NELIGH — Early April on the links in Nebraska can be a toss-up. Some days the weather will be ideal, then there are days when golf isn’t meant to be played. Elgin Public-Pope John lucked out last week as weather conditions were perfect for early spring high school golf.
On Thursday, the Wolfpack opened the 2014 season with a dual against Humphrey St. Francis at the Neligh golf course. Trevor Kosch shot a 36 over nine holes to help lead the Flyers to a 38-stroke victory over the Wolfpack, 166 to 204. The Wolfpack’s best score was turned in by two-time state tournament golfer Kyle Heithoff. Heithoff carded a 44 in his season debut. Teammate Regan Kerkman shot a 49. Other scores were Jack Borer 55, Evan Schindler 56 and Brandi Baker finished with a 68. Other scores for the Flyers were Michael Brockhaus 37, Jake Arlt 45, Cory Hassenstab 48 and Spencer Beller 50.

On the girls side, Taylor Schumacher claimed gold in the pole vault. Sophomore Jenna Parks won the 1600 meter run.

The kids continue to work hard both at practice and meets.”
