by Ross DuBray
C-EB Senior Nolan Keckler shot an 88 at the Region 3 golf meet in Mitchell to qualify for the State A Golf Tournament. Keckler shot a 42 in the front nine and a 46 on the back nine to finish eleventh in the region. Keckler finished in a four-way tie at 88- Jayden Bruun of Winner, Tyler Villbrandt of Mobridge-Pollock and Jacob Lee of Parkston. This marks the third consecutive state tournament Keckler has qualified for. “Nolan is a good example of hard work and practice paying off,” said Golf Coach Curt Corey. “He knows what he has to do, and has the skills to do it.” Coleman Caldwell of Chamberlain won the meet with a 72. Twenty-one golfers will move on from Region 3 to the state tournament, which will be held in Spearfish on October 1-2, 2012.
