EMPORIA — The Hoisington High School girls’ golf team captured second place
at the Class 3-1A state meet on Monday. The Lady Cardinals shot a 408, which
surprised head coach Bruce Cooper.
“It was way above expectations,” Bruce Cooper said. “We entered the meet
ranked fourth or fifth, and I told my wife that I thought we’d finish between
fifth and seventh and I’d be happy. That 408 was the lowest round we’ve had
all season.”
Ashton Nickelson led the Lady Cardinals with a 49-49—98, taking eighth place.
“She teed off before the winds started,” Bruce Cooper said. “She got around
and done ahead of the winds. She tied for eighth and won the playoff in one hole.”
Senior Blakelee Cooper finished with 51-48—99 leaving her tied with four other
golfers for 10th place.
“Blakelee struggled in the wind,” Bruce Cooper said of his daughter. “She had
some big numbers early, but she recovered to finish tied in 10th. She won her
playoffs in two holes.”
The golfer that really surprised Bruce Cooper was Hannah Wilborn, who shot a
“We had a little sophomore that just flabbergasted me,” Bruce Cooper said.
“She hit her personal best at state. She got us second place.”
