Shamrock girls second at home invite
Scotus Central Catholic girls golf shot a team score of 419 and finished second behind Grand Island Central Catholic at its annual home invite on Wednesday at Quail Run.
“Scotus made some improvement today over what we shot at the Conference Tournament,” Scotus head coach Tanya Niedbalski said in comments sent to the Telegram.
“We made some mistakes again today, but we did a better job of recovering from those mistakes than we did on Saturday. Some penalty strokes hurt us again. We have got to play smarter, not harder.”
Niedbalksi specifically highlighted Alania Dierman as someone who had a big day.
“Our No. 5 golfer, freshman Alaina Dierman’s score of 105 was a huge blessing for us,” she said. “We were battling with Norfolk Catholic for 2nd Place and were one stroke behind them when our last golfers came in. Alaina’s 105 was our savior today!”
Niedbalski said the entire team needs to contribute in order for them to have succsess the remained of the season.
“We don’t have one dominant player - it is a team effort every meet and the girls know that they have to contribute,” she said. “Everyone’s score is important and that was proven today.”
The next meet for Scouts is the District Tournament held at Indian Trails Country Club on Monday. The top three teams at that site and the top 10 individuals will qualify for the state tournament a week later at Lake Maloney Golf Club in North Platte.
Individual Scotus Results: 6. Makenzie Enderlin - 97, 9. Hannah Allen - 103, 10. Alaina Dierman - 105, 13. Jaycee Ternus - 112 and Avery Dierman - 117.
