Missoulian Sentinel's Hober leads boys' field

The golfers from Great Falls must have found Friday's windy conditions at the Missoula Invitational much to their liking.

Great Falls Russell and Great Falls High tied for the boys' lead and the Great Falls Russell girls took the lead as well after the first round of play in the 36-hole tournament.

The Rustler and Bison boys compiled team scores of 317 at par-71 Missoula Country Club. They hold a two-stroke lead over Kalispell while defending champion Missoula Sentinel is five strokes back at 322. The boys conclude play Saturday at Larchmont Golf Course.

Missoula Sentinel sophomore Adam Hober shot a 2-over 73 at MCC for the low boys' score of the day. Scott Anderson of Great Falls is one stroke back at 74 while teammate Ryan Fritz and Jason Burnett of Missoula Hellgate are at 75.

The Great Falls Russell girls hold a commanding 22-stroke lead over defending champion Whitefish after compiling a team score of 362 at par-75 Larchmont. Missoula Sentinel is a close third and Great Falls fourth.

CMR's Eileen Spindler shot an 81 despite taking an 8 on the par-5 16th hole to take a four-stroke lead over Devon Newell of Helena. Kylie Anderson of Great Falls and Sarah Paulson of Sentinel are next at 88. The girls conclude play Saturday at MCC.
