Norfolk High golf invite

Coach Lance Kosch walks along side Kylie Blume during the Norfolk invite at the Norfolk Country Club on Thursday. 

Judging by scores from each of the four Class A golf districts, three of the 12 teams qualifying for the state tournament at the Norfolk Country Club seem to be in a league of their own.

On paper, it appears Lincoln Southwest, North Platte or Millard North will be lifting the championship trophy late Tuesday afternoon. Comparing district scores, there is a 27-stroke difference from Millard North, which rounds out the top three teams, and Grand Island, which heads the remaining nine teams.

Host Norfolk will have one representative. Junior Kylie Ehnes-Blume is set to tee off at 10 a.m. on Monday.

“Kylie has a great chance to finish in the top 15 and bring home a medal,” Norfolk coach Lance Kosch said. “She is very excited for another chance to play in the state tournament at her home course.”
