The Chant golf team survived some shaky play on a cold, windy day to take another championship, this time the Kearney Catholic Invitational. The Chants won by only two strokes over Hastings St. Cecilia shooting a score of 332 to the Bluehawks 334. Wood River was third with a 346.
Coach Mike Bechtold said it was a testament to the depth of the golf team that they could win a meet in this fashion.
"We had some guys really step thier game up and contribute to the team score." said Coach Bechtold, "I can't think of a meet ever, that saw a team's number one man score not count and still win the meet."
Bechtold referred to Brady Rogers, whose score of 89 was not included in the scoring.
"Brady finally had on off day," said Bechtold, "It took four years but he finally shot a score that kept him out of the medals. He has been a wonderfully consistent golfer for us and I'm sure he will rebound just fine."
Tanner Bundy lead the Chants with an 80 and medaled 4th, Ethan John shot 83 for 7th and Colton Zulkoksi 84 for 8th. Cy Trofholz rounded out the scoring with an 85 for 11th.
"Tanner was striking the ball very well and put himself in great position all day," said Coach Bechtold, "If he would have made a few putts, he would have won the meet."
Bechtold said the play of Trofholz has been a pleasant surprise.
"Cy has played very steady golf for a player who oftentimes is seeing the course for hte first time, I am really happy with where he is at."
Bechtold said the season is progressing nicely for the Chants.
"Overall, we seem to be right on the cusp of being the team we want to be," Bechtold said, "a little conistency here and some putting work there and we can return to that top echelon of teams in the state we reached last year."
The Chanticleer track teams competed in the Central Nebraska All-Area meet on Monday,
April 25 at Grand Island Northwest. On a perfect day for competition, the Chants turned in
several season best marks and a few personal best marks. In the non-scoring meet, the Chants
brought home medals in four events. Kate Grint led the way with two silver medals. The senior
finished second in both the shot put and discus to fellow Lou_Platte Conference member
Addison Henry of Arcadia-Loup City. "Kate had a very good day as she recorded a very
consistent set of throws in both the shot and discus", Coach Derry Trampe commented. Grint
tossed the shot put 38' 2" and the discus 128' 1". The 4 X 400 and 4 X 800 relay teams for the
girls brought home the other two medals from the meet as both teams finished third. The 4 x 400
team of Andrea Carson, Morgan Alexander, Ashley Carson, and Jordan Kuck combined to run a
season best time of 4:11.60 to claim third. The 4 x 800 team of Morgan Alexander, Zoe Ritz,
Ashley Carson, and Andrea Carson also established a new season best time 10:08.23 to claim
third. In addition to the medal winners the Chants also had three athletes establish new personal
best marks. Zoe Ritz set a new personal best mark in the 3200 when she finished 5th in a time of
12:05.38. Also, Ali Smith and Jesse Ulrich both recorded personal best times in the 800-meter
run. Smith finished 6th in her race with a time of 2:28.29 while Ulrich was 7th in his race in a time
Additional results from the meet included: Jordan Kuck 4th in the 300 low hurdles (47.47);
Morgan Alexander tied for 4th in the pole vault (9' 6"); Cora Svoboda missed opening height in
the pole vault (9' 0"); The 4 X 100 relay team of Andrea Carson, Danielle Bruha, Grace Racek,
and Jordan Kuck 7th (52.83);; Robbie Peterson 10th in the 1600-meter run (5:06.71); Nate Wells
11th in the 1600-meter run (5:09.24); Jordan Coufal 7th in the 300-meter intermediate hurdles
(43.30); Clark Bredthauer 6th in the high jump (5' 10"); the 4 x 400 relay team of Cade Svoboda,
Ethan Thomsen, Reggie McKenney, and Jordan Coufal 6th (3:39.93); and the 4 x 800 relay team
of Robbie Peterson, Noah Jensen, Nate Wells, and Jesse Ulrich 6th (8:42.58).
Brady Rogers shot an even par 72 to lead the Chant golfers to the the championship of the O'Neill Invitational. Ord shot a 320 as a team to defeat Hartington Cedar Catholic by 8 strokes. Host O'Neill was a distant third at 337.
Rogers used 4 birdies to offset 4 bogeys on his way to an outstanding 72. It was the lowest score at the O'Neill meet since 2006 despite windy conditions.
Ethan John shot a 79 to finish 6th and Colton Zulkoski finished 7th with an 81. Tanner Bundy carded an 88 for the 15th place medal and Cy Trofholz shot an 89, just out of the medals.
Coach Mike Bechtold said the score of 320 was exactly the same score the Chants shot last year while winning this meet.
"The progress the team is making is on par with last year at this time," said Coach Bechtold, "and last year we wound up with a trophy at state. Hopefully, we can continue to progress and get back to that position."
