Bearcats qualify for state golf

Kearney junior Jace Kratzenstein tees off on the 16th at Meadowlark Hills, May 15, 2017 (NTV News)

Kearney High combines to shoot a 310 and finish second in the A1 district meet at Meadowlark Hills and qualify as a team for the state tournament.

Jace Kratzenstein, a junior, led the way for the Bearcats by tying for 5th with a 75. He had a tough two-putt par on the 15th to keep his momentum going.

Sophomore Jake Ellis was a stroke back of Kratzenstein for Kearney, as the only two in the top 10. Senior Maverick Widdowson got back to the clubhouse under 80 with his 79.

Perhaps the story of the day for Kearney was Trevor Kroenke. The freshman went out on the back nine with a 47, but at the turn he was able to drop a stroke per hole including a birdie on the 9th, his 18th hole of the day.

Even with Kroenke's great day, his score did not count for Kearney. An 80 from Will Porter, a junior, resulted in the 4th best score for KHS, and only the top four scores count for the team total.
