MCHS grad Mark Dockstader improves in 1st collegiate golf season

While attempting to qualify for the Carl Sandburg College men’s first golf team, Mark Dockstader said nerves got the best of him. “Honestly, I was a little homesick at first,” he said. “When qualifying started, I didn’t play well and I had to be one of the top five golfers to be on the first team.” Dockstader, a 2011 Moffat County High School graduate, didn’t make the cut, but still was able to play on Carl Sandburg’s second team. The junior college in Galesburg, Ill., has 10 golfers on the team, with five on each of the first and second squads.
