Golfer Ian Siebers, a Bellevue High School senior, won two of his three matches at the Junior Presidents Cup from Dec. 8-9 in Melbourne, Australia. Siebers earned 2.5 out of a possible 3 points to help the United States earn a 13-11 victory over the International Team.

Siebers won his singles match easily, 7-and-6 over Chuan-Tai Lin, the shortest match in the competition’s history. In a foursomes match, Siebers and teammate Vishnu Sadagopan defeated the International Team’s Jang Hyun Lee and Jordan Duminy (2-up). In his four-ball match, Siebers and Alexander Yang tied with Jordan Duminy and Jang Hyun Lee.

Siebers and the Bellevue boys golf team will be back on the links for the 3A state golf tournament May 27-28 at Indian Summer Country Club.
