    Chants Win Kearney Catholic Invite

    The Chant golf team survived some shaky play on a cold, windy day to take another championship, this time the Kearney Catholic Invitational.  The Chants won by only two strokes over Hastings St. Cecilia shooting a score of 332 to the Bluehawks 334.  Wood River was third with a 346.

    Coach Mike Bechtold said it was a testament to the depth of the golf team that they could win a meet in this fashion.

    "We had some guys really step thier game up and contribute to the team score." said Coach Bechtold, "I can't think of a meet ever, that saw a team's number one man score not count and still win the meet."

    Bechtold referred to Brady Rogers, whose score of 89 was not included in the scoring.

    "Brady finally had on off day," said Bechtold, "It took four years but he finally shot a score that kept him out of the medals.  He has been a wonderfully consistent golfer for us and I'm sure he will rebound just fine."

    Tanner Bundy lead the Chants with an 80 and medaled 4th, Ethan John shot 83 for 7th and Colton Zulkoksi 84 for 8th.  Cy Trofholz rounded out the scoring with an 85 for 11th.

    "Tanner was striking the ball very well and put himself in great position all day," said Coach Bechtold, "If he would have made a few putts, he would have won the meet."

    Bechtold said the play of Trofholz has been a pleasant surprise.

    "Cy has played very steady golf for a player who oftentimes is seeing the course for hte first time, I am really happy with where he is at."

    Bechtold said the season is progressing nicely for the Chants.

    "Overall, we seem to be right on the cusp of being the team we want to be," Bechtold said, "a little conistency here and some putting work there and we can return to that top echelon of teams in the state we reached last year."
