Area golf action strong

Bayard finished as the runner-up in the team standings Thursday at the Creek Valley Invitational in Chappell.
Bayard shot a 465 to place second behind Dundy County-Stratton, which claimed the team title with a 422. Bayard senior Tessa Douglas led the Tigers with a seventh-place finish in the individual standings by carding a 104.

Musfelt ended on top with a 102. Kimball’s Jaycie Walker finished one shot back in second with a 103 and Bridgeport’s Cassidy Mitchell followed in third with a 105.
