Jock Talk

Congrats to organizer Kerry Ferguson and the Kimball Hospital Foundation for another very successful Golf Classic Tournament held this past Saturday at the Four Winds Golf Course. A great turnout with 28 four-person teams made up of 112 golfers. The weather was nice with a bit of rain right at the tail end of the day. See all of the results in another story in this week’s sports.


The Thursday night Men’s Golf League has completed nine weeks of league play and now will begin their season ending tournament play. All teams are seeded in the tournament and play is determined by their overall season point totals. The league consisted of 30 teams and golfers were divided into three divisions. Overall winners in each of the three divisions where announced. In the RED division Aaron Koski and Gene Golding were the winners with a tie for second and third between the teams of Randy Bohac and Steve Linn, and the team of Roger Wynne and Bert Linn.

In the BLUE division the winning team was Greg Robinson and Henry Heeg, with Mike Coleman and Bill Hinton second, and third place went to Dean Golding and Bill Shain. The WHITE division was won by Kevin Thomas and Gary Haack, with second place going to Keith Staehr and Gary Hall, and third place to Lloyd Howard and Mike Isley.


Fall Sports practice for Nebraska High Schools was officially opened up this past Monday, August 7, and for Kimball High the sports involved include Football, Volleyball, Cross Country, and Girl’s Golf. It appears there is a good turn out in all of the sports with Girl’s Golf getting a solid boost from just a couple of golfers last year to seven this season. The first competition for Kimball will be in the Girl’s Golf as they take part in the Sidney Tournament on August 22 and go to Bayard for WTC play on August 24.
