Reinland paces Warrior men's golf team to lead in Billings
BILLINGS, Mont. – Drew Reinland shot two rounds of 67 to give the Lewis-Clark State College men’s golf team a one shot lead over host Rocky Mountain College at the second Frontier Conference regular season tournament on Sunday.
The LCSC men, the Frontier Conference’s defending regular season and post-season tournament champions, finished the day at 557 while Rocky stands at 558. Carroll brings up third with 563, and Westminster is fourth at 575.
Reinland, a sophomore from College Place, Wash., sits atop the individual standings as his 134 is two shots ahead of his nearest competitor. Teammate Kyler Gable is also near the top as he shot a 138 with two rounds of 69.
“I was really pleased with how the men’s team played,” said LCSC head coach Paul Thompson. “Anytime you can go under par both rounds that’s some pretty good shooting.”
The Warriors shot a 281 in the opening round and followed with a 276 in the second.
On the women’s side, Lewis-Clark State shot a 620 over the two rounds which put them in front of Rocky Mountain (629) but behind defending conference champ Westminster (592).
Heather Bruce shot rounds of 76-75 to lead LCSC at 151, Brooke Dagner had two rounds of 77 to finish the day at 154, and Idah Whisenant ‘s two rounds of 78 put her at 156.
“I’m pleased with both teams,” said Thompson about his squads. “It’s tough to come into Rocky and beat them. At this point we haven’t beat them, but we’ve hung with them.”
Both teams will play the final round on Monday.
