The boys state golf championships finished across the state with a majority of local teams taking the hardware.

Creighton Prep won the Class A team title while Lincoln Southwest and Lincoln East placed second and third respectively. The Knights of Lincoln Southeast finished 5th with Columbus and Kearney rounding out the bottom half of the standings.

Max Rudder of Norris won the Class B individual title shooting a two-day total of 147, including a second-round 73 to capture the gold.

"It feels great all my hard work paying off also for my team and for all the seniors. I figured if i could keep it at even or two over i'd be right in the hunt. I knew if i just kept the ball on the course and not hit any ob and make all my putts it would be a good day," Rudder said.

Rudder also led the Titans to their first state championship in boys golf. Norris finished 12 shots better than Omaha Skutt.

For the second time in three years, the state championship goes to Sutton in Class C. Reid Wiebe led the Mustangs with a two-day total of 154. The Mustangs held off Plainview by one stroke to win the title.

Heartland Lutheran captures the gold in Class D with a two day team total of 684. Bancroft-Rosalie and Friend placed second and third, while Humphrey St. Francis, Cambridge, Franklin and Bertrand rounded out the top 10.
