Logger golf made a strong showing Thursday during the conference divisional tournament at Whitefish. Seven of the team’s eight golfers qualified for the state championship tournament.

Erin Jager and Lily Feeback qualified individually for the girls, finishing 14th and 15th, respectively. Jager shot a 119. Feeback shot a 122.

Morgan Wilkins’ 84 led the way for the boys who qualified as a team with a second-place finish. Both Wilkins and Jonny Cielak, with an 85, earned all-conference honors by finishing in the top 10, sixth and seventh, respectively. Kyle McNew’s 98 and Luke Adamson’s 99 qualified them for individual participation in the state tournament. The lucky dog of the day was Quinn Sullivan, who shot a 102, finishing three shots over the cut line, but qualified for the state tournament in Polson thanks to the solid shooting of his teammates.

“Quinn didn’t have his strongest round,” Coach Dann Rohrer. “But, hey, he lives to fight another day. I am very happy for this team and proud of the way they represented the city of Libby.”

Rohrer told his golfers to value every shot during a cool day on the Whitefish South course.

“It’s been a while since we finished in the top two,” Rohrer said. “It’s a great accomplishment.”

The Flatfish tournament, a two-day event which determines state tournament qualifiers, changes to the Village Greens course Friday in Kalispell.
