After a stellar season, Reece Malyevac capped his second year with the Libby Logger golf team by taking 18th at the state tournament last week.

The Libby sophomore shot 80 and 81 during the tournament in Polson, which ran Oct. 1-2, according to coach Dann Rohrer.

“He is an excellent example of what hard work and dedication can do for you,” said Rohrer.

In his first year with the Loggers, Malyevac missed the state tournament, shooting over 100 at the Polson course. Along with carding two rounds in the low 80s at this year’s championship, Malyevac shot a 71 on the course in late September.

“That is showing effort and improvement,” said Rohrer. “Great job Reece this year and look out for the super soph in the next two years.”

Malyevac led the Logger golf team in multiple tournaments this year, securing a win at the Polson Bay Invitational and earning a second place finish at divisionals.
