LINCOLN -- The Beatrice boys golf team competed at the Capital City Invite on Thursday at Yankee Hill Country Club in Lincoln.
Beatrice finished 16th out of 24 teams with a score of 356. Norfolk won the team championship with a score of 296 while Southwest was second at 311 and Milllard North was third with a 317.
Beatrice was just one of two Class B teams to compete at the invite.
"It is always good to play in some Class A tournaments during the year," said Beatrice Coach Dick Stuart. "Our kids get to play with some better competition and see where we need to get to by the end of the year."
Andrew Paquette led the way for Beatrice, shooting a 41 on the front nine and a 44 on the back nine for an 85.

Trenton Jurgens shot a 45 on the front nine and a 44 on the back nine for an 89 while Brayden Cook also shot an 89 with a 44 on the front nine and a 45 on the back nine.
Kaden Strubel shot a 93 and Bryant Jurgens rounded out the Orangemen scoring with a 99.
"I thought we played better from tee to green," Stuart said. "But we had way too many putts, thus our scores were higher than I thought we should be."
Norfolk swept the top three individual spots in the tournament. Luke Kluver won with a score of 64 while Jake Kluver and John Canham both had a 74.
Beatrice will be in action again on Tuesday when they travel to the Lincoln Southwest Invite at Wilderness Ridge Golf Course in Lincoln.
"We will go to the Lincoln Southwest invite next week and hopefully continue to improve our weaknesses," Stuart said. "I know come district time, when we play at home, our putting will improve."
