First Published May 21 2012 05:01 pm • Last Updated May 12 2014 04:00 pm

Sandy • Weber State-bound golfers on Monday swept the seventh annual Hidden Valley Country Club High School Invitational, a unique event that attempts to bring the top high school seniors from around Utah to one tournament to decide an overall state champion.

Northridge High’s Kyler Dearden fired a 1-under-par 107 to win the 27-hole boys’ tourney, while Davis High’s Carly Oldroyd shot a 9-over-par 81 to win the 18-hole girls’ tourney. The winning golfers will receive $250 gift cards, courtesy of HVCC, redeemable at their college bookstore.

Weber State-bound golfers sweep the event as Northridge High’s Kyler Dearden wins the 27-hole boys’ tournament with a 1-under-par 107 and Davis High’s Carly Oldroyd wins the 18-hole girls’ tournament with a 9-over-par 81.

Dearden was tied for fourth at 73 through 18 holes with Highland’s Devin Tovey when the golfers broke for lunch, then fired a 2-under 34 on the Lakes nine to edge Lone Peak’s Zach Pymm (108) and 18-hole leader Nick Smart (109) of Juan Diego.

Dearden dedicated the round to a fallen Northridge teammate, freshman Tyler Smith, who died of cancer a few days ago. He had Smith’s name on his golf ball and wore a T-shirt with Smith’s motto: Fight to the Finish.

"This meant a lot to me," Dearden said.

In the girls’ tournament, Oldroyd said she didn’t play as well as she would have liked, but was happy with the win after placing fourth at the 5A state meet last week with a 78 at Wasatch Mountain State Park.

She made an eagle on her final hole, the Valley nine’s par-5 ninth after hitting her approach to 5 feet. That came after a pair of triple bogeys and a couple of double bogeys.

"I was surprised I won," she said, "but I will take it."

Orem’s Kim Nyhus and Copper Hills’ Shaina Snyder both shot 83 to tie for second place.
