The Broken Bow girls golf team will compete Monday and Tuesday at the Class C state girls golf championships at the Elks Country Club in Columbus. The achievements have been many for this year’s group. Broken Bow won the C4 district meet at Indianhead golf course in Grand Island to qualify for the state tournament and posted the lowest team score of all Class C district team scores. The Lady Indians claimed its first Southwest Conference team championship in school history this year and set school records for 9 and 18 hole team scores in doing so. Now the team looks to add one more significant accomplishment to the list.
The state golf tournament is a two day 36 hole event with round one Monday and round two on Tuesday. Five golfers will compete for the Lady Indians with the top four individual scores making up the final team score. All five Broken Bow golfers will start the opening day of the tournament on the front 9 of the 18 hole course. Pairings for the opening day are based on district scores. Avery Campbell will be the first of the Lady Indians off the tee today in the 9:45 group. Graycee Oeltjen will follow her teammate in the 9:54 group. Madison Jackson will tee off at 10:30 followed by Emery Custer at 10:48 and Camryn Johnson will be in the second to last group teeing off at 11:06. Central Nebraska’s Sports Source will be reporting live from the state tournament each day providing hourly updates on KBBN 95.3 FM and kbbn.com beginning in the 9 am hour.
