CASPER, Wyo. – The Scottsbluff girls’ golf team knocked off 14 strokes from its season-best, four-player score Friday in claiming second place at the Casper Invitational.

The tournament had been scheduled for Thursday and Friday, but because of inclement weather conditions on Wednesday and Thursday, the tourney was shortened to one 18-hole round Friday.
Despite having to wait for about four inches of snow to melt off and the tee boxes and greens to thaw out, play finally began late Friday morning.

Eighteen holes later, Scottsbluff senior Jordan York was the second-place finisher with a 75. Caitlyn Skavdahl of Casper-Natrona County won medalist honors with a 73.
Scottsbluff junior Hannah Holloway also medaled for the Bearcats with an 86 to finish in sixth. Also for Scottsbluff, Shelpy Poynter carded a 105, Karlie Johnson came in at 112 and Hailey Sanderson scored a 133.

Including Johnson’s fourth-place score, Scottsbluff’s four-player total of 378 bettered its best full team score at 392.
Wyoming scores just the top-three golfers in team results, however. So Natrona County was the team victor at 233 and Scottsbluff’s 266 was good for second place.

The Bearcats will be at home Saturday for the annual Scottsbluff Invitational at the Scotts Bluff Country Club. The tournament starts at 9 a.m.

Chadron golfer, Sidney team dominate play at Mitchell tourney

MITCHELL – At the Mitchell Invitational on Friday, Chadron’s Alpine Hickstein was the dominant individual medalist with a 17-stroke victory at Scenic Knolls Golf Course.

Hickstein cruised through the course with a score of 80 (41-39), outplaying Mitchell junior and runner-up Myranda Musfelt and her 97 (49-48). Bayard senior Tessa Douglas finished in third at 98 (52-46). Two Bridgeport golfers, Kassi Marx (100) and Cassidy Mitchell (101), rounded out the top five.

Sidney won the team title with a four-player score of 440, two better than Bridgeport and three lower than Bayard. Creek Valley was the only other school with a team score, finishing fourth at 480.
