     2012-10-15      By Terry Gaston   
In the Class C competition at Quail Run Golf Course, Bayard junior JaLee Pilkington picked up a medal in her second trip to state, finishing in a tie for 11th with her count of 93-97 — 190.
Pilkington finished just one stroke back of the top 10 and well back of the deadlock in first, at which Ogallala sophomore Maaika Mestl and Grand Island Central Catholic’s McKenna Kime finished at 166.

Kime, who led the first round by four strikes at 10-over 82, won state medalist honors in a playoff over Mestl and paced Central Catholic to the team championship with scores of 369 and 377 for 746. Ogallala was second at 365-386 — 751. Norfolk Catholic placed third at 386-398 — 784, 10 strokes ahead of fourth-place Chadron at 394-400 — 794.

Bridgeport moved from 14th to ninth in the team standings by chopping 58 strokes off the Bulldogs’ first-day, 14th-place count of 456 — which left them in 14th among the 15 competing teams.

Bridgeport seniors Tara Harding and Jada Huck improved their first-day scores drastically, with Harding following her 108 Monday with a 90 Tuesday to finish at 198 and a tie for 21st. Huck claimed a tie for 28th after following her 109 Monday with a 93 Tuesday for a 202 count.

Other Bridgeport golfers included junior Breanne Franklin, in 70th after knocking 16 strokes off her first-day count for a 122-106 — 228. Junior Kimberly Mueller improved on her score by five strokes in finishing in a three-way tie for 71st at 117-112 — 229. Sophomore Cassidy Mitchell rounded out the Bulldogs’ ladder with her 77th-place score of 232 (123-109).

Mitchell sophomore Emily Snyder improved her first-day score by eight strokes, finishing at 200 and in a tie for 24th place. Snyder’s 96 also improved her standing from a tie for 37th after the first round.

Chadron senior Kelli Haynes finished her prep career with a fifth-place state finish at 175 (87-88).
