Matt Klima and Aaron Keiser of Wauneta combined to win the championship flight of the Logan Bauman Memorial golf tournament this past weekend.

The duo shot an 18-hole score of 62 at the Imperial Country Club Saturday. They backed that up with a 65 on the Enders Lake Golf Course Sunday for the two-day low total of 127.

The team of Tom and Lynn Luhrs of Imperial took second with rounds of 67-64 for a total of 131. The team of Tim Yokum and Daryl Francescoto of Cozad took third in the top flight with a 68-64 for a 132.

Three teams tied for first in the first flight, all with 145s. They included Alan Carman and Brian Carman, Jess Vapenik and Joe Humphrey, and John and Angie Paisley.

Jeff Pribbeno and Cheris Liedel won the second flight with a total of 156. Tom Ashmore and Sara Winslow took the third flight with a score of 171.


First time in Chase County

This marked the first time in the five-year history of the event that it was held in Chase County. In previous years, the tournament has been played in Parker, Colo.

The tournament is played as the sole fundraising event for the Logan Bauman Memorial Fund, a foundation started by his parents, Andy and Carla Bauman, after his untimely death in December, 2008 at the age of 14.

This year’s event stretched over two days with teams golfing in morning and afternoon flights at both courses both days.

The tournament filled to capacity with 72 teams. Each team played an 18-hole round at both Enders and Imperial, alternating courses each day.

Since the inception of the foundation five years ago, the Baumans have already donated $100,000 to youth sporting activities and school scholarships.

The full results of this year’s tournament are available in the print edition.
