Kyle Roessing tees off at the Bobcat Invitational last week. Roessing improved on his score and helped the Bobcats earn second place.

The Bobcat Golf Team hosted their spring Bobcat Invitational Tournament last Thursday with the boys garnering a second place win.

Eight schools attended the tourney, some from as far away as Moorcroft and Kemmerer.

Lander Valley High School place first, followed by Thermopolis, Worland, Kemmerer and Riverton to round out the top five.

Freshman Hardy Johnson led the Cats with a score of 73 and a second place individual score. Junior Jeffry Clark and freshman Lee Grimm both shot a 92, tieing them for 12th place.

"Jeffry (Clark) is putting up consistent scores from week to week and Lee made an 11 stroke improvement from our last tournament," coach Joey Johnson siad. "Will (Clark) shot 98 and made a 12 stroke improvement from the Worland tournament."

Sophomore Kyle Roessing rounded out the scores for the Bobcat boys with a 109, which is nine strokes lower than his last tournament.

Johnson's second place individual finish was just two strokes behind Dominic Yates of Lander.

Maddie Stam, the lone Bobcat Varsity girl carded 100 for the day earning her a fourth place finish overall. This was also a career high for Stam.

"Maddie's (Stam) confidence in her shots keeps improving, and more importantly, shows she knows how to correct her mistakes," coach Johnson said. "She is really starting to put up consistent scores."

Thermopolis Middle School fielded a full team of boys, including Spencer Calhoun, Hadley Johnson, Owen McCumber, Johan Needham and Seth Weyer.

Out of 13 middle school youth, Hadley Johnson finished first with an 83.

While five middle schools participated in the tournament, only two, Thermopolis and Lander Valley, had enough players to field a full team.

"Thermopolis Middle School won the team competition in their first outing," Johnson said. "All five team members played outstanding for their first tournament and I look for great things to come out of this group in the future."

The Bobcats will be heading to Powell on Friday.
