The Hemingford Bobcats golfers placed third in the district tournament, earning them a spot in the state tournament. Dax Powell is pictured in front with his medal for third place. Behind him are his teammates: Neo Powell, Daren McConville, Ethan Specht and Drew Varner.

On Monday, May 16, the Hemingford Bobcat Golf Team competed at the district tournament at Four Winds Golf Course in Kimball. The team placed third in the competition, qualifying for state.

“What a great day to be a Bobcat,” said Coach Joe Collins. “I could not be more proud of how we performed at the district tournament.”

“Our team had a chance coming into districts to place in the top three and qualify for the state tournament as a team. We would have to play our very best and that’s exactly what our boys did. Our season best team score coming into districts was a 393 (twice). To play as well as we did and beat our best team score by 9 strokes was an awesome surprise.”

“Dax Powell has led our team all season and shot his personal best at districts,” said Collins. “Drew Varner came in clutch to help our team score by shooting 5 strokes under his season best to shoot a new personal best 94. Our team will travel to North Platte next Monday, the 23rd to compete in the state tournament at Lake Maloney Golf Course on Tuesday and Wednesday.”
