Just two weeks after classes began at Minot State University, Moose Jaw's Leighton Bearchell came back home for the Labour Day weekend. He had been practicing with his Minot State Beavers Golf Team for a couple of weeks but felt a need to tune up in a competitive environment. Bearchell, a summer staffer and member at the local Hillcrest Golf Club, entered the Lynbrook Golf and Country Club's two day, Labour Day Tournament. He won it.
Bearchell took his confidence back to the USA where he's off to great start to the season. In fact, he has been named "Athlete of the Week" in the NSIC after winning the Winona State Warriors' Watkins Invitational Championship in Minnesota.
