Golfers place 4th at Cozad; B-4 district here Monday
Swedes to host meet at Wild Horse.
COZAD—A light rain all day accompanied by cold wind made for brutal golf conditions again this season affecting individual and team scores during the Cozad Invite on Monday.
The Swedes managed a fourth-place tie with Chase County in the team race behind solid play by senior Derek Franzen.
Gothenburg’s 368 was 25 strokes behind an outstanding performance by North Platte St. Pat’s, which took the team title with a scoring total of 343.
Franzen finished ninth in a field of 54 players shooting 44 and 43 for an 87 total.
Jeramie VanAcker tied for 15th but lost out on a medal after a handicap hole countback was used to break the tie.
Matthew Marshall and Coltin Bebensee completed the scoring for the Swedes with their steady play.
“The team is still looking for the time that they will all play well on the same day and hopefully that day will be at the district meet on Monday,” said coach Jim Henke.
The Swedes host the B-4 district meet at Wild Horse Golf Club. The first tee time is 9:30 a.m.
Teams involved are Alliance, Broken Bow, Chadron, Cozad, Gering, Gothenburg, Lexington, McCook, Ogallala, Scottsbluff, Sidney and Valentine.
The first three teams and the first 10 individual places plus ties qualify for the Class B state championship at Meadowlark Hills Golf Course in Kearney beginning May 25.
