RHS Girls Golf Team Places 3rd at 3-2-1A State TourneyThe Russell High School girls golf team fell short in their bid for a state championship, but still tied the school record for the program's best finish by placing third at the 3-2-1A State Tournament at Cherry Oaks in Cheney on Monday, Oct. 15.

The Lady Broncos shot a 411 and tied Cheney.  Cheney, who Russell beat on a tie break last week to win the regional title in Russell, won the tie break on Monday to finish second.  Syracuse won the team title with a 397.

Three Lady Broncos earned medals.  Megan Boxberger placed fifth with a 97.  Anna Plante was 15th with a 102.  Alex Ptacek shot a 103 and was 19th.  Janna Schulte posted 108, Megan Hendrick and 124 and Aubrey Campbell a 126.
