Golfers hoping for better weather this week

This spring’s cold, snowy and rainy weather has played with this year’s high school golf season.
Coach Larry Munger said four tournaments have been rescheduled due to weather.
The Longhorns held their invitational April 13 in less than ideal weather conditions but did manage to get the tournament in. That’s been the last tournament they’ve played in.
Munger said not only have they missed tournaments but they’ve missed valuable practice time as well.
The weather forecast finally holds some good news, with temperatures getting warmer as the week progresses. That will be good news for the golfers who will resume tournament play today (Thursday).
They will play in the Garden County invite today and travel to Sutherland Friday for the SPVA meet.
The varsity will play in the Creek Valley meet at Chappell Tuesday, April 30, while the jayvees will go to Cambridge for the Southwest meet.
On Thursday, May 2, two meets are scheduled. Perkins County moved their meet to that date after a weather postponement. The St. Pat’s meet at Iron Eagle in North Platte is also the same day.
Munger said the varsity will play in one meet with the jayvees likely going to the other.
The C5 district meet will be May 13 at Meadowlark Hills in Kearney.
