Fairbury Linksters Show Improvement at Seward Invite

Taking to the course with not a full team, Fairbury battled tough conditions with high heat and high humidity, along with no breeze at Fridays 13-team Seward Invite.

Elkhorn South won the team title shooting a score of 328, while Crete was second at 404.

Fairbury had just a trio of golfers and did not score as a team.

Shyanne Adams led Fairbury with an 18-hole score of 105, Sierra Kroeker carded a 112 and Jessa Schultis turned in a score of 122.

It a tough day in terms of heat for a golf meet. We made sure that all the girls had plenty of water to drink. Sewards course is not a tough course to walk so that certainly helped, but the weather sure made for tough conditions with the high heat and humidity, Lady Jeffs golf coach Jed Martin said.
