FREMONT — Scotus Central Catholic didn’t play its best Monday at Fremont Golf Club, but the Shamrocks still did enough to qualify for the state tournament for the sixth consecutive year.
The Shamrocks shot a 449 and finished as the C-2 district runner-up on a day when higher-than-normal scores were common.
“These are not the scores we were hoping for, but we were able to qualify nevertheless,” Scotus head coach Tanya Niedbalski said.
Kaitlyn Enderlin shot a 108 to lead Scotus and finish ninth, while Kendra Wiese and Makenzie Enderlin tied for 10th with Shelby-Rising City’s Rylee Branting. All three golfers shot 109.
Emily Carstens rounded out the Scotus team score with a 123 and Maddie Neville carded the alternate score of 126.
“It will take a better effort on the part of all five players next week to make a good showing at the state tournament,” Niedbalski said.
Shelby-Rising City also qualified for the state tournament, finishing third with a 456. Monica Hinkle finished fifth with a 102, giving the Huskies a pair of individual medalists. Sydney Ziemba shot a 119 and Brenna Houdersheldt carded a 126 as the other scorers. Kalli Kilgore shot 141 as the team’s alternate.
Boone Central/Newman Grove’s Abby Brodersen shot a 94 to win the district title and qualify individually for the Class C state tournament, which will be held Oct. 9 and 10 at Lake Maloney Golf Course in North Platte.
