Former Stillwater girls’ golf teammates Hailey Boner and Cassie Deeg played on competing teams recently at the 13-team Chip-N Club Invitational earlier this week at the Country Club in Lincoln in Nebraska.

Deeg, who was the 2011 individual state champion for the Ponies, shot 81-82-80 for a 243 total that placed her 36th in the individual standings as Nebraska’s fourth finisher. The Cornhuskers finished seventh in the team standings with a score of 948, 16 shots behind Boner and the North Dakota State University squad (932).

Boner, an all-state performer for the Ponies also competing in her first collegiate event, placed 42nd at the tournament with a score of 246, three shots behind Deeg. SMU won the event with a score of 903.

Scanlon wins shortstop

Stillwater and University of South Dakota graduate Kyle Scanlon won the 70th Annual Lyle Cran Stillwater Shortstop on Monday, Sept. 3 at Stillwater Country Club.

Scanlon shot a 69 in qualifying and posted a 2-up victory in the match-play semifinals to earn a spot in the finals against one of the area’s top amateur players Jordan Hawkinson, who won the highly regarded Northland Invitational in August.

Hawkinson played well in the finals, shooting a 34 on the front nine, but Scanlon recorded five birdies during a six-hole stretch to take a 3-up lead on the front side. Scanlon, who credited Dellwood Hills golf professional Jay Norman for his strong play this summer, finished off the 5&4 victory.
