The rains stopped at around 7 a.m. on Monday morning and that allowed 12 regional teams to tee it up at the Scottsbluff High School Boys Invite at the Scotts Bluff Country Club.
It took extra holes to decide the individual champion with Blake Danni of Cheyenne East besting Cheyenne Central’s Ethan Cates on the third playoff hole to win the title. Dillon Wise of Kimball was also part of the playoff but he he was eliminated on the first playoff hole.
The team title went to North Platte with a combined round of 317 and then it was Cheyenne East close behind in second place with 319 for the day.
Scottsbluff finished as the top local team in fourth place with a score of 347. Alliance was fifth (350), Kimball sixth (352), and Gering was the seventh place finisher (353). Just a six shot difference between those four teams.
Wise, of course, the top local finisher with that 75 and then you also had Cade Stephenson of Alliance finish eighth, shooting 80. Also with a round of 80 in tenth place was Ty Corr of Scottsbluff.
Gering’s top score came from Justin Scott, who posted a 83.
