Jayvee golfers open season at DCS
Chase County’s jayvee golfers kicked off this year’s season with the Dundy County Stratton meet in Benkelman Tuesday, April 4.
The varsity was scheduled to open their season that day as well at Bayard but the meet was called off due to excessive rain there prior to the meet.
Emma Ferguson, Lauren Prior, Ethan Clermont and Nike Smith competed for CCS.
Prior led the scoring for CCS with a 126. Clermont finished with a 142 followed by Ferguson with a 147 and Smith a 153.
Perkins County won the team competition with a 346, which was 31 strokes better than second place DCS. Medicine Valley was third with a 381.
Preston Carbaugh of Cambridge won medalist honors with a 75. Josh Johnston was Perkins County’s leading golfer with an 80, which was good for second place.
The varsity is scheduled to compete in the Bridgeport invite today (Thursday).
Coach Munger said there was a lack of communication about the Bayard meet being called off.
He said they traveled there last Tuesday, only to find an empty parking lot at the Bayard course.
He said they stopped and played the Grant course on their way back since they will play there April 18.
Munger said neither he nor Athletic Director Troy Hauxwell received the e-mail notifying schools of the cancellation. They suspected it was sent to an old e-mail address for the school.
