     2012-10-01      By Terry Gaston   
The long-awaited District B-4 girls’ golf tournament is Monday in Holdrege, with a field that includes four solid teams that will be playing for only three available team spots to the Class B State Tournament on Oct. 8-9 in Lincoln.

Scottsbluff, Gering and Sidney stated their cases for those berths Saturday in the Alliance Invitational. Scottsbluff shot a four-player score of 343, one off its season‘s-best total, to top runner-up Gering by five strokes. Sidney was a distant third at 371, while Class C force Chadron was fourth at 374.

Gering senior Kaitlyn Krzyzanowski, who is looking to qualify for her fourth state tournament and improve on the second-place finish she scored after a third-place medal as a sophomore, won her sixth individual medalist title of the season and fourth straight gold medal with her score of 81. Sidney’s Rachel Petik was second at 82.
And then came the balanced attack of Scottsbluff Bearcats, who placed all four of their team scorers in the top 10. Junior Kim Moore finished third at 83 and junior Megan Pilkington was seventh at 86.

Sophomore Jordan York was ninth and senior Ashlee Pilkington 10th after both shot scores of 87 and finished among five players tied.

For the first time this season, Krzyzanowski was joined in the top 10 by two Gering teammates. Sophomore Sam Rahmig was fifth at 85 and junior Kendall Bayne took eighth at 87 in winning the five-player scorecard tie-break.

Also for Scottsbluff, Hanna Holloway carded a season-best 92.

Other scorers for Gering had Amber Fertig finish in 19th with a 95 and Ashlynn Schultz in 23rd with a 97. Jasie Beam led the Bulldog junior varsity golfers with a 92 to win the JV medal.

Also in the JV division, Scottsbluff‘s Jocelyn Brunner was ninth at 109 and Katelyn Lambert took 11th at 118. Gering‘s Kaitlyn Wagoner was 15th at 136.

Class C golfers from Bridgeport and Chadron also got a warm-up for Wednesday’s Best in the West Classic at Monument Shadows in Gering and their District C-5 tournament at Ogallala on Monday.

Bridgeport senior Jada Huck, on the heels of winning her home invitational on Thursday, finished the Alliance meet in sixth at 86, while Chadron senior leader Kelli Haynes finished 12th in the five-way tie-break among the golfers who carded 87.

Scottsbluff completes its regular season Friday at the Greater Nebraska Athletic Conference Tournament in Lexington.

WTC Tournament/
Gordon-Rushville Invitational

Both the Western Trails Conference championships and Gordon-Rushville Invitational titles were simultaneously at stake on Monday, and Bridgeport’s Huck and Bayard’s Pilkington finished 1-2 again in each competition.

Huck shot 90 and Pilkington 91, with Bridgeport’s Cassidy Mitchell (fifth in the WTC at 105), Tara Harding (sixth at 106) and Breanna Franklin (eighth at 113) combining with Huck to win both team championships for the Bulldogs at 414. MItchell placed seventh and Harding eighth in the overall G-R standings.

Mitchell’s Snyder shot a 102 that placed her fourth in the WTC standings and fifth in the G-R Invitational.

Other scorers for Mitchell, which had a team count of 508, included Musfelt at 127, Sisson at 137 and Rebecca Leider at 142.

Pilkington had two Bayard teammates make the trip north with her. Douglas turned in a 125 and Brunmeier carded a 145.

After the qualifiers for the Best in the West Classic play in Gering on Wednesday, the Bridgeport, Bayard and Mitchell golfers will be off to Ogallala on Monday for District C-5 state-qualification action at the West Winds Golf Course.

Huck carded a season-low 81 to win medalist honors as the Bulldogs used their home-course advantage to score a season-best team count of 369 at Court House and Jail Rock Golf Course.

The Bulldogs lowered their season-best team count by 12 strokes and outdistanced runner-up Kimball by 52.

Individually, Bayard junior JaLee Pilkington was second to Huck at 89. Scottsbluff’s Holloway earned the eighth-place medal by firing a 101, while Mitchell’s Emily Snyder was ninth, also at 101, and Gering’s Beam took 10th at 103.

Joining Holloway on the Scottsbluff JV were Bruner at 108 and Lambert at 131. Also for the Gering JV, Butler and Wagoner both came in at 126.
