The Minden Whippets varsity golf team traveled to Heritage Hills Golf Course in McCook on April 19 to compete in the 16-team McCook Invitational.
Minden placed 14th overall with a team score of 408. McCook won its own invite team title with a score of 309 followed by North Platte with 327 and Gothenburg was third with a 343.
“Cold! The conditions were not ideal,” stated Minden Head Coach Eric Christensen. “It was very cold and the course played very long due to the wet conditions. The kids battled out there, but they all had 3-4 holes that really elevated their scores. I usually don’t put a lot of stock into our scores from the McCook Invite due to the nature of the course. We won’t play any courses like it from here on out. All we can do is keep practicing and work on consistent ball striking and short game skills.”
