Three Bobcats medaled on Tuesday in the Basehor-Linwood girls golf team’s best showing of the year. Senior Brooke Schler (54) and juniors Julie Lough (55) and Candice Jennings (56) placed 11th, 12th and 14th, respectively, at the Santa Fe Trail Invitational.

Marriah Clayton nearly made it four medalists with her 58-shot performance, just one shot outside of the medal stand.

Basehor-Linwood placed fourth in the eight-team event with a score of 223, just two shots out of third and three away from second-place.

Holton won the tournament, finishing with 209 shots.

Freshmen Hanna Dickey and Chandley Easley played in their first tournaments on Tuesday, just one week after the Bobcats placed fourth at the Spring Hill Invitational after sending six golfers to a tournament for the first time.

“Both of them handled their nerves very well and showed that they are part of the future of the program,” Bobcats coach Bruce Courtney said.

On Sept. 19, Aubrey Gunn and Jordan Blackwell made their season debuts.

The Bobcats return to competition at Gardner-Edgerton at 3 p.m. on Monday.
