Coach Kelly Cooksley told KCNI/KBBN sports that it has been a great journey and the team has a lot to be thankful for.

The Class C individual champion was Abigail Broderson of Boone Central with a low tournament score of 155.  Defending champion Lynzi Becker of Cozad placed second with a 157.

It is worth noting that Broken Bow lost to only two teams this season and that was at the Lexington Invite where they placed behind North Platte and Scottsbluff.  North Platte claimed the Class A title on Tuesday and Scottsbluff took home the Class B title.
