Palmyra’s Laydin Lochman and Jonas Janes competed in the MSHSAA Class 2 Boys Golf Championships in Columbia last Monday.
“These two did an amazing job and represented well,” said Coach Chris Parsons.
Competing in the state tournament for his second time, Lochman finished in a five-way tie for 21st place after two rounds at the Columbia Country Club course.
The senior shot an 87 on Monday and an 88 on Tuesday.
“Laydin, having been there before, was fairly confident going in and played pretty well,” Parsons said.
“One rough three hole stretch in day one was really the only tough part he had. I am very proud of Laydin and how he represented the last two seasons.
Playing at state for the first time, Janes finished in a four-way tie for 54th place after shooting a 99 the first round and 96 the second round.
“Jonas had somewhat of a slow start to the season, but once he got rolling he was really fun to watch work the ball around the course,” Parsons said. “The last three weeks he was really hitting the ball well. He had several goals this season and reached them all. He has a very bright future ahead.
“I told him to enjoy the experience at state and I truly believe he will be back.”
