What can schools do when their league doesn’t have enough schools participating in a sport to conduct a viable league tournament?
The solution adopted by schools in the Central Kansas League is just to let schools organize whatever events they want to.
Pratt High School has chosen to join with some neighboring schools in similar league situations to conduct an unofficial CPL/CKL meet so their athletes can experience a league meet.
True, there were only four squads at the “CPL/CKL” meet held Tuesday at Cherry Oaks in Cheney, but it was still the same atmosphere as a league meet, and the Pratt girl linksters should be proud of their second place finish.
The Greenbacks with 475 points finished 2nd behind host Cheney (393.)
Morgan Schmidt 109 /5th
Taylar Fuhr 115/7th
Shelby Rchard 125/9th
Lauren Beardsley 126/10th
Kayla Baer 133/14th
Four of the five girls improved their scores from 3 weeks ago when they played an invitational at Cheney, a good sign.
Pratt High School athletic director Curtis Nightingale believes that, in the future, there may be an official CKL girls golf meet. When Larned and Hoisington join the league, the additional teams will push the number over the 7- school threshold needed for an official meet.
