North Platte girls golf wins GNAC

SCOTTSBLUFF — North Platte won the GNAC Golf Tourney, and Baylee Steele won the individual championship, while Karsen Morrison was runner-up on Friday.

"We had a couple of opening tournaments in Lincoln that we got third in. We competed really, really well. The girls slowly started to improve and we won quite a few invites this year in different kinds of ways. We’ve had different people step up, and that’s good to see," North Platte head coach Matt Kaminski said. "Baylee is a great leader, great character and is passionate and determined. She’s just very reliable and very confident player."

Steele credited her mental approach to her success.

"I think I was able to stay mentally focused," she said. "I was just able to control my bad shots and be able to fight back. On my first hole, I almost hit one for a lost ball, but then I found it in a tree and had to take an unplayable. I ended up making it up and fighting for par. When I hit a bad shot, I was able to fight back usually like I want to be able to."
