NORFOLK, Neb. – Omaha Westside blistered the Norfolk Country Club course on Wednesday, dominating the field to claim the Class A state golf championship.
The Warriors entered the day four shots behind Lincoln Southeast, but Westside shot a 4-under 284 to coast to an easy title, finishing 19 shots better than Creighton Prep and Lincoln Southeast.
Three golfers shot under par on Wednesday, with all of them coming from the Westside roster.
Porter Topp won the individual crown, finishing at 6-under for the tournament after firing a 4-under 68 on Wednesday.
Trevor Gutschewski finished second, while Jackson Benge tied Lincoln Southeast’s Jackson Benge for third. Gutschewski finished just one shot behind his teammate Topp for overall medalist honors. Benge and Gerch were 2-under for the tournament.
Prior to Wednesday, only 27 total golfers in all classes had notched a 36-hole state championship score under 140 in the 93-year history of the event, a mark that both Topp and Gutschewski achieved.
The team title was the sixth boys golf state championship for Westside, but the first for the Warriors since 1989.
