Two golfers medal at Broken Bow Invite
Boson gets 10th, Thompson 13th.
BROKEN BOW—Two Gothenburg golfers earned medals at the Broken Bow Invite on Thursday leading the Swedes on a consistent trek toward improved scoring.
Anna Boson and Sidney Thompson finished 10th and 13th respectively as the Gothenburg team dropped its overall score to 452 for sixth in the team standings.
It was the best team effort so far this season for Gothenburg, said coach Jim Henke.
Kearney Catholic won the team title with a combined 379 and four medalists, including winner Allie VenJohn with a score of 78.
Boson, a junior, shot an 18-hole personal best of 104 with 50 on the second nine to get her first medal this season.
Thompson carded 54 on the first nine and 51 on the second for 105 total.
Henke said freshman Heidi Teahon shot 120 in her second varsity meet, improving her 18-hole score by 15 strokes.
Jourdan Matthies had a rough first nine, Henke said, but battled back with a nine-stroke improvement on the second nine while Brittany Ostergard set a new personal best score of 135.
Becca Else hit the ball down the middle of the fairway, Henke said, but had a little trouble around the greens. She finished with 153.
