Fairbury Linksters Compete at State Golf Meet

COLUMBUS Sometimes you get to play in nice weather, other times you are battling the elements.

That was the case last week for the Fairbury Lady Jeffs golf team participating in the one-day Class C Girls Golf Championships played on the Quail Run Golf Course in Columbus.

Most of the season the players were dealing with sun screen and bug spray, however last Tuesday, the golfers were dealing with rain, chilly temperatures, and wind for 18-holes of play.

Competing as a team for the first time at state since 1992, Fairbury shot a team score of 495 in the blustery conditions.

Minden won the Class C state golf title with a score of 406.

The meet was originally slated to be a two-day event but thunderstorms which produced heavy rain on Monday forced the meet to be cut in half from 36 holes to a one day 18 hole meet.

Senior Anna Vetter paved the way for Fairbury as she shot an 18-hole score of 106.
