MEN'S GOLF: RSU welcomes new faces to program

CLAREMORE — For Rogers State men’s golf an influx of new faces has come together with a new mentality for the Hillcats as the 2013-14 season gets underway.

With five golfers returning from last year’s squad coach Lynn Blevins is looking to redshirt sophomore Trevor Williams to provide leadership in his third season on The Hill. “I think we finally have some leadership. A coach can only be so many things,” said the Hillcat head coach. “I think Trevor being in his third year brings leadership and knowledge of how we do things. We have some upperclassmen leadership pushing the young players along.”

Hagen Barmasse is back after averaging a score of 78.21 as a freshman, totaling two rounds under par in his 14 rounds of tournament play. Jenks, Okla. native Aaron Davis returns for his sophomore campaign after appearing in just four tournaments last season. He averaged a versus par score of 5.55 and shot a low round 69 in the third round of the U.C. Ferguson Classic.

Two other sophomores, Thomas Reilly and Taylor Schoppa, return after a combined four tournament appearances a season ago.

Blevins is excited with the addition of seven newcomers to the roster including transfer Tanner Alder. A junior this season, Alder has already assumed a leadership role for the Hillcats this year.

“Tanner Alder has already made a big difference in our program. He has a goal and is very focused on it,” said Blevins of the Eastern Arizona College transfer. “Tanner has really stepped up and he leads with his actions and is a really, really good kid.”

A pair of international players have coach Blevins excited about the group of newcomers. Henning Hogmoen, a native of Norway, had four top 20 finishes as a senior, including a win at the Ostfoldmester Huseby Championship shooting a five-under-par, 65. Williamston, Ontario, Canada native William Lecky joins the Cats after three top five finishes as a senior at Char-lan District High School.
