The Beatrice girls golf team took third place in the inaugural Trailblazer Conference Meet on Wednesday.
Beatrice finished with a team score of 406, which put them behind conference champion Ralston (395) and second place Nebraska City (403). They finished ahead of Platteview (488) and Plattsmouth (525).
The Lady O got four golfers into the top 10. Makenna Hutt finished in fifth with a score of 98 while Kiera Paquette finished sixth with a score of 99.
Blake Trusty finished in ninth with a score of 104 while Paige Southwick and Makenna Parde both tied for 10th with a score of 105. Maddie Nielsen rounded out the Lady O's scoring with a 14th place score of 116.
"It was nice to get four into the top ten," said Beatrice Coach Dick Stuart. "We had trouble today with big numbers, especially on the front nine."
Brynn Bohlen of Nebraska City won the individual championship with a score of 87 while Grace Gonka of Ralston was second with a 92 and Sydney Blum of Nebraska City was third with a 94.
Beatrice also hosted a dual with Lincoln Pius X on Monday at the Beatrice Country Club. Paquette led the way for the Lady O with a 46 while Paige Southwick shot a 51, Makenna Hutt shot a 54, Makenna Parde shot a 55 and Maddie Nielsen shot a 57.
Stuart said the team's performance against Lincoln Pius X was not their best effort.
"It wasn't indicative of what we are capable of," Stuart said. "We need to concentrate on what we can control and not those things we cannot control."
The Beatrice girls golf team will be in action again on Monday when they travel to the district meet in Nebraska City.
Stuart said Beatrice's goal is to finish in the top three at districts.
"In order to do that, we each player to concentrate on every shot and do their best to be mentally strong for 18 holes," Stuart said. "We need to work on the physical and mental issues so we can accomplish our goals."
