(Neb.)- New Look As CSC Golfers Enter 2017-18
PUEBLO, Colo. -- Three of the four golfers on the Chadron State College women's golf team will be experiencing their first collegiate competition when they tee off at Pueblo Country Club on Monday for the Farmer's Insurance Samuel Proal Tournament to open the 2017-18 season.
Only one, junior Sam Rahmig, returns from last year's roster which found its way to a 10th place Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference finish back in the spring. Rahmig improved her personal best 36-hole tournament score by seven strokes, at another tournament in Pueblo, back in March. The Gering native led the team in 2016-17 with a stroke average of 87.5 and led the Eagles in scoring for five of eight events.
The remaining players entering the season are all freshmen.
Logan Kasten will be among those newcomers to try and rebuild the CSC program, hailing from Cheyenne, Wyoming. The two-time top-20 golfer in Wyoming 4A led her team to a sixth-place finish at state in the fall of 2016, and a runner-up place at their conference meet in May.
Tori Meschke, of Broken Bow, paced her team at the 2016 Nebraska Class C state meet last fall, helping them to finish fifth. She also competed on the swim team in high school, and was named one of the area's Outstanding Seniors this past spring by the Kearney Hub.
Finally, the third rookie is Adrianna Weeldreyer of Newell, South Dakota. Weeldreyer led her team with a ninth-place showing at the 2017 South Dakota State Championships in June in Sioux Falls. Prior to state, she fired an all-time best round of 76 to finish on top of the standings at the 18-hole event.
The Eagles will knock the rust off at the Pueblo tournament beginning on Monday. The 36-hole tournament typically draws a dozen or more of the top teams in the region, including several from the RMAC. CSC will use this opportunity to see how they can compete as a team on the NCAA Division II level.
First tee-off is at 1:30 p.m., and the second round starts at 9 a.m. Tuesday.
