Gering graduate Boswell returns to golf course as Bulldogs girls' coach
     2013-08-15      By Terry Gaston    sports@geringcitizen.com
Former Gering High School golf standout Jessica Nemnich Boswell is back on the course for the Bulldogs, this time as the Bulldog girls’ coach.

Boswell, a 2002 graduate of GHS, said the chance to coach is a dream come true.

“This is something I have wanted to do since I graduated from college, just going through that experience and seeing how much the coaches I had always enjoyed their coaching experience,” Boswell said. “So when this opportunity came open, it was perfect, and it works out OK since my husband is a teacher, so we’re not working late.”

As a golfer for the Bulldogs, Boswell placed third at state in 2001 after taking fifth as a sophomore and fourth as a junior.

Boswell then began her college career at Tyler (Texas) Junior College, where she was 18th in the NJCAA National Tournament as a freshman and then made the top 15 as a sophomore.

Boswell then transferred to Tennessee State University, where she made the top 10 of the Ohio Valley Conference Tournament as a senior.

After her college graduation, Boswell was a sixth- and seventh-grade math teacher at an inner-city school in Dallas, Texas. After the Boswells relocated to Gering in 2012, Jessica Boswell took a position as a seventh- and eighth-grade math teacher at Gering Junior High School. She enters her second year in that position.

Her husband, John, is an algebra teacher at Scottsbluff High School.
They have three children: Ali is 10, Tre is 4 and Aubree is 1. John Boswell coaches eighth-grade basketball at Bluffs Middle School.

Boswell and the Bulldogs began practice on Monday, and she is excited to take over a team that returns junior Sam Rahmig, who finished 15th last year in the Class B State Tournament, and other state tournament participants in seniors Amber Fertig and Kendall Bayne and junior Ashlyn Schultz.

“Our four upperclassmen should carry us pretty well,” said Boswell, who has three newcomers on the Bulldogs’ nine-girl team. “They’re all able to break 100, so it should be a decent season.”
