2017 IGA Senior State Championship Comes to a Close
After round one of the IGA Senior State Championship, there were four people who were no stranger to the spotlight. Karen Darrington of Boise, was leading the Women’s Senior State Championship at (-1) 71. Bret Rupert of Boise and Gary Vanier of Driggs shared the lead of the Men’s Senior State Championship at (E) 72, and Skip Pierce of Boise lead the Super-Senior’s at (-1) 71.
