KEARNEY, Neb. -- Future Colorado State men’s golfer Richard Schneider captured the 2010 Nebraska Junior Championship last week. Held at the Wayne Country Club, the tournament boasted some tough competition for the future Ram. But after beating Lincoln’s Bryce Brown by one stroke, he proved that it was indeed not tough enough for him. He carded a six-under 30 on his back nine Wednesday with six birdies and three pars. Schneider finished the tournament with a five-under 66 for a three-round total of 208.
Schneider has already proven himself to be a success, when he won Class C state titles in 2008 and 2009 for Beemer High School in West Point, Neb.
Adding to the mix, a current Colorado State men’s golfer, Kory Harrell, also competed in a summer tournament, held locally in Denver. Harrell played in the 107th annual Trans-Miss Championship last week at the par 70 Denver Country Club in the Championship Division. Harrell has also represented CSU in the past at the Gene Miranda Falcon Invitational, which took place last year Sept. 19-20. He finished tied for 47th with a three-round 220 including a one-under 69 to kick off the competition.
