On Oct. 9-10, the best of Nebraska High School Class C girls golfers will converge in North Platte for the Nebraska School Activities Association state championship tournament.

The event is expected to draw 90-110 golfers to the Lake Maloney golf course.

Class C is one of the highest-traveling classes with over 60 schools, so we can expect many family, friends and well-wishers to come to North Platte to watch the tournament.

It will take a small army of volunteers to ensure that these ladies have a memorable state championship experience. Helping with a state championship is rewarding. In getting to know these young women, volunteers find their hope in the leadership of tomorrow is renewed.

One of the largest needs is for scoring monitors. Monitors will accompany threesomes around the course in a golf cart, personally recording the hole-by-hole strokes of each golfer as well as helping with the speed of play, by watching tee shots and looking for lost balls. Scoring monitors do not have to make rules decisions.

At least 30 scoring monitors will be needed.

Volunteers are also needed to be official score card keepers, score board staff, spotters and real time scorers.

Anyone interested in volunteering should contact Taylor Salas at (308) 532-4729 or tsalas@visitnorthplatte.com.

Or you can apply to be a volunteer online at HERE.

Priority is given to volunteers who can work both days of the tournament. Volunteers will receive coffee and rolls in the morning, lunch, and a Nebraska School Activities Association jacket. The deadline to submit your intent to volunteer is Sept. 22.
