Three Peat is So Sweet for Broken Bow Girls Golf Team

The Broken Bow girls golf team repeated as the Class C state team champion for the third year in a row.  Broken Bow concluded the Class C state tournament with a second day team score of 340 on Tuesday at Elks Country Club in Columbus.  The Lady Indians battled through windy conditions on day two of the tournament and still bettered their day one score by 8 strokes.  KCNI/KBBN sports was informed that Broken Bow’s two day team score of 688 was the second lowest team score in Class C state tournament history.  Equally impressive was the fact that Broken Bow had four medalists as Camryn Johnson, Molly Custer, Taylor Schaaf, and Lainey Palmer all placed in the top 15.  Johnson led the way finishing at 12 over par for the tournament with a two day total 156 which was second best overall to claim the silver medal.  The Class C individual champion was Olivia Lovegrove who shot 1 under par for the tournament with a two day total 143.  Molly Custer and Taylor Schaaf finished in a tie for 7th.  Each finished with a two day total of 176.  Lainey Palmer, the lone senior on the team, improved her day one score by 8 strokes on Tuesday to finish with a two day total of 180 to finish in a tie for 13th place.  Skylar Benjamin also improved on her day one score finishing with a 93 on day two after a 97 on day one.  The top four scores from each team are calculated into the team score.  To show how deep and strong Broken Bow’s team was this season, Benjamin’s scores did not figure into the Broken Bow team scoring but would have counted for any other team in the tournament.

Congratulations Broken Bow girls golf team!!
