Individually for the Lady Jays, Sydney Erickson placed 5th with a 96, and Samantha Svendsen shot a 102 to place 13th. Amber Albrecht placed 20th with a 109, Paige Johnson shot a 114 to place 26th, and Haley Dohmen placed 32nd with a 123.

The state meet was held in North Platte on Monday and Tuesday and Wednesday, October 9 and 10.

“They didn’t golf as well as they had been, but they were able to pull it off and get 3rd and qualify for state,” coach Melinda Stelling said. “That was one of their goals, and they accomplished it. Hopefully we can get some personal bests a state and come home with a trophy.”
