BAYARD — The Bayard boys’ golf team took advantage of being at home for their season opener April 2 to claim the championship at the Chimney Rock Golf Course.

With 349 shots, the Tigers ended up 29 ahead of runner-up Bridgeport, who carded a 378. Mitchell followed closely with a third-place 379.

Jim Roberts, the first and only coach in Bayard High School golf history, said the team showed some great play, especially in putting. But he also noted there’s always a need for improvement.
Bayard finished in the top 10 to earn medals. Trae Blanco won the individual title with a 77 round, shooting 41 on his opening nine holes, then 36 for the second nine.

Finishing right behind Blanco was teammate Tyson Schmunk. He finished as the runner-up medalist with an 80 round. Joe Hernandez placed eighth with a round of 89.

Other Tigers finishing their home tourney were David Schuler with a 103 and Richard Kadayso with 116.

In its second-place finish, Bridgeport was led by Dakota Swires, who finished fourth with an 83.

The top 10 individual scores were: 1, Trae Blanco, Bayard, 77. 2, Tyson Schmunk, Bayard, 80. 3, Freddie Kasselman, Chase County, 82. 4, Dakota Swires, Bridgeport, 83. 5, Henry Heeg, Kimball, 83. 6, Kyle Gorsuch, Potter-Dix, 84. 7, Peyton Briggs, Mitchell, 85. 8, Joe Hernandez, Bayard, 89. 9, Brady Horstman, Hemingford, 89. 10, Lane Godfrey, Creek Valley, 89.
