LINCOLN -- The Beatrice girls golf team went out and shot their lowest team score of the year Tuesday at the Lincoln Pius X Invitational at Woodland Hills Golf Course.
The Lady O shot 425, which was good enough for 12th place in a tournament filled with Class A schools.
"We played a golf course as hard as any and against stiff competition," said Beatrice Coach Dick Stuart. "This is a great way for our girls to learn and also wee where we want to get in the future."
Payton Neunaber was Beatrice's low player with a score of 104.
"We continue to have someone new lead us each time out," Stuart said.
Not far behind Neumaber was Blake Trusty, who finished with a 105. Sydney Southwick and Mackenzie Barnard each finished with scores of 108 while Abby Jones rounded out the scoring with a 117.
"We need each player to continue to work and try a way to eliminate three or four shots on each nine," Stuart said. "We feel this is very possible. All of our nines were in the fifties and we need to get some of these into the forties."
Lincoln Southwest won the team championship with a score of 332 while Grand Island finished second with a 348 and Omaha Marian finished third at 354.
Millard West's Izzi Puk was the individual champion with a score of 75 while Julea Culiver of Omaha Marian finished second with a 76. Aspen Luebbe of Columbus, Faith Harris of Grand Island and Brynn Sunquist of Lincoln Southwest rounded out the top five with scores of 78.
Beatrice will be in action again on Friday when they travel to the Grand Island Invite.
