GJ golfer four strokes off lead in Class 5A state golf

COLORADO SPRINGS — Donny Kinnaman’s putting came around just in time. Troy Dangler’s putting fell apart midway through his round and didn’t return. Trevor Olkowski battled the same greens yet came away nearly unscathed, leaving him with a shot at a Class 5A state golf championship.
Grand Junction’s Olkowski shot 2-over-par 73 in the first round of the Class 5A boys golf state tournament on Monday at the Colorado Springs Country Club, leaving him four strokes back of Fort Collins’ Hunter Paugh, who finished at minus-2 to lead the way.
Kinnaman heads into today at 5-over, tied for 15th place, and Dangler is two back at 7-over, tied for 23rd.
Kinnaman and Dangler tied for seventh at last year’s state tournament. Olkowski was 28th.
Grand Junction coach Tom LeFebre was pleased with the first-roud play of his golfers.
