Photo by Terry Gaston/for the Citizen - Bayard senior Tessa Douglas eyes her sinking put on the second hole during the Bayard Invitational on Aug. 29. Douglas won her first career medalist honor on Thursday and led the Tigers to the Western Trails Conference team title at Bridgeport. 
Bayard senior Tessa Douglas has put in her dues on the Tiger girls’ golf team, and last week she reached the pinnacle of what has been a season filled with improvements in nearly every tournament.
Douglas won her first career individual title in the Western Trails Conference Golf Tournament at Bridgeport’s Court House & Jail Rock Golf Course, which was conducted within the Bridgeport Invitational won by the Gering junior varsity.

Gering junior Jaylen Beam won the invitational’s medalist honor with a 97. The Bulldog junior varsity won the team title with a 445, followed by Bayard’s winning WTC score of 463 with Bridgeport in third at 466.

Douglas was one of three Bayard to finish in the WTC top 10, leading the Tigers to their first conference team championship. Douglas, who shot a winning WTC score of 103, was joined by teammates Catherine Applegate in sixth at 115 and Carissa Wolf in seventh at 116.
Bayard ended on top of the WTC standings with a 463. Bridgeport finished just three shots back in second with a 466 and Mitchell followed in third with a 496.

Douglas ended two shots ahead of Mitchell junior Myranda Musfelt of Mitchell, who finished runner-up with a 105. Bridgeport’s Cassidy Mitchell followed in third with a 106.

Also winning individual medals with top-10 WTC finishes was Mitchell’s Ashley Jackson in ninth with a 127.
Following Beam in the Bridgeport Invite for the Gering JV were sophomore Baily Kreider in ninth at 111 and Allysa Hoagland in 10th at 113. D.J. Bokelman came in at 124.

Douglas’ 103 placed her in second in the full meet, with Musfelt in third. Rachel Hancock of the Scottsbluff JV finished in seventh with her 108.

Bearcats dominate at Alliance

Many of the same teams that played at Bridgeport on Thursday were in Alliance on Saturday for the Bulldogs’ invitational meet at Skyview Golf Course.

But they all were also-rans to the hot-shooting Scottsbluff Bearcats, who won their fourth straight team title behind senior Jordan York’s fourth consecutive individual medalist performance.
The Bearcats shot a 362, with York carding a winning round of 76 for her fifth No. 1 finish of the season.

Scottsbluff ended 14 shots ahead of Sidney’s 376 in the team race. Gering followed in third with a season-best 384.
York continued with her consistent play of late, hitting the front nine in 37 strokes and the back side in 39. York finished seven strokes ahead of Gering’s Sam Rahmig, who placed runner-up with an 83.

Scottsbluff junior Hannah Holloway followed in third place with her round of 86. Freshman teammate Shelby Poynter followed Holloway with a 97, two strokes from making the top 10. Also for the Bearcats, junior Karlie Johnson had a season low 103 and Jocelyn Bruner finished with a 107.

Scottsbluff will close out its regular-season schedule by competing in the Greater Nebraska Athletic Conference Tournament on Friday in Norfolk.

Also medaling were Mitchell’s Musfelt, who finished fifth with a 90, and Gering’s Hoagland in ninth with a 95.
The final action of the regular season for many of the remaining local golfers was at the Best in the West Classic on Wednesday at Monument Shadows Golf Course in Gering. Scottsbluff finishes its regular-season slate Friday at the Greater Nebraska Athletic Conference Tournament in Norfolk.

District golf action is set for Monday, with the B-4 meet at Lexington’s Lakeside Country Club and C-5 action at Ogallala’s West Wind Golf Course.
