Girls Golf Hopes to Compete At State Another Year

The girls golf team has a chance to play at state once again this year. The Class A girls golf district pairings came out and Westside will head out to Kearney to compete for a shot at state later this season. 

The Warriors placed second in their latest tournament at Willow Lakes in the Bellevue West Invite. Sophomore Kaitlyn Hanna shot a 73 to take first place. Junior Maddi DiPrima shot a 93 to take 8th place. Sophomore Claire Bonnett shot a 97 to end in 12h place while Junior Portia Lenczowski shot a 95 and placed 10th.

Lenczowski has seen how the team has played so far and said that she likes the team’s chances to make it to state both this season and in the coming years. 

“I think we have a pretty good chance [at state] as long as everyone keeps working hard,” Lenczowski said. “We aren’t losing any seniors so we can only get better.”

Lenczowski said that she is also looking to continue to practice like she’s playing and to start playing further distances on the course to get adjusted. Kaitlyn Hanna had an incredible outing at Willow lakes and said that she has similar aspirations to Lenczowski.

“I hope that we continue to be in contention in tournaments,” Hanna said. “Being in contention will always get us to our ultimate goals, like making a run at metro, districts, and, of course, state.”

Hanna is hopeful for everyone to continue working hard and to break the record once again. The Warriors will compete at metros today, October 1.
