Tiger golfers already in the swing

LUSK – Third year Niobrara County High School golf coach Ed Fullmer has a foursome of underclassmen for the Tiger boys this fall. 

Juniors Cory Bruegger and Camden Rose are two-time letterwinners and capable of top-five finishes at state, according to Fullmer.

“Camden has spent a lot of time working on his game, and during the spring season we talked about things to help him get better,” Fullmer said. “And he’s done a lot of those things, so his early performances haven’t really surprised me.”

Bruegger spent most of his spring and summer playing basketball, which is ok for head basketball coach Fullmer. Both of them have grown this summer, as Fullmer has noticed a bit more distance on Bruegger’s drives and Rose has slimmed down to improve his stamina.

“Cory is such a naturally gifted athlete, I wasn’t too worried that he didn’t get as much time on the course this summer,” Fullmer added. “His hands are so good, which is important for a short game around the greens.”

The pair have become sparring partners during practice and their competitive nature spills over to the course during tournaments. Fullmer noted how the two, “get along well, but don’t really like to lose to the other.”

Sophomores Nathan Fish and Landon Parker are newcomers, and Fullmer appreciates their efforts so far. Fish has played a few of the early tournaments while Parker is learning the game playing a junior varsity schedule.

The Lusk Invitational is scheduled for Sept 9-10, and the 2A State Tournament will be in Wright Sept 16-17.
