Boone Central junior Abby Brodersen just missed a third consecutive district gold medal, finishing as the C-2 individual runner-up at Oakland Golf Club Oct. 8.
Brodersen, who has won seven tournaments in 2019, qualified for a third Class C State Tournament berth with an 18-hole round of 87, six strokes back of West Point-Beemer’s Brook Diekemper (81). The Cardinal standout got off to a bit of a slow start, shooting 46 on the front nine before coming back with a closing 41 on the back side of the round. Diekemper, meanwhile, was a model of consistency, carding 41/40.
“Abby struggled to begin the front nine. I think there was a little pressure to win again, since she won the last two years in district,” Boone Central Coach Dennis Walters commented. “The girl from West Point-Beemer was playing very well and making some long putts.
“Playing make-up is very hard, but Abby shot a 41 on the back nine to secure second.”
Brodersen competed in the Class C state tournament Monday and Tuesday at Lake Maloney Golf Course in North Platte, seeking a second consecutive state medal (12th in 2018).
“I think she will do well at state, “ Walters said. “She knows the course since she played it twice this summer and played it at state her freshman year.”
Note: Abby Brodersen placed second in the Class C Girls State Golf Championships at North Platte’s Lake Maloney Golf Club Oct. 14-15. The Cardinal junior shot rounds of 78/82 to finish with a 160 total, four strokes behind Cozad sophomore Lynzi Becker. Further details in the Oct. 23 edition of the Albion News.
