GIRARD, Kan. -- Nevada finished in third place at an 18-hole golf tournament here Thursday, shooting 421 as a team. Meanwhile, Fort Scott only sent two players who struggled with the course.
Girard was team champion with a four-woman score of 414 and also had the individual high medalist as Timbrelee McNair shot 38 on the front nine and 45 on the back for a total of 83.
McNair finished nine strokes ahead of runner-up Emmaly Ellis of Nevada, who shot 46-45--91. Morgan Turner placed fourth for NHS with a 47-50--97.
Hannah Householder just missed a medal by one stroke as she shot 54-50--104 for Nevada. Danielle Smith's 63-66--129 rounded out the four scores that counted toward the team total. Jenny Mosbrucker scored 63-69--132 and Maddie Johnson shot 71-69--140.
Karley Stark, who medaled in Fort Scott's season-opening tournament Tuesday, found the going tough here and finished at 61-63--124. Morgan Robertson scored 66-68--134.
"Neither could seem to string together enough consistent shots to score well, though they did have some positives on the day," Fort Scott head coach Karen Curran said. "Once they got the greens figured out, they putted pretty well."
Nevada is scheduled to compete at Marshfield Monday with tee time at 9 a.m. Fort Scott will be at the Chanute Tournament Monday, which begins at 3 p.m.
