Neligh-Oakdale once again used a strong team performance to take home the team title at the Highway 20 Invite in Bassett on Monday.
The Warriors, as they have been most of the year, were lead by seniors Garett Allemang and Chase Kallhoff. Both golfers shot an 83 for the day, giving them third and fourth place, respectively.

Jordon Murray finished seventh with an 87, while Chris Bentley finished eleventh with an 89. Austin Rice would finish with a 91, good for 14th on the day. As a team, the Warriors turned in a score of 342.
Elgin Public/Pope John also had a strong day, finishing fifth with a score of 367. Leading the way for the Wolfpack was Chad Bode, with a sixth place finish at 86. Miles Schrage and Hunter Resstman both turned in strong outings, finishing at 92 and 94, respectively. Liam Heithoff finshed 24th with a score of 95 and Nicki Payne would turn in a score of 140.
Clearwater/Orchard would finish with a team score of 406, good for seventh in the standings. Ryan Wilhelm and Blake Hoke led the Cyclones with scores of 97 and 99. Grady Bellingtier would turn in a score of 105, as would Travis Rudloff. Peyton Clifton would round out the Cyclone golfers with a 116 on the day.
