STILLWATER – Mustang had just a pair of golfers in the State Tournament. But the experience gained will help the team as a whole.

Mustang’s Dylan Igo and Aaron Fife played three rounds of golf at Karsten Creek Golf Course last Monday and Tuesday. Igo shot a 79, 85 on Monday and an 83 on Tuesday. Igo placed 34th. Fife scored two 89’s on Monday and an 82 on the last round to finish in 60th.

“Not bad for seeing that golf course for the first time, which was in great shape,” Mustang coach Galen Wolfe said. “Karsten (Creek) does such a great job hosting the tournament and making it special for the players.”

The experience will help to two for next season.

“I think it was a great experience for them and they will learn from it which will definitely help them for next year,” Wolfe said.

Mustang will graduate just one of their top five golfers in Dalton Cusick. Having four returning varsity starters will certainly help the Broncos in their quest next season.

“As far as next year we will have four out of the five returning which should help our chances to qualify as a team. However some of the same teams we lost to this year also have a bunch returning so we have our work cut out for us through the offseason to improve and hopefully we can get the team to Karsten (Creek),” Wolfe said.

The Broncos are hoping to be able to make the necessary adjusts during the offseason to be able get to the State Tournament as a team. Mustang will have a long time before the season starts back up again and will be on the golf course ready to swing when the season rolls around next year.

“It is a special event they will not forget for the rest of their lives,” Wolfe said.
