Bombers finish eighth at state


Dan Lingle

Barnum golf team members and coaches (Brent Donaldson, Brandi Lekander, Madeline Nelson, Kelsey Timm, Emilia Scherk, Janie Bird, Geana Guillard, Cullen Franek) attend the state Class A golf tournament at Pebble Creek June 9-10.

The Barnum Bombers ladies golf teams headed to the state Class A golf tournament at Pebble Creek Golf Course in Becker for the second consecutive year.

The ladies headed to state with a couple goals, first to improve their scores from the previous year, second to improve their standings over the previous year.

After the first day of the tournament the ladies showed huge improvement over the previous year's scores with all the ladies improving from just a few strokes to many strokes.

After the first day of golf the ladies found themselves trailing in eighth place, but only 14 strokes behind sixth place. The ladies headed into the second day of the tournament with the goal of taking over seventh or even sixth place.

Despite starting out strong the ladies found themselves falling behind, as the other golfers on the course improved their first day scores. The Bombers showed the other teams at the tournament they have the ability to compete at the class A golf tournament, improving over 100 strokes from the previous year's scores. The ladies found themselves only 35 strokes behind the next team at the end of the tournament. The ladies golf program will lose only two golfers this year as Kelsey Timm will graduate and return to the golf course in the fall as a member of the University of Concordia golf team.

The second member of the ladies golf team to leave is an exchange student out of Germany, Emilia Scherk.

The Barnum Bombers will be returning four talented members next year, to try for the three peat. Jamie Bird, Brandi Lekander, Madeline Nelson and Geana Guillard will all return to the golf course in the spring.
