There’s no sugar-coating it. Rain and cold temps made for miserable conditions at the Class C girls state golf tourney held at River’s Edge Golf Course in North Platte last week.
Monday wasn’t great weather. Tuesday wasn’t any better. In fact, it only got worse. With the temperature dropping and rain continuing to fall, the NSAA eventually called off action midway through the round.
With day two golf being called off, only scores from day one were used.
“It was downright miserable weather, and I just feel sorry for the girls,” Cadet head coach Keith Eriksen said. “Our team had a phenomenal season and it is very unfortunate that the tournament played out the way it did.”
Despite crummy weather, West Point-Beemer did enjoy a top 10 finish. The Cadets tied for 7th with Bridgeport and Columbus Scotus with a 444.
“To finish in seventh [at state] was big for our program,” Eriksen said. “We are very proud of our kids. They are a great group of girls.”
