Bobcat Golf Fundraiser sees another record-breaking year

The Marshalltown High School Activities Department is proud to announce another record-breaking year for the Bobcat Golf Fundraiser. The $34,000 raised to support Bobcat Activities this year topped the 2021 record of $25,000, as well as the $13,000 raised in 2019.

More than 280 golfers participated in the 2022 Bobcat Golf Fundraiser, held annually at the American Legion Golf Course. During the morning session, the team of Lance Cowell, Dave Mattox, Larry Jackson, and Harry Hillier took top honors, scoring -20 par.

The afternoon session winners included a tie between Nathan Minkel, Cole Jansen, Brett Holland, Peter Collison and the team of Justin Humke, Andy George, Nicole George and Marty Smith. They tallied scores of -18 par. 

Other accolades included Harry Hillier (Longest Drive), Trevor Schiebel (Closest to the Pin), and Dakota Gibson (Longest Putt). 

MHS Activities Director Ryan Isgrig expressed his appreciation for the great turnout.

“The community and alumni support for this event has been fantastic and we are already looking forward to next year. We had a full house of golfers and it was a great summer day,” he said. “I am extremely thankful to the American Legion and its employees, our Bobcat sponsors and donors, golfers, and the MHS staff and volunteers who made this fundraiser possible.” 

Superintendent Dr. Theron Schutte thanked the community members, Bobcat alumni, and all those who made the event possible.

“It was wonderful to see such an outpouring of support for Marshalltown Athletics relative to nearly filling out the entire golf course in the morning and afternoon sessions with participants,” Dr. Schutte said. “Congratulations to Activities Director Ryan Isgrig and his team for rebuilding this annual fundraising event and seeking to continually improve it each year.”
