“The team is off to a strong start with a third overall team finish at the Aksarben contest,” said coach Curtis Doubet.

Kemsley Gallegos of Laramie claimed high individual overall. Holly Heckendorf of Wellington, Colo., was sixth high individual, and Justin Doubet of Parker, Colo, was eighth high individual overall.
