The defending Class B State Champions are all set to go for the repeat and they’ll have plenty of confidence.
Scottsbluff ripped the course and the competition on Monday at McCook as they won the district tournament with a combined score of 325, which was good for a 96 shot difference over second place Gering.
Scottsbluff was led by district champion, sophomore Anna Kelley, who topped the leaderboard with a round of 77. Scottsbluff’s exclamation point on yesterday was putting all five players in the top six.
Gering’s Madi Schlaepfer took the tiebreaker from Emily Krzyzanowski of Scottsbluff and finished second, both players shot rounds of 79.
Gering finished second in the team standings with a 421 and then Alliance was third at 427. Both of those teams also advanced to state next week.
Gering’s Monument Shadows course will host the Class B State Tournament next Monday and Tuesday.
