LINCOLN — In last year’s Class C state golf meet, anxious St. Cecilia fans and players had to wait until the last players walked off of the course to determine a team champion.
On Thursday, the Bluehawks did not want to wait around. Instead, they took control of the meet and made sure there was no doubt they walked away with a first-place trophy.
St. Cecilia finished the day with 308 to make for a two-day total of 622 at the Class C state meet at Mahoney Golf Course in Lincoln. The Bluehawks’ team score was 18 strokes better than second-place David City.
“From the start of the season, this was what we had in mind, winning a championship,” said STC’s Lance Schmidt. “Last year, it was kind of tough coming up short by one stroke, but that’s what happens when you have one bad day... All season long we’ve been preparing for this. It’s now here, and we feel good about it.”
