Chadron High School senior Alpine Hickstein signed a letter of intent to continue her golf career at Chadron State College last week. She’s undoubtedly the highest profile golfer the Eagles have ever signed.
Alpine is a four-time district champion and placed sixth at the Class C state tournament as a freshman, tied for second each of the next two years and won this year’s championship by 20 strokes with rounds of 72 and 70. The 70 is one of five that are the all-time best scores at a state tournament in Nebraska girls’ golf history. She also was the Nebraska amateur champion this past year. CSC coach John Ritzen also signed three other high school seniors last week.
