Boone Central Golfers Enjoy Success

Morgan 2nd at LakeviewSenior Bryce Morgan and the Boone Central golf team continued their season progress last week with impressive performances at Neligh and Columbus.
Morgan scored a pair of runner-up finishes in the Neligh and Lakeview Invitational meets, rebounding from a disappointing Mid-State Conference outing.
The Cardinals, who had four new varsity golfers joining Morgan this season, had their best showing of 2009 at Neligh, placing second, then took a solid fourth in the Lakeview event.
“The team is playing better. However, we still have a long way to go before the district meet May 19,” acknowledged Card Coach Jesse Brodersen.
Boone Central put together of 354 team score at the Neligh Invitational Monday, April 27, nine strokes back of champion Pope John and two in front of Creighton.
Morgan led the way, tieing for the best score of the day (79) and placing second.
“Bryce played well and lost a playoff for first place,” Brodersen noted. “The team placing second showed continued improvement, which was nice as three teams from our district were in this meet – Creighton, Neligh and West Holt.”
Dusty Dozler notched his first top ten medal, finishing seventh with an 88. Kade Leetch was 13th among individuals with a 92 and Tanner Warner rounded out the team score with a 95, also finishing in the top twenty (18th).
Boone Central followed up that performance by placing fourth in the Lakeview Invite at Elks Country Club in Columbus. The Cardinals (351) finished behind Norfolk Catholic (323), Wayne (339) and Norfolk High JV (342).
Morgan was again the individual runner-up with a 75, one stroke back of champ Brady Vancura of Scotus. Rounding out scoring for BC were Warner (89), Collin Chaney (90), Leetch (97) and Dozler (97).
“Bryce had a great round at Lakeview,” Brodersen praised. “We shortened his swing and he was able to find his tempo to pace himself to a very good score.
“Tanner broke 90 for the first time this season. Collin hit 90, which is a goal for our golfers.”
