Senior Jacob Smith capped off an impressive season and career for Rifle’s golf team by placing fourth at the 4A state golf tournament at Raccoon Creek Golf Course in Littleton.
Smith shot rounds of 77 and 75 (+8) in the two-day event to finish in a tie for fourth alongside first-day leader Tyler Severin from Roosevelt and Montrose’s Micah Stangebye.
