On a breezy day, with the greens rolling fast, Kimball shot a 358 team score to win over the 10-team field. Chadron was runner-up with 390, followed by Morrill with 402, Alliance JV 412, Mitchell 420, Scottsbluff JV 424, Kimball JV 441, Ogallala 444, Mitchell JV 445 and Bayard 462.

Although the scores were a bit higher than usual, Coach Chad Wise again commented, "The weather was not that bad, but a little breezy. This is a tough course and the greens were much smoother and faster than we have seen this year. We will take the win and all of our golfers bringing home medals was a positive."
A busy weekend for the Longhorns with back-to-back conference tournaments. On Friday, they play at the Rivers Edge course in North Platte in the SPVA Conference and Saturday it is back to Morrill for the Western Trails Conference Tournament with starting tee time both days set for 9 a.m.
The Kimball High Boy's Golf Team won their third consecutive team title of the season at the Morrill Tournament this past week, but then saw their streak end with a runner-up finish at the Chase County Tournament held at the Enders Golf course.
The Longhorns shot 322 for their win at Morrill, followed by Bridgeport with 334, Morrill 363, Chadron 365, Gordon-Rushville 371, Gering JV 379, Mitchell 387, Crawford 395, Hemingford 433 and Bayard 438.
Eric Stevens of Bridgeport was medalist of the day with his round of 73. Kimball's Dillon Wise was runner-up for medalist honors with his round of 76. All five Kimball golfers finished in the top ten medal group with Andrew McCloud 3rd at 79, Izaac Reuter 7th with 83, Zane Anthony 8th with 84 and Brendan Walker 9th with 84.
The Horns saw their win streak end at the Chase County Invite when Perkins County took the team championship with a round of 353 with Kimball runner-up with 370. A 370 score is way high for Kimball, but Coach Chad Wise said, "This was the worst weather I have ever been involved with a golf tournament. The winds were pretty steady at around 50 miles per hour and gusting to 70. It was very cold, and it also was the first time any of us had seen the golf course."
All the individual scores were also very high, with the medalist being the number 5 golfer from McCook, Michaelis Malson, shooting a winning round of 84. Kimball's Dillon Wise was runner-up for 2nd place honors with his round of 86. Zane Anthony was 5th with 88. Izaac Reuter was 13th with 98, Brendan Walker 14th with 98, and Andrew McCloud 15th with 99.
Other team scores behind Perkins County and Kimball saw McCook with 377, Hershey 388, Sutherland 414, Chase County 426 and Ogallala 455.
