If the first two girls’ golf tournaments are any indication of things to come for Gering senior Kaitlyn Krzyzanowski and the Bulldogs as a team, then a big season might be in store for Gering.
Krzyzanowski, who won eight tournaments last season and earned her third Class B state medal with a runner-up finish, and her Bulldog teammates won the Western Conference Tournament title last Saturday at Hillside Golf Course in Sidney.
In becoming the first team since 2005 besides Scottsbluff to win the conference championship, the Bulldogs carded a four-player score of 370, eight strokes ahead of the runner-up Bearcats.
Krzyzanowski led the way for Gering with her top-medalist finish at 81, seven strokes ahead of the runner-up.
Two other Gering golfers placed in the top seven. Sophomore Sam Rahmig finished in sixth with a 94 and junior Kendall Bayne was seventh at 96. Classmate Amber Fertig just missed making the top 10 with her 99, and sophomore Ashlyn Schultz came in at 107.
Second-year Bulldogs coach Annie Boggs said while winning the WC team title was a great accomplishment, obviously improvement remains for Gering.
“We will continue to work hard and improve as the season progresses,” Boggs said. “Obviously we would like to finish in the top three at districts and qualify for the state meet in Lincoln.”
The conference title came four days after the Bulldogs opened the season at Hillside for the Sidney Invitational. Gering finished in a tie for second with McCook at 365, four strokes behind Scottsbluff’s winning total of 361.
Krzyzanowski earned the third-place medal with an 82, while Rahmig was seventh at 87.
Other Gering scores came from Fertig at 94, Bayne at 102 and sophomore Jasie Beam at 112.
“Unlike last year, we have a good picture of where our program currently stands and our future goals,” Boggs said. “We have everyone back from last year’s district team. As the year progresses we will strive to improve with each practice and meet.“
