Young players gain valuable experience at county meet
COZAD—Without injured team leader Anna Boson, the Swede golfers were at a disadvantage during the Dawson County meet at the Cozad Country Club on Friday.
“Younger players are learning that experience can be a cruel but necessary teacher,” said coach Jim Henke.
Host Cozad won the team title shooting 569. Lexington was second at 611 and Gothenburg took third with a team total of 635.
Rachael Leibhart of Lexington was the top medalist with 90.
Heidi Teahon had a good day, Henke said, earning fifth place with a total of 107.
Jourdan Matthies also medaled in eighth with a 12-stroke improvement on the back nine for 118 total.
Kristin Bartlett and Sydney Sell played well on the back nine, Henke said, but had trouble on the front fairways which had just been aerated and were rough. They shot 126 and 132 respectively.
It was only the second meet for freshman Courtney Brown and an inauguration for junior Kirsten Soncksen and freshman Kelsey Kuhlman.
