Blair wins triangular on Senior Night
With underclassmen Easton Chaffee on their side, senior Blair Bears Jake Stirek, Cole Truhlsen, Cole Wilkins and Ben Hagedorn were victorious Thursday at River Wilds Golf Cub.
BHS took 179 swings on Senior Night, besting second-place Tekamah-Herman and third-place Elkhorn North by four and five strokes, respectively.
Chaffee shot his team's nine-hole low score, finishing with just 40 swings. Stirek took 45, while Truhlsen carded a 46. Hagedorn added a 48 and Wilkins shot a 49 on his home course.
Elkhorn North's Harrison Weddell shot a 37, but it wasn't enough to push the Wolves bast the Tigers or the hometown Bears.
Coach Ross Udey's team also won in the junior varsity team standings, doing so by 16 strokes. Luke Ladwig shot a 51, while Tyler Lantry carded a 57. Landen Oppliger and Eli Bush left River Wilds with 59s, and Connor Wayman shot a 61.
BHS' Nicky Rothlisberger (54) and Luke Valasek (66) played nine holes, too.
