The CHSAA Boys State Golf Tournament kicked off Monday morning across Colorado.

Several local teams and golfers were looking to take a step closer to a championship in Class 3A, 4A and 5A over the next two days.

At the Country Club of Colorado in Colorado Springs, Cheyenne Mountain and Pueblo West used rallies on the back 9 to vault themselves into 4A contention. CMHS (235) currently trails leader Mullen by four strokes while the Cyclones (238) are seven back. Individually, PWHS standouts Noah Wagner and Toby Salinas are currently tied for second with a 76, as it Coronado's Noah Keller, two back of the lead by Mustang's Mario Dino.

In Class 3A, St. Mary's is hanging tough at Dos Rios Golf Club in Gunnison, currently sitting in fifth place. The Pirates shot a 233 on the day, 11-strokes behind Kent Denver.

At Rolling Hills Golf Club, Pine Creek's Wesley Erling is right in the mix for a 5A state title. The Eagles top golfer is currently tied for first after firing a 73 on day 1.

The final round for all three classes is set for Tuesday morning and should conclude in the early afternoon.
