The Parker Broncs golf team had only one match last week, but they made the best of it by posting their best team score of the season so far.
The Broncs shot a season-best team score of 202 on April 19 as they played River Valley and Kingman Academy at the Emerald Canyon Golf Course north of Parker. They won the nine-hole match as Kingman Academy posted a score of 211 and River Valley had a team score of 218.
Parker had two golfers who broke 50. Brayden Page, a senior, shot the best individual score a Bronc has had this year with a 45. Jacob Bennett was right behind him at 48. Coach Chad McKenzie said Ethan Sale got off to a rough start, but he still shot a 52. Tallia Robldeo shot a 57, and her sister, Tyra Robledo, shot a career best 60.
The Broncs’ team score was one stroke lower than their previous best for the season. McKenzie has said he believes breaking 200 is a reasonable goal for the Broncs before the end of the season.
“Our goal is to break 200,” he said.
On Monday, April 26; the Broncs traveled to the El Rio Golf Course to take on the River Valley Dust Devils.
The Broncs will close out the season with three matches at their home course, Emerald Canyon. On Thursday, April 29 they’ll play Paradise Honors. On Monday, May 3 Odyssey Prep and Heritage Academy will come to Parker to play the Broncs. They’ll close out the 2021 season Tuesday, May 4 when they take on the always tough Yuma Catholic Shamrocks. Tee time for all the matches is 2 p.m.
