LEXINGTON, Neb. -- The McCook High School girls golf team has been one of the top Class B teams in the western part of the state this fall.
The Bison girls won another team championship in competition at the Lexington Invitational Friday, Sept. 7. McCook shot a low 18-hole score of 350 strokes to easily claim the team title in the meet at the Johnson Lake Golf Course south of Lexington.
North Platte finished a distant second with a 388, and York was third with a 396.
McCOOK CLAIMED the top three individual medals to help run away with the team title.
Kaylee Samway won individual honors with her 18-hole total of 75. Teammate Megan Vetrovsky carded an 80 for second place, and Breanna "Breezy" Redl finished third with an 84.
Jacqui Hager shot a 111 and Karlie Dueland a 128 for McCook's other individual scores.
McCook head coach Randy Ryser said the back nines were strong for his top shooters Friday.
"We had really nice second nines on Friday," Ryser said. "Kaylee Samway shoots 34 on the back, and Breezy (Redl) 39 on the back nine. It made just a real nice comfortable day."
Vetrovsky also improved her second-nine, going from a 42 on the front to a 38 on the back. Hager also improved from front to back, shooting a 59 on the first nine and a 52 on the back.
McCook will likely be one of the favorites to finish in the top three in Class B-4 District competition at Holdrege Oct. 1 and earn a return trip to the Class B state meet. But Coach Ryser and his team know there is a lot of golf to be played before the Bison can worry about districts.
"We like our position maybe a whole lot better where we are, than maybe not playing quite so well," Ryser said. "We'll see Scottsbluff again on Tuesday, and I don't think you can ever have too much information about district opponents. It will be a fun day on Tuesday."
McCook will enter the Gothenburg Invite Tuesday, Sept. 11, at the challenging Wild Horse Golf Course starting at 9 a.m.
Friday, Sept. 7 at Johnson Lake Golf Course
