Wasatch high school has had a long-standing tradition of excellent golf. Two years ago the Wasatch Wasps boys’ golf team went into the 3A state championship as contenders for 1st place. With an outstanding 2nd place finish behind the powerhouse Park City high school, the Wasps were arguably one of the best teams in the state of Utah.

A lot has changed over the last two years for the golf team. Last year (2012 season), the Wasatch boys finished 4th in the 3A state tournament, still a noteworthy achievement. But after losing 13 players in the last two years, the team has struggled, and this has been a very interesting year for WHS golf, especially in the new Region 8.

The Wasatch boys hosted the Region 8 championship tournament last Tuesday, September 24, at the Wasatch Lake course in Midway, the final tournament of the season for the Wasps. It didn’t turn out for them the way they had hoped. The boys finished the tournament in 6th place out of 7 teams, and also finished in 6th place overall in the Region 8 standings for the season.

Wasatch is in a re-building phase, but has so many good, young players. Hopefully, in the next few years, the Wasps will be back at the top in state rankings.

There is a great legacy of golf at WHS that can confidently come to life again in the years to come.

The four Wasatch scores for the team:

Dan Briggs: 79

Tanner Lee: 84

Mitch Gogan: 84

Jaden Roney: 87

The team shot a 334 total.

Here are the final Region 8 standings:

1. Maple Mountain

2. Timpview

3. Provo

4. Springville

5. Spanish Fork

6. Wasatch

7. Salem Hills
