The Moffat County High School boys varsity golf team is seeking to send as many golfers to state this season as it can, which would break the team’s streak of having no state qualifiers for more than a decade. The team is, back row from left, Ethan O’Mailia, Parker King, Trey Jourgensen, Colby Haddan, Mark Dockstader, Zach Ahlmer and Colter Tegtman. In the front row, from left, is Taft Cleverly, Wes Whiffen, Eli Voyich, Brady Martinez and Kyler Willbanks.

MCHS golf team looking to end streak of missing state

In 2009, a streak — and an unfortunate one at that — was almost broken. Mark Dockstader narrowly missed becoming the first Moffat County High School boys golfer to qualify for a state meet since 1998. He shot 83, but wound up in a one-hole playoff for second alternate. All summer, he spent his mornings and weekends making sure that when the scores roll in, he’s on the right end of a trip to state.
