

Olkowski wraps up career with spot in top 10

For the first time in two days, Trevor Olkowski found his groove Tuesday afternoon for the Grand Junction High School boys golf team.
After struggling in the first round Monday and starting his second round with an out-of-bounds drive off the first tee, the senior birdied the 12th, 14th and 15th holes to pick up strokes and finish ninth at the Class 5A boys golf state tournament.
His two-day score of 3-over-par 145 might’ve been even better if he hadn’t three-putted on No. 18 after reaching the par 5 in two shots.
“That’s the best I felt all tournament,” Olkowski said. “I was hitting the ball better, my contact was better, but threw it away with the three-putt on 18. That’s the story of this tournament, I guess.”
