Kirk Hyman saved his best round ever at the Kenai Golf Course for the final day of the Kenai Open. His gross score of 78 on Sunday enabled him to win with a total net score of 140. He finished one stroke ahead of Gordon Griffin who shot a net 141.
Glennallen junior Briahna Gerlach and Chugiak senior Ty Jordan were the first to step into the void left by the graduation of Kenai Central's Allie Ostrander and Kodiak's Levi Thomet on Saturday at the 26th running of the Tsalteshi Invitational.
Nathan Kincaid and Angie Brennan were the top riders Thursday in the seventh rendition of this year's Tsalteshi Cycle Series at Tsalteshi Trails. Kincaid finished the course in 33 minutes, 9 seconds, to take the win.
Adam Reimer led central Kenai Peninsula runners by placing 19th on Saturday in Seward.
Matthew Shryock, running the second-fastest time in race history, won the race at 1 hour, 35 minutes and 33 seconds. Reimer's time was 1:52:52.
