Senior Ethan Tschanz is proud to announce a frisbee-golf tournament going on this weekend known as “Discin’ for Triston.” Tschanz and his partner, Alec Stults, put together this event in honor of alumni student, Triston Werth who tragically lost his life in August.

The first time Tschanz met Werth was at the local, annual disc-golf tournament four years ago.
“He royally kicked my butt by 50 strokes,” Tschanz said. “However, instead of bragging about his win, he encouraged me to keep playing.”

Throughout the years, the two spent a lot of time at Frontier Park where Werth taught Tschanz almost everything that he knows about the game. Werth was a gifted disc golfer who Tschanz believes he owes most of his success to for teaching him so much about the sport. Tschanz felt that it was only right to honor him through a tournament.

The tournament will be on Sept. 17 at Frontier Park in Hays. There will be two phases of the tournament including a singles’ round starting bright and early at 8:30 a.m. while the doubles’ event won’t take place until later that afternoon at 1:30 p.m.

Phaze 2 will be making their donation by creating a limited number of t-shirts for the event. To RSVP, and guarantee receiving a shirt with your correct size, head to Taco Grande and sign up for the event. To play as a single, the cost is $25. Find a buddy to partner up with which its only $40 for a team of two.

All the proceeds raised will go directly to the family of Triston Werth to help pay for the remaining funeral and medical expenses.

“I think Triston affected many people, on and off the course, in the same way he affected me,” Ethan said. “That’s why I wanted to honor him by running a tournament bearing his name.”
