Four ... That's four consecutive years as District champs! Kimball's boys golf team members hold up four fingers after winning the 2019 Class C District team title at the tournament in Cambridge.

With all of the spring sports canceled, I thought maybe we could take a look back at last year by repeating a story I wrote when our Kimball boys golf team won its fourth consecutive District Golf Title.

Enjoy the memory!

The Kimball High Boys Golf Team took care of business one more time in winning its fourth straight District Championship Monday at the Cross Creek Golf Links in Cambridge.

The three senior varsity golfers on the team have been a part of those four District titles, and all three seniors were in the top 10 medal group on Monday.

Kimball shot a team score of 355 to win by 16 strokes over runner-up Perkins County with 371. Valentine was third with 385. The top three teams advance to State play along with the top ten individuals.

The remaining team scores were Mitchell 387, Bridgeport 392, Cambridge 394, Hershey 396, Sutherland 403, Morrill 422, Gordon-Rushville 442, Hi-Line 449,  Bayard 460, Hemingford 464, and Chase County with no team score.

Carbaugh of Cambridge shot the winning individual round on his home course, winning the medalist honors with a round of 73. Benjamin of Hershey was second with 78, and Drake DeMasters of Bridgeport third with 79.

Dillon Wise lead Kimball scores with his round of 29-41=80 for fourth place. Zane Anthony shot 47-41=88 for eighth place,  and Izaak Reuter shot 48-42=90 to finish in a 3-way tie for 10th. Jess Heide-Sieren had a round of 48-49=97, and Cole Henton shot 47-54=101.

Kimball Coach Chad Wise said, "It was a tough course and a real challenge for the golfers. The rough was long and the greens were smooth and fast. It tested our players, but in the end we got the job done and we won."

As for the weather conditions, it might have been the best the Kimball golfers have seen all season.

Wise, Anthony and Reuter now get ready for their fourth consecutive State Tournament play which will take place this coming Tuesday-Wednesday, May 21-22, at the Meadowlark Hills Golf Course in Kearney.

For the two sophomores, Henton and Heide-Sieren, it will be their first state tournament play.
