DC golf wins Southern Nebraska Conference
David City boys golf took home its first ever Southern Nebraska Conference championship on May 2 after shooting a combined 336 as a group.
Individually, the Scouts crowned a champion as well when Jordan Kracl shot a 75 and finished atop the leaderboard by nine shots.
“I continue to be impressed with how our entire team continues to rally around the team aspect of high school golf,” said head coach Tom Van Winkle in comments sent to the Banner-Press. “From our two seniors to the three sophomores, they continue to be unselfish and relish the fact that they can play for each other and not just themselves.
“This is David City’s first SNC conference championship after finishing runner-up five times, and I think that speaks volumes for their ability to keep their minds on the team aspect when things might not be going their way on any given day.”
