(Harlan) For the 2nd time in the past four years the Harlan Community golf team will compete at the Class 3A Boys State Tournament. Harlan will play in the 36-hole tournament today and tomorrow in Ames.
Iowa High School Athletic Association prohibits teams from playing a practice round on the state course between the district and state tournaments, so Harlan boys golf coach Chad Swanson has done his best to get his golfers prepared during the practice rounds this week on their home course.
In addition to the practices this week, several of the golfers have had other experiences that should help them at state such as state tournament's in other sports and summer golf tournament.
So far in postseason play the team has accomplished all of their goals. Their goal for state is to be in the top five after the first 18 holes.
Others representing the KSOM/KS95.7 sports coverage area at the 3A state meet include Carroll as a team and Carson Whittington of Creston individually.
