RAPID CITY— The South Central girls’ golf team won the girls’ state Class B golf tournament Tuesday at the Elks Club golf course in Rapid City.
South Central shot a 268 on day one and a 291 on day two to claim the title with a total score of 559.
“It feels really awesome to win,” South Central golf coach Billie Jo Indahl said. “We won every tournament we were in this season, so winning the state title was really the icing on the cake. On the first day of play, we shot amazing and we had an 11 stroke lead after (Monday).”
Indahl said the team struggled on Tuesday and didn’t shoot as well in the second round, but was still able to grab the win by six strokes.
“I think a little bit of nerves got the girls (Tuesday) but it was always a goal of ours to win state, and we were always in contention for the title. We were consistent all season and our scores were up there with the top scores in the state and I knew we had a chance.”
Deuel finished in second place with a score of 565 and Sully Buttes rounded out the top three with a score of 567.
Scotland’s score of 618 was good for eighth place, Platte-Geddes finished in 10th place with a score of 632 and Howard came in 13th place with a score of 655.
Kristen Shanahan led South Central in the individual standings. Her score of 174 was good for third place and Sydney Benter shot a 177 to come in eighth place. Teresa Opbroek shot a 208 for 49th and Caitlyn Mayer finished 54th overall with a 216.
Kellie Winckler of Andes Central came in seventh place with a score of 176, Taylor Anshutz of Gregory took fifth place with a score of 175 and Scotland’s Maggie Fiscel took 11th place with a score of 181.
Shanahan and Anshutz also made the all-tournament team.
