Local golf teams compete at state after heavy rain


As the 2022-2023 school session comes to a close, so does the golf season for several teams around Webster County. The state tournament was held at Meadow Lake Acres Country Club in Sedalia on May 15-16. 

Logan-Rogersville, Marshfield and Strafford all competed well, despite a large rainstorm saturating the course the night before the tournament. Tuesday ended with Logan-Rogersville taking 2nd place overall in the Men’s Class 3 Golf contest. 

Logan-Rogersville carved out an impressive 2nd place overall win for the team at State. A strong outing from Tyler Davis on both days led to an overall score of 155, landing Davis in 9th place individually. Cole Goff and Benjamin Roche also had strong scores of 159 each. The Wildcats only lost the state title by 10 strokes. 

”Our guys made a great run at a State Championship. They represented Logan-Rogersville well and gained some valuable experience throughout the season," boasted Head Coach John Schaefer. "There will be more to come. This team had a great year!"

Marshfield had some individual standouts. Michael Alves (sophomore) played strong on day one, finishing with an 81. Day two showed more promise, with Alves finishing with a 7 over the course par of 77, landing him in 36th place slot overall. Wyatt Davis (junior) also had a good showing, finishing 64th. Marshfield men’s golf coach Reggie Smith was extremely pleased with the season.

“I am incredibly proud of these boys and their perseverance,” Smith said. “Just the accomplishment of making it to state golf is impressive by itself.  We had a great time in Sedalia and I feel like they represented Marshfield well. We are excited about the future as Alves and Davis will be back at it again next spring as a junior and senior, respectively.”

Strafford also attended the state tournament with Tucker Stone playing two rounds, scoring 91 and 92. Stone finished 47th in the state. Drew Smith finished first team all-conference and Easton Willard, Braden Willard and Cody Voysey making second team all-conference.

“It was a really fun year with a great group of kids,” said Coach Tyler Ryerson. “I was very proud of them.”
