The competition was stiff and the course was very challenging with tight pin placements at the Kearney Catholic Golf Invitational held at Meadowlark Hills Golf Course on Thursday.
Despite the challenging layout, Lady Haymaker Kaylei Becker was up to the challenge in scoring a 18-hole score of 79 and then winning in the playoff to be the gold medalist over Kearney Catholic’s Morgan Thiele, who also scored an 18-hole score of 79. Becker closed out her round with a great amount of momentum with a score of 37 on her final nine holes.
Starting off her sophomore season on the links circuit strong was Cozad’s Abigail Cornelius with a dynamite score of 91 to earn fifth place accolades for her efforts with scores of 47-44.
Just two strokes back from Cornelius was Gothenburg’s leading linkster Delaney Harm with a score of 93. Harm started her day with a 49 and finished the rally with a score of 44 on the final nine holes.
The duo of Georgina Dishman and Devyn Ostendorf scored valuable scores and finishes for the Lady Swedes with matching scores of 119. Both Dishman and Ostendorf cashed in with stellar back nines of 55 and 54 to finish the invitational stronger than they started.
Gothenburg’s Emma Jorgenson scored a 125 with a notable front nine score of 57 to her credit.
