The Nebraska City golf team placed seventh at the Seward Invitational as weather caused a few delays on Friday, August, 24.

With lightning in the area causing delays, all 13 teams were rushed to get the tournament underway.


It was a difficult front nine for the Pioneers, after hitting a hand full of balls to get warmed up.


“Our first nine holes was not good,” Coach Scott Kinnison said.  “Then we came back and played the best back nine we have played in years.”


Kinnison mentioned that the girls shot under 200 during the back nine which is something they have not done in a long time.


Brynn Bohlen shot a 45 on the back nine with a couple of birdies and Sydney Blum shot a 47 with solid par play.  Taelyn Allen shot her best with a 51.  There were a lot of positives on the back half of action.


Bohlen earned a medal by placing 13th after a tough start, but really got into a rhythm towards the end.


With a strong showing on the back nine, Kinnison said he really hopes the team found something that worked for them, as the season progresses.

Nebraska City will be back on the course to face Gretna at the Wildwood Golf Course in Nebraska City on Thursday, August 30, starting at 4 p.m.
