Bobcat duffers take third in state

Thursday, May 29, 2003

The Thayer Bobcats closed the book on their golf season by bringing home third place in the Class 1 State Tournament at Deerlake Park Golf Course in Springfield.

The Bobcats' two-day team total was 684. Tipton won the team title by carding a two-day 663.

Brett Ward paced Thayer with a two-day 162, while M.J. Clark posted a 167, and Tim Eckman a 169 for the Bobcats.

Ward, who finished seventh individually, and Clark, 13th, were named to the All-State Golf Team.

The Bobcats claimed the South Central Conference and district titles earlier in the month.

Ward and Eckman were named to the All-SCA first team, while Layne Hawkins made second team, and M.J. Clark was named honorable mention.

Eckman, Ward, Hawkins and Clark all made the All-District Golf Team for their play in the tournament.
