MCC golfers reach top three at Riverton
RIVERTON, Wyo. -- The McCook Community College golf team showed a seven-shot improvement Friday but were unable to overtake the hosts for second place in the Central Wyoming tournament. Eastern Wyoming finished in first with a two-day score of 575. Central Wyoming was second with a 612, and MCC was third with a 615.
