Golf season recap

Kailey Johnson

October 22, 2019

Over the past seven years, the West Point Beemer girls’ golf team has created a dynasty.

According to dictionary.com, the denotative meaning of the word dynasty is,” members of a family who are distinguished by their success.” 

Six of the past seven years, West Point Beemer’s girls golf team has qualified not just one or two individuals, but the whole team for the state tournament. 

The dynasty began to form when coach Keith Eriksen started coaching in 2012. His contributions to this team have drastically improved the program. Coach Eriksen thinks that the team has gotten better because of more advanced equipment and more effective practices during the season and in the off season.”

 The girls’ commitment of playing in tournaments and practicing by themselves has greatly impacted their success this season.” 

According to players, assistant Coach Diana Knaak played a big role in the team's success. 

Some of the season’s highlights include first place at the West Point Beemer Invite, Stanton's Invite, and the East Husker Conference tournament. 

Their goal this season was to finish fifth or better at the state tournament. The team finished the season strong earning second place a districts, which qualified them for the state tournament in North Platte. 

Brook Diekemper, Shelbie Woerman, and Kailey Johnson qualified individually. At state, the team placed eighth. Diekemper placed 6th with a 170. She, Johnson, and Allie Boell all improved their personal records. 

Scouting the course, the day before the tournament definitely helped the girls.

 The team's hard work and dedication throughout the season has shown and paid off.
