Payson High School freshman golfer Dean Harpe made his varsity debut a smashing success by leading the Longhorns to a 153-183 win over Gilbert Christian. Playing March 1 on the front nine holes at Chaparral Pines, Harpe carded an even par 35 to finish first overall. Tyler Apps was second at 37 and Jeffrey Kelley took third with a 40. Anthony Smith posted a 41 and Kelsey Bossert turned in a 48. In the “play five, keep four” scores format, only the top four cards are counted in the team tally. Most importantly about the win is that it is one of the five qualifying scores high school teams must attain to earn a berth into the Division III state tournament.
