Clancy finished runner-up in each of the past two Class A golf state invitationals. The Central star shot a blistering 69 on Day 2 of this year’s state meet in Sidney, finishing second to Libby’s Ryggs Johnston.

In 2016, Clancy recorded a pair of 73s in Hamilton to finish two strokes back of state champion Max Toenjes, who was playing on his home course.

But 2015 was Clancy’s time to shine at the Sidney Country Club. He led wire to wire, shooting an opening round of 75 and capping the tournament with a Day 2 74 to finish five strokes ahead of Toenjes for the title.

Clancy finished third at the state meet as a freshman with a two-day score of 154.
