PUEBLO WEST — After losing only two seniors from last season, the Pueblo West boy's golf team is looking to win it all in 2020.

"If you want to win, you have to put in the work," explained Cyclones junior Adam Whittlef.

So just like Rihanna's 2016 hit 'Work', the West Cyclones has been putting in the work amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

"I think we need to focus more on as a team more than individually," said Cyclones senior Toby Salinas. "Because individually we can excel, but as a team, we need to put in that work."

Last year PWHS finished in second place in the 4A State Tournament, leaving this year's team on a mission.

"I think it's because we are very competitive and we want to win," said Whittler.

"We are not going to be handed a trophy," added Salinas.

So the hard work begins now because, in the end, only the Cyclones know what it takes to win state.

"I mean its all just a mental game right now," said Salinas, with a grin on his face. "That is something all of us need to work on. I mean this game is in the head. That is all it is."
