"We get to see some Class A and B teams at the Blair Invite," head coach Tanya Niedbalski said in comments. "It's good to see how you stand when you move up in class to compete against some of the larger schools.
"We definitely did not have our best show of the season. The heat played a small role, but we just are not playing with consistency. We were satisfied to be mediocre today. Sophomore Alaina Dierman continues to score well for us. She played Varsity for us last year and really struggled in scoring. It's great to see her step up her game and compete this year."
Scotus is in action next when it hosts Lakeview and Boone Central in a triangular Thursday at Quail Run.
Aurora Invite: Aurora won its home invite, shooting a combined 381 and was led by Danica Badura who won the meet with a 73.

Podolak placed 12th with a 110 and Avery Dierman finished in 14th after shooting a 113.
"Jaycee and Alaina did a great job of carrying over consistent play from Thursday's meet at Quail Run," Niedbalski said. "Both had a few shaky shots but were able to work through it. We had discussed in length about trying to avoid the water which comes into play on nearly every hole. Listening to the team discuss their rounds, I thought we did a fairly decent job of doing that.
"We are still leaving a lot of chip shots short struggling to par putt on many of the holes. Those strokes add up very quickly. The team will continue to work on improving our games each week with the goal of a return trip to the Class C State Championship in North Platte on Oct. 14-15."
