T’Elle Aces Girls Golf Competition, Beats Most Boys At Wolf Point Meet

HN.4.17.14.SP.GOLF 6005It might not matter to T’Elle Evans that she is the only girl on Wolf Point’s golf team because she beat nearly everybody at the meet at Wolf Point’s Airport Golf Course Saturday, April 12.
She also did it in weather that was more suitable for outdoor ice hockey with a temperature in the 30s and the wind blowing.
Evans, a senior, shot an 87 for a first place finish in girls’ competition and just three strokes behind the top finishing male golfer, who was Lane Seymore, of Chinook, shooting an 84 for first place.
“T’Elle [Evans] played very well considering the conditions, so I can see her getting stronger as the year progresses,” coach Rodney Paulson said.
“I thought my team did good,” he said.
Evans’ freshman brother made a good showing.
“Cale Evans did very well for his first high school meet and I expect him to shoot better as the year moves along,” Paulson said.
The highest finisher among local golfers was Devin Sadler of Poplar with a 96 for 15th place on the boys’ side.
Other local finishers included: Joey Bawden of Culbertson shot a 118; Eric Hendrickson of Culbertson, 123; Cale Evans of Wolf Point, 131; Braden Olson of Culbertson, 134; McKade Mahlen of Cul-
bertson, 139.

Wolves Emerge From Baker Invite With Improved Personal Bests

Several Wolf Point High School track and field athletes improved their personal bests in cold, blustery weather at the 34-team Baker Invitational Saturday, April 12.
Wolf Point’s girls’ team finished 15th with five points. Glasgow finished in first place in boys’ and girls’ competition.
“This is the biggest meet we’ve been to so far this season,” head coach Robert Page said.
“We’re young, but I wasn’t unhappy. They went out and competed well,” he said.
“The kids set some personal bests from a week ago when we were in Glasgow, which shows they are making progress,” Page said.
“Sonica [Archdale] tried the javelin and did well. It’s a new event for her,” he said.
Archdale, the only senior girl on the team, also showed promise in the triple jump.
Ashley Page recorded a fifth-place finish in the long jump, her best so far this year.
“Kenny Boos made the finals in the 110 hurdles as a freshman,” Page said.
“I told the kids I was happy with how they competed, but I wasn’t satisfied and I didn’t want them to be satisfied, either,” he said.
